Inspired by folk, rock, country, and bluegrass, the London-based Mumford & Sons feature singer/guitarist/drummer Marcus Mumford, vocalist and banjo/Dobro player Winston Marshall, vocalist/keyboardist Ben Lovett, and vocalist/bassist Ted Dwane. The foursome started playing together in 2007; though they were playing with other bands at the time, they bonded over their shared love of rootsy music. Mumford & Sons quickly became a part of London’s underground folk scene, which included acts like Laura Marling and Noah and the Whale.

Mumford & Sons are pleased to announce the details of their upcoming North American tour. The band will be performing a number of shows through May and June, beginning on May 21 in Calgary before playing shows along the West Coast and Southwestern states. All of the band’s headlining shows will be supported by Michael Kiwanuka and Mystery Jets.

Tickets for Mumford & Sons headline shows will be available as part of an Invitation Onsale, which will begin Monday, March 25th, exclusively at HERE.. Fans can register for an invitation to purchase early tickets for up to five shows along the tour (excluding festivals). The Invitation On-sale is designed to give as many people as possible an equal chance to purchase tickets, and to ensure that as many tickets as possible end up in the hands of fans. For more information, visit wwww.mumfordandsons.com. There will also be a traditional on-sale following the invitation on-sale, which will be next Friday, April 05, for all dates.

The tour also includes the band’s headlining slot at the annual Bonnaroo Music Festival on June 15 in Manchester, TN, and precedes the band’s anticipated “Gentlemen of the Road Stopover” shows, happening in August and September in Simcoe, ON; Troy, OH; Guthrie, OK; and St. Augustine, FL. Following the success of last year’s Stopovers, the band expanded the Stopovers to two-day events. For more information, go to: gentlemanoftheroad.com
