The Fray is best known for their song "How to Save a Life," the title track on their debut album, which charted in the top three of the Billboard Hot 100 and was featured on ABC’s Gray’s Anatomy. The Grammy Award-nominated quartet also found national success with the song "Over My Head (Cable Car)", which became a top 10 hit in the United States and Canada. The album "How to Save a Life" was later certified double platinum.

The Denver act most recently released its self-titled follow-up album, which included the hit “You Found Me.” The single was aired on ABC during a commercial advertising the upcoming season of the show "Lost" and quickly climbed the charts from there. Since then, the group has also found success on the airwaves with the hit single “Never Say Never.”

Nathaniel Rateliff and The Wheel -- another Denver act and side project of the group Born In The Flood -- will accompany The Fray on their trip to the Bryce Jordan Center. The group’s drummer played with The Fray during their recent appearance on the American Music Awards.
