The Mumford & Sons trek kicks off on May 21 in Calgary. The tour criss-crosses through Canada and the U.S. for a month, including three consecutive nights at the Greek Theatre in Berkeley, CA at the end of May. After wrapping up on June 20 with the Telluride Bluegrass Festival in Telluride, CO, the band heads over to Europe to take their Gentlemen of the Road Stopover tour package on the road. The band resume their North American touring duties on August 2 in Montreal at the Osheaga Festival, before playing six Stateside dates with the Gentlemen of the Road Stopover.
Mumford & Sons are riding high on the success of their sophomore release Babel, which has sold 631,000 copies in 2013 according to Nielsen SoundScan. The band also won a Grammy for Album of the Year with Babel.
