When The Fray performed at the WVU Coliseum in 2009, they were promoting their self-titled album that debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart. This album featured the single "You Found Me," which peaked at No. 1 on BillBoard's Hot 100 chart in February of that same year and was their first number one single in Australia 

Prior to 2009, the band was best known for the title track off their 2006 debut album "How to Save a Life." They had also gained a large following from fans of the television shows Scrubs, One Tree Hill and Grey's Anatomy where their songs were often featured. 

The average ticket price was $29.

Read the interview The Daily Athenaeum's Paige Lavendar did with Ben Wysocki before the show.
"There's no doubt the band sounded great. Unlike many per­formers who struggle to sound genuine live, The Fray stayed true to its clean radio sound while incorporating a raw sound into their songs."  – The Daily Athenaeum
