Mumford & Sons Announce Summer Stopovers Shows

.
For the second year in a row, Mumford & Sons will be launching a series of Gentlemen of the Road Stopovers this summer.

This year the stopovers will be taking place in the UK, US, and Canada and have been expanded to a Friday night concert followed by an all-day Saturday event.

Mumford & Sons will headline the Saturday show, alongside an eclectic and energetic roster of artists curated by the band themselves.

The band had this to say, "The Gentlemen of the Road Stopovers are all about live music. We get to put them on in towns not normally frequented by touring bands in busses or splitter vans. We deliberately look for towns that have something unique, or some vibe of which they are proud, explore them and enjoy what they have to offer."

The outdoor events will take place in locations across the United States and Canada following a stop in the UK, and will feature acts including Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros, The Alabama Shakes, fun., The Vaccines, and many more to be announced. This year's host towns include Simcoe, Ontario, Troy, OH; Guthrie, OK; and St. Augustine, FL.
