Fun. will add another milestone to their high-profile year when they perform at the White House’s fifth annual Salute to the Troops concert on the Fourth of July.
President Obama, his family and the USO will host the Grammy-winning group and over 1,200 troops and their families on the South Lawn of the White House. The hour-long concert will be streamed live via the White House’s website beginning at 8:10 p.m. EST.
Previous performers at the Salute to the Troops event – which also includes a barbecue and games for the soldiers and their families – include the Foo Fighters, the Killers, Brandi Carlile and Brad Paisley. Fun. will kick off their North American tour on July 6th in Toronto, with visits to European and Asian festivals interspersed throughout the summer.
