Mumford & Sons Announce Gentlemen Of The Road Takeover At London's All Points East
New York, NY (Top40 Charts) Mumford & Sons are very pleased to announce a huge headline show at London's Victoria Park this Summer in a special collaboration between All Points East and their own Gentlemen of the Road events on Saturday June 1.
This is the second time the band will have brought Gentlemen of the Road, their own community-minded festival set-up, to an established event, having taken over a full day's line-up at the Latitude and Longitude Festivals back in 2017.
The band have been very busy curating the full line-up, and bringing a typically eclectic collection of big name artists to London. Joining Mumford & Sons will be Leon Bridges, who also preceded the band in Auckland's Western Springs back in January, Dizzee Rascal, old friends The Vaccines, BRITs Critics Choice' winner Sam Fender, Dermot Kennedy, Jade Bird, Australia's Gretta Ray, and Canadian newcomers, Dizzy. Many more artists will be announced in the lead-up to the event.
Reflecting the band's collective and individual tastes with an emphasis on big, exciting live performances, the GOTR x APE line-up brings some globally established names and fast emerging new faces to London, and kicks off the festival season with a monumental first bow.
Mumford & Sons follow All Points East with another huge Summer night out in Dublin at Malahide Castle on Friday 14th June. The support acts feature Norway's enchanting AURORA, and local talent Dermot Kennedy and Wild Youth.
In November 2018, Mumford & Sons released their acclaimed fourth album, Delta. Debuting at number 1 in the US for the third time in the row, it's a record that marries a more experimental sound with that vast sky-scraping jubilance that has made the band such a massive deal right across the world. The band also released a new acoustic video for their latest single "Beloved" today, watch below:
Gentlemen of the Road is an endeavour of Mumford & Sons which produces community-minded touring Festivals. With a commitment to giving back to the causes the band are close to, Gentlemen of the Road & its Fund will be supporting global charities, local programs, urgent needs, and will always do what it can to protect the planet. Having already taken GOTR around the globe with weekend Stopovers in England, Ireland, the US and Australia, each and every event puts due prominence on the town or city they arrive in, ensuring the local community are as involved with its planning as they want to be, and offering a spotlight on the locale to a huge audience.
Following a handful of arena shows around Delta's release, Mumford & Sons will now emphatically return to the live stage, playing two shows in Canada at the beginning of March, see details below.
Canadian Arena Shows:
March 4—Montreal, QC—Bell Centre
March 5—Ottawa, ON—Canadian Tire Center
