Mumford & Sons Set For Summer Stampede
April 2, 2013
(Update 6/17) Mumford and Sons have cancelled the final three dates of their U.S. tour to support their bass player Ted Dwane, who underwent brain surgery last week. He has been released from the hospital and and is expected to make a full recovery.
Having already won a Grammy for Best Album and a BRIT Award for Best British Group, the nu-folk scene’s biggest success story are set to continue their incredible year with the release of Mumford and Sons tickets for a new North American tour.
The Summer Stampede will begin at Calgary’s Scotiabank Saddledome on May 21st with tickets currently on sale with a get-in price of $194 and an average of $399, just four dollars more than the overall tour average. The London quartet will then take in a further two Canadian dates at Edmonton’s Rexall Place on May 22nd (get-in price $184, average $446) and Surrey’s Holland Park on May 24th before travelling to the U.S.
Alongside headline sets at George’s Sasquatch! Festival on May 26th, New Orleans’ Mardi Gras World on June 13th, Manchester’s Bonnaroo on Jun 15 and Telluride Bluegrass Festival on June 20th, the band will also perform 13 Stateside dates of their own.
Mumford and Sons tickets for the shows at Berkeley’s Greek Theatre on May 29th ($193, the lowest get-in price of the tour/$305) and 31st ($249/the lowest average price of the tour $289) are available, although there are only a handful remaining for the latter. While there are still tickets left for the gigs at San Bernardino’s San Manuel Amphitheater on June 2nd ($141/$470), Phoenix’s Desert Sky Pavilion on June 5th ($132/$399), Dallas’ Gexa Energy Pavilion on June 11th ($149/$437) and Spring’s The Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion on Jun 12 ($154/$476).
The group will also return to the States at the end of August for a Gentlemen of the Road Stopover tour where they will play alongside Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros, Old Crow Medicine Show, Willy Mason, The Vaccines, Hey! Rosetta, Dan Mangan and Bear’s Den at four towns (Simcoe, Troy, Guthrie, St Augustine) that are often considered to be ignored by most touring bands.
The fastest-selling album of 2012 in their UK homeland and second only to Taylor Swift’s Red for the title of highest first week sales in the US, their second album, Babel, will undoubtedly make up the bulk of the set-list, with recent singles, “I Will Wait,” “Lover of the Light” and “Whispers in the Dark” likely to inspire the biggest mass sing-alongs.
But fans with Mumford and Sons tickets should also expect to hear the big hits from their 2009 debut, Sigh No More (“Little Lion Man,” “The Cave,” “Winter Winds”). While their first series of North American dates earlier this year also saw them cover the likes of Marvin Gaye’s “Baby Don’t You Do It,” Bruce Springsteen’s “Atlantic City” and The Band’s “The Weight.”
