Mumford & Sons, Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros, and Old Crow Medicine Show Railroad Revival Tour

Mumford & Sons, Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros, and Old Crow Medicine Show are teaming up for a tour this April that is unlike any in recent memory.

Traveling exclusively in vintage railcars, the three bands will journey across the American Southwest over the course of a week. The aptly titled Railroad Revival Tour will feature the three bands playing concerts at six unique outdoor locations along the route, beginning April 21st in Oakland, California.

The Railroad Revival train is 1,500 feet long and consists of 15 vintage railcars from the 1950s and 60s, pulled by two locomotives. The bands will eat, sleep, and record on the train as they travel across the American Southwest, bringing their collaborative vision to fans from California to New Orleans.

The bands will have equal billing and equal time on stage, in an environment that encourages creativity and cross-pollination. The entire tour will be the focus of a documentary that captures the spirit of the journey and gives intimate insights into the creative process.

When asked about the inspiration for putting on a tour like this, Alex Ebert of Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros commented, "From hobos to the wild west, trains have always been a fascination of mine. This tour is going to be rad."
