Mumford and Sons Announce 2017 U.S. Headlining Dates
Mumford and Sons have already lined up a few U.S. dates for the May, both opening up for U2 on their tour celebrating the 30th anniversary of The Joshua Tree and some festivals. Today (Jan. 23), they revealed three more concerts for that month.
On their website, they call the shows in Louisville (May 23), Burgettstown, Pa. (May 24) and Camden, N.J. (May 25) an "opportunity to catch up with a few cities they haven’t been to recently and have a party." Those concerts are bookended by headlining slots at the Hangout Music Festival in Gulf Shores, Ala., and the Boston Calling Music Festival in Boston.
Presale for the new shows begin this Wednesday (Jan. 25) at 10AM, and those willing to participate must register with Ticketmaster by Tuesday, Jan. 24 at 3PM Eastern. The general sale for Burgettstown and Camden will be on Friday at 10AM, while the Louisville date will begin two hours later. The band have only three other shows on their calendar, which are festival dates in mid-August.
The band are also prepping the Feb. 3 release of Live From South Africa: Dust and Thunder, a DVD of last year's tour of South Africa, the first time they've performed in that country. Dust and Thunder comes in a Standard Edition with 4K video and 5.1 surround sound, and a Deluxe Edition that adds a 13-track CD, a 20-page booklet and a documentary called We Wrote This Yesterday. You can watch the trailer above and get full information, including track listings and pre-order merchandise bundles at their webstore.
