When the Format broke up in 2008, frontman Nate Ruess regrouped and formed Fun. with the help of Andrew Dost and Jack Antonoff, venturing firmly into the realm of pop rock with the act's debut album, Aim and Ignite. That release garnered acclaim, but the group really hit the big time with Some Nights, which came out this past February. The anthemic single "We Are Young" reached the top of Billboard's Hot 100 list and landed a slew of mainstream placements: The cast of Glee, for instance, covered the song, and Chevrolet used it in a Super Bowl commercial. Fans at the Ogden will no doubt be eagerly anticipating the live rendition of that track as they experience the, er, Fun. for themselves.
