Watch: fun.’s drinky ‘Carry On’ video arrives as band announces tour dates

10.24.12 5 years ago

Fueled By Ramen

The band fun.’s “Carry On” always sounded like a drinking, transitional song from a musical. In their music video for the track, the band took the cue.

The three-piece pop-rockers take to the New York city twilight and to its pubs for shots and grinning shenanigans for the track, which is the third single from “Some Nights” (after solar eclipse “We Are Young” and the title track). The musical vibe is only helped by Nate Ruess’ incessant suspender urges and everybody’s textbook definition of “boyish charm.” Where’s the conflict for the second act?

The clip arrives in time for fun.’s tour dates announcement. The headlining stint starts Jan. 23 and runs through Feb. 16 and is a continuation of the group’s fall/winter trek, many dates to which are already sold out. Tickets for the new shows — excluding big ‘uns like Radio City Music Hall — go on sale on Oct. 26.

For Nov. 3, fun. also won the “Saturday Night Live” lottery… not because they’re playing “SNL” (because, hell, even Karmin played that ish) but because all of your friends are going to be copping your TV that night to watch the evening’s host Louis C.K. There’s a gig fun.’s not “too nice” for.
