Who was lucky enough to get tickets to this warm up gig on Monday?
“Mumford & Sons will be warming up for what’s set to be a busy summer with a last minute show, playing songs from all 3 albums, at Brighton’s Dome Corn Exchange….please be aware, if you do get tickets: because the gig is happening pre-album release, the band have requested that all mobile phones and recording devices be prohibited inside the venue”April 24, 2015 at 10:23 am #3057
Are there still any left?April 24, 2015 at 10:32 am #3058
Sorry Cliff, The link that was sent via the mailing list shows it as sold out.April 24, 2015 at 1:15 pm #3061
Sadly I have a gig clash, I’m going back home down to Devon to see Ben Howard on his arena tour.
Genuinely gutted. Would have tried to get tickets otherwise.April 24, 2015 at 1:44 pm #3065
is it likely anyone selling a couple tickets?April 24, 2015 at 2:15 pm #3068
I thought it would have been another bun fight for tickets, but in the end it was “pain free”.
Can’t wait for Monday.April 24, 2015 at 4:47 pm #3071

I never got the email! Last thing I had from the mailing list was on Monday (re Snake Eyes) but I never got this gig announcement and ticket link. Checked my junk folder but it’s not there either. Gutted. Could have gone.April 24, 2015 at 5:28 pm #3074
I wish I could go but sadly, I’m in the states. I need to remember to apply for some credit cards for times like this ;)
Wishing you all a happy and awesome Monday gig!

Thank you for the set list, Anna! Here is another one from instagram.
I am so so so happy to see Thistle and Weeds and After The Storm on there. I haven’t heard them live in AGES and I hope they keep them around for a few gigs.

What a superb gig. The venue is in the heart of Brighton, the crowd of 900-1000 (?) was up for it! Starting with Only Love really worked. Interestingly, on a sound check / rehearsal set list seen after the gig, they previously had penciled in ‘Wolf’ as the opener.
Stage set up includes two drum kits. Thistle is Ted & Chris both on the kits = epic. Tom on fiddle throughout the show, & Nick and Dave back on horns. The band were on top form. The band may have not played a ‘full gig’ for a while, but it did not show. The sound was Spot on. Excellent Lighting gave the songs additional depth & mood. Everyone was rocking out on stage, & the crowd loving it all. Having no phones / cameras etc present again was fantastic. One focus: THE MUSIC.
My personal favourites from the night: hearing After the Storm, Ditmas, lover of the light, & Just Smoke. Intertwining ‘old’ and new songs really flowed. Thanks for an truly awesome night.April 28, 2015 at 11:11 pm #3149
That sounds like an amazing experience, Anna. I will be eternally jealous. A few nerdy fan questions:
-I know acoustics are back, but are the arrangements exactly the same? Any small changes, e.g. double for bass gutter on any songs?
-Did Thistle/Dustbowl have the extended openings?
-Did Winston look like he was enjoying playing the banjo as much as the electric guitar?
-Did the crowd know the words to Believe/The Wolf/Snake Eyes?
-Did Winston play dobro on After the Storm?
-Were there any transitions/interludes between songs?
-Just Nick and Dave on horns, no Rich?
Feel free to answer any/none, I’m sure you won’t remember answers to all!April 30, 2015 at 6:38 am #3181
I will try and answer some of your questions! I have to confess, it wasn’t a gig where I was taking in the small acoustic differences / arrangements of songs, as I was enjoying seeing / hearing all 3 albums being intertwined too much!
Thistle & Dust Bowl did have extended openings.
Did Winston look like he was enjoying playing the banjo as much as electric guitar? HELL YES. The whole band played with such passion, it was fantastic to see. In my view the magic they create playing live has been heightened with these new songs. They all gave so much to every song. Marcus requested a fresh mic half way, due to spit issues! Nice! Now that is effort!
The crowd went mad for Believe & the wolf & knew the words. Snake eyes was recognised, but not as much as the other two.
I was SO HAPPY to hear After The Storm again, I did not note what Winston was playing.
There were the usual interludes / guitar changes / drum kit changes / banter between songs.
Just Nick & Dave on horns. And of course the talented Mr Hobden on fiddle.
The sound was just SO good. And the vibe between everyone on stage was positive, passionate & so happy.
The upcoming shows are going to be brilliant!
