Gentlemen of the Road Stopover shows in Huddersfield and Galway announced

We are very pleased to announce details of a series of ‘Gentlemen of the Road Stopover…’ shows this Summer. To explain more, here’s word from the band themselves:
“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.”
The one-day outdoor events will tour globally and will be headlined and curated by Mumford & Sons, with heavy involvement from local communities, from the produce sold on the sites, to engaging visitors with the towns as a whole.
In addition to the 2 confirmed Stopover shows, the band will also play a series of evening gigs preceding and inbetween, with the support acts selected from the summer show line-ups. Here are the dates and venues.

30th May – St David’s Hall, Cardiff

    After being ecstatic to find out mumford were coming to cardiff, I was so disappointed that the tickets sold out so fast. I was up early for the presale, and general sale, and didn’t get a ticket! It killed me to see the tickets selling for hundreds on ebay, please sort it out!! And please announce extra dates, I’ve waited years to see you guys here and I love your music so much!!!

  12. feelthetideturning says:

    Yes, completely agree. I am travelling all the way from the USA to attend Bushstock and Rockness and when I heard M&S where adding shows I screamed with delight. I stayed up until 1 am, 9 am UK time to purchase tickets. Tried for an hour! And no luck. Who is sucking up the tickets and then selling them on Ebay. Didn’t this happen in Nashville? Obviously something needs to change!

    I got 2 x GotRS in Huddersfield when they went on presale at 9am on 20/04/12 (they are an anniversary present for my husband as we both love the band). They are Etickets and they clearly display my name and I have to bring ID with me to prove it was me that bought them. Postal tickets are not being sent out until a few days before the event. BEWARE of Ebay tickets!

    my 1 aim in life is to meet you 4 amazing men, not as a crazy fangirl (even though my username portrays me as one), but just to casually talk to and have a drink in a country pub with, you have no idea how big a part you play in my life, p.s.. COME TO BRISTOL

    Have to agree – it is deeply frustrating to try to get tickets for a local show, be unsuccessful and then see loads of tickets on Ebay for extortionate prices. Simply ask for ID to match tickets, other big bands have done it to ensure fans actually get tickets without being ripped off. Mumford & Sons please stick up for your fans!

    Congrats Marcus! I wish you the best of luck! love you all and hope to see u in Canada soon

  18. wrotaa says:

    Congratulations Marcus :) Good luck and I hope you will be happy together :>
    Love you guys x

  19. Modernman19 says:

    Getting caught up on recent news in the media and read that Marcus recently got married. Congrats!!! May this new journey bring you great joy. Saw you guys last year in Santa Barbara, but the show still plays in my mind as if I saw you guys play yesterday. Please come back to southern California. Once again congrats!

    I am also a resident of Bury St Edmunds, and a dedicated fan (to answer an earlier post) and tried desperately to get a ticket but found they appeared to sell out in seconds! I have logged onto e-bay only to find them selling at £270 a pair for a face value of £23.50. People with touted tickets should be refused entry, come on M&S be the first band to stick up for your fans.

  21. oj2772 says:

    So did any actual fans manage to get tickets for Bury St Edmunds? I’ve had the whole day to calm down, now i’m just really cross( rather than being cross and upset!). Next time get some id from people buying tickets and attending gigs, so only the people who are actually going to attend buy them rather than all this cash going to touts. obviously delighted for anyone who did manage to get tickets – enjoy!

  22. brighton says:

    People, ignore whereistherent or anybody else defending or downplaying the situation. What’s happened with hundreds of these tickets transferring over to Ebay and other sites is not excusable. £23 tickets for £100 within half an hour, yesterday. Today, all sound out… but low and behold, plenty rip-off tickets available on Ebay. The band DO NOT need to play massive venues to please everybody; but the touts should keep out. Keep complaining, people.

  23. spendlove says:

    Looked on E bay and guess what?

  24. spendlove says:

    I live in Bury St Edmunds, I work in Bury St Edmunds, My kids school in Bury St Edmunds. Mumford and Sons are coming to Bury St Edmunds. Can someone please tell me why I cannot get tickets to see them in Bury St Edmunds. I am trying hard not to be too synical on my birthday!!!!

  25. kellyt1981 says:

    I’ve got tickets for the stopover in Galway and it says tickets will be cancelled if they’re sold on eBay etc……..

  26. Stephtat says:

    CONGRATS Marcus hope you have one amazing day today!!!!!!!!!!!!! Was dreading the day you got married but if you love her that’s fine!! I love you so much I hope you have a good day, byeeee xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

  27. Seeeeej says:

    Woooooooo so excited I only have to drive 15 minutes to see Mumford and the Marina theatre Lowestoft is a small place so will be so intimate. Good times!

    Could not get tickets for sage gateshead and now tickets being sold on ebay for at least £150. Im really unhappy that this is still able to happen. True fans who want to see them cant get tickets unless they pay stupid amounts to sly people. Would have loved to see them .

  29. loverealmusic says:

    So upset that I couldn’t get tickets for Cardiff – I agree with everyone here about ridiculous prices on ebay! Not fair for the real fans

    was sitting at my PC from 8.45 this morning waiting to get 2 tickets for me and my daughter. At 9.02 I thought I had got them, but no, while I was inputting my details it suddenly came up that there were no tickets!! Went onto Ebay and there is someone selling tickets, 8 in fact, for The leas Cliff Hall in Folkestone (where I wanted tickets for). That person is selling them at £99 EACH (face value £23.50). How the hell did that person get 8 tickets when I couldn’t manage to get 2? I know it’s nothing to do with M & Sons, but surely there is a better way to make sure fans get tickets rather than all the touts. I would rather have queued outside the venue all night to try to get a ticket than have to suffer from this farce.
    A very disappointed fan who’s whole weekend has been ruined.

    (St Davids Hall gig) I’m a teenager, and to find out the band I love most was playing in a reachable distance from me was amazing! So I got up early, and got completely ready before nine. When the clock hit nine I called up, got through and as I was just about to say how many tickets I wanted the line went dead. So I call again, engaged. I do it again, te same thing. I frantically get my dad to try and book online but the servers down. In less than 10 mins they had sold out. So instead of paying £25 from the venue I would of had to of gone to one of the company’s who bought the tickets ad pay £80 (minimum) instead. Now, I’ve just got a job and its amazing pay for my age but I currently work once a month. How the he’ll am I meant to pay like £90 in a day?! It’s ridiculous, and has totally ruined my weekend…

  32. whereistherent says:

    Look guys, the bottom line is that M&S are incredibly popular, these are small shows and more people want to see them then there are tickets available. Genuine fans will have got tickets, the only way the band could possibly please everyone is by constantly playing massive venues. Some of you missed out on this occasion, that’s life. The guys will tour again soon, no doubt in bigger venues and you’ll just have to try again! Stop taking it personally.

    I have sat for 2 mornings trying to get 4 tickets for myself, husbad and 2 sons. Today I managed to get 2 but during final stage of submitting payment received notification that they were sold out! 2 years ago we paid £180 for 3 tickets with face value of £18 each because we wanted to see them so much – will not be doing that again! It’s an absolute disgrace that people are getting away with making so much money on these ticket sales it has to be stopped.
