What are you doing, oh, say… Saturday 6th July? Well, sure hope you’re free.
Because by that time Marcus, Ben, Ted and Winston will be back on home turf in London (post-Calgary-Telluride Summer Stampede) and not only that but it will of course also officially be Summer Time. And well you know how they like to celebrate these things with friends.
By friends we mean you and these friends from the road too, presented by Gentlemen of the Road…
Tickets will then go on general sale on Friday 19th April at 9am www.livenation.co.uk.
It’s going to be a whole lot of fun. Hope to see you there.

When London folk revivalists Mumford & Sons announced their two-night stand at Susquehanna Bank Center shortly after their sophomore LP Babel dropped in the fall, both shows sold out in seconds. For those who didn’t get tickets, WXPN is broadcasting the band’s set on Sunday night the 17th in its entirety. The night begins at 8 p.m. EST [click here to convert to your own time zone] with host Mike Vasilikos live from the Susquehanna Bank Center while Haim and Ben Howard warm up the crowd. When Mumford goes on, we turn the airwaves over to the stage as the band works through songs from Babel and its 2009 debut Sigh No More. Tune in on the radio at 88.5 FM in Philadelphia or online at XPN.org. Below, check out a video of the band performing “I Will Wait” sold-out show at Barclay’s Center in Brooklyn – clearly, the local crowd is in for a high energy mass-singalong whether it’s on-air on in the flesh.
