Fun. will also be donating one dollar from every ticket sold on this tour to The Ally Coalition.

In addition to both of these tours, Fun. will also be starring in many holiday radio concerts across the country. The concerts range from 96x’s Winter Meltdown in Norfolk, Virginia on November 28th to Z100’s Jingle Ball in New York City on December 7th.
