Mumford And Sons June Tour Details With Support From The Vaccines, Willy Mason And Michael Kiwanuka Plus More Guests

Mumford & Sons kick-off a series of UK shows this week, including their big 'Gentlemen of the Road Stopover.' gigs in Huddersfield & Galway alongside the likes of The Vaccines, Michael Kiwanuka, Zulu Winter, Slow Club, Willy Mason & more.

These one-day, outdoor events will tour globally, kicking off in Greenhead Park, Huddersfield (UK) on Saturday 2nd June, followed by Salthill Park, Galway (Ireland) on Saturday 9th June.

Both shows will be headlined by Mumford & Sons, and will feature full bills of support acts curated by the band themselves.

Ahead of the shows the band have compiled a playlist of their favourite songs from each of the artists playing these June events.

Mumford & Sons said: "The Gentlemen of the Road Stopover is based loosely upon our favourite festivals like Colorado's Telluride Bluegrass and Scotland's Loopallu Festivals. We want to stop off in towns not usually heavily toured by bands, and celebrate the people, food and music that inhabit them. We're keen to promote the town's local businesses, and we'll be using the local bars and venues for aftershow parties, whilst working closely with the local people to get everyone involved in making these shows spectacular. There will be a host of our friends playing too, and the vibe falls somewhere between 'travelling Victorian circus' and 'Victorian travelling circus'. It should be a whole lot of fun."

All of the Gentlemen of the Road Stopover shows will heavily involve the local communities, from the produce sold on the sites, to engaging visitors with the towns as a whole.

The band will also play a series of evening gigs preceding and between the Stopover shows, with the support acts selected from the Summer show line-ups.

Tickets for all dates are on sale now through Music Glue. Tickets cost £49.50 (Huddersfield), _45.00 (Galway), and £23.50 for all other dates.
