For the first time since hitting it big time, Mumford & Sons‘ tour will FINALLY stop in Cleveland on Saturday, March 9 at Quicken Loans Arena!
Marcus Mumford and his bandmates have won a number of music awards throughout their career, with Sigh No More earning the band the Brit Award for Best British Album in 2011, a Mercury Prize nomination and six overall Grammy Award nominations. The live performance at the 2011 Grammy ceremony with Bob Dylan and The Avett Brothers led to a surge in popularity for the band in the US. The band received eight total Grammy nominations for ‘Babel’ (released in 2012) and won the Grammy Award for Album of the Year. The band also won the Brit Award for Best British Group in 2013.
The lads are currently on tour in support of their most recent release, ‘Delta.’ Produced by Paul Epworth, ‘Delta’ was written collectively by the band and recorded at London’s The Church Studios. The band debuted the album at a series of exclusive fan listening events. The screenings, which took place at theatres across the globe, featured the complete album audio accompanied by visuals curated in partnership with National Geographic. Of the concept, the band shares, “While we were recording and mixing Delta, we watched a lot of films on silent including some pretty epic wildlife films by National Geographic—like a vision-track to our soundtrack. So, we felt it would be a nice idea to let fans experience the record in this way too.”
“Guiding Light” is the lead single from the record, which debuted at #1 on the Billboard 200, Americana/Folk Albums, Alternative Rock Albums and Rock Albums charts with 230,000 equivalent album units earned (stream/purchase here). Released on Gentlemen of the Road/Glassnote Records, this is the band’s third consecutive #1 debut, the largest sales week for an alternative rock album in 2018 and the sixth-largest debut among all titles last year. In celebration of the release, the band recently returned to NBC’s “Saturday Night Live!” as musical guests performing both “Guiding Light” and “Delta.”
Marking ten years since Mumford & Sons made their meteoric debut, the new music follows 2015’s ‘Wilder Mind,’ which debuted at No. 1 in the U.S., U.K., Australia Canada, Ireland, the Netherlands and Norway and, most recently, 2016’s collaborative ‘Johannesburg’ mini album.
The band’s latest two albums, ‘Wilder Mind’ and ‘Delta,’ explore more diverse sounds than the previously released ‘Sigh No More’ and ‘Babel,’ straying from the banjo and kick drum heavy Americana sound that earned the group popularity. The gamble paid off, and their live shows feature a blend of their “old” and “new” sound.
All tickets are reserved and priced at $101.50, $81.50, $61.50 or $41.50.
