AUSTIN — In its eleventh year, the Austin-based Austin-based band Fun Fun Fun (FFF) was among the largest touring bands in history — packing out arenas and stadiums around the country for nearly 20 years.

The group has sold 15 million records in its nine-year career, surpassing the sales record for a solo act (the group topped the chart in 1999 with 18.3 million albums sold) and is currently the most
