The Fray kicked off the men’s NCAA Championship game against the Kentucky Wildcats and Kansas Jayhawks last night in New Orleans. Yowza, this was really rough to listen to (from a musical perspective at least). I don’t understand how the producers could have listened to their sound check and thought “Yes, yes this is how I want my show to begin tonight.”
I’m a little confused what the strange acoustic guitar and tambourine were doing in this emo rendition. The arrangement on the whole was a bit of a disaster. Bottom line, I don’t think the Fray are going to be asked to perform the any more national anthems, but at least they knew the lyrics. Everyone should just have Jim Cornelison sing the anthem, he knows what’s up!
