Mumford & Sons add "Stampede" to summer plans
Mumford & Sons will head out for a summer road trip before taking on a handful of late summer "Gentlemen of the Road Stopover" shows.
The English folk-rock act will begin the "Summer Stampede" with a May 21 performance in Calgary, eventually working their way from the western portion of North America to the East Coast. The "Gentlemen of the Road Stopover" follows, getting underway Aug. 24 in Simcoe, Ontario, and concluding Sept. 14 in St. Augustine, FL.
The "stopovers" each span two days, with Mumford & Sons performing on the second night of each stop. Other acts on the tour include Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeros, Old Crow Medicine Show, The Vaccines, Hey Rosetta!, Dan Mangan, Willy Mason and Bear's Den.
Ticketing information for all of Mumford & Sons' shows is available at the band's website.
In September, Mumford & Sons released their sophomore studio set, "Babel," via Island Records. The collection, which debuted at the top of the U.K. Album chart and The Billboard 200, earned the group six Grammy nominations, including Album of the Year and Americana Album of the Year.
