From a press release:

A Denver-based foursome, The Fray formed in 2002 and achieved national success in 2005 with their debut self-titled release, selling over four million albums and 20 million singles worldwide, including the multi-platinum hit songs “You Found Me,” “Over My Head (Cable Car),” and “How to Save a Life.” The Fray struck a huge chord with audiences and turned their organic grassroots efforts into major success, earning a total of four Grammy nominations.

The Fray is set to perform inside the Keystone Grand Ballroom of Mohegan Sun Pocono in Wilkes-Barre on Saturday, Nov. 5 with rock band American Authors to open as special guests. Doors will open at 7 p.m., and show time is 8 p.m.

Ticket prices start at $37.50 and will go on sale this Friday, Aug. 26 at 10 a.m. through, Ticketmaster’s national toll-free charge-by-phone number at 1-800-745-3000, or any Ticketmaster outlet. Tickets are also available, free of service fees, at the Mohegan Sun Pocono box office (1280 Highway 315, Wilkes-Barre).

The group’s current and fourth album, “Helios,” was released in 2014 on Epic Records, with a signature sound that features electronic instruments, drum samples, enormous backing vocals, and production assistance from Stuart Price and Ryan Tedder. The album received early critical acclaim from the Denver Post as well as Billboard, which hailed its “bare emotion bolstered by echoing backing vocals and unexpected twang.”

The Fray has recently performed “Love Don’t Die” on the “Today” show, “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno,” “Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve with Ryan Seacrest” 2014, and “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” The Fray’s forthcoming album, “Through the Years: The Best of The Fray,” their first career-spanning compilation, will be released on Nov. 4 on Epic Records.
