2013 Gentlemen of the Road Stopovers announced

As Pep Guardiola would probably say, keeping possession of the ball is Rules One, Two and Three of football. As Mumford & Sons would definitely say, Rules One, Two and Three of being a band are: Play Live.
The Gentlemen of the Road Stopovers are all about live music. We get to put them on in towns not normally frequented by touring bands in buses or splitter vans. We deliberately look for towns that have something unique, or some vibe of which they are proud,  explore them and enjoy what they have to offer.
It’s a real privilege that being in Mumford & Sons has allowed us to be able to shine a light on these towns, places that sometimes don’t get the love they deserve, and to be the facilitators of great musical coming-togethers. We actually get to put on our own shows. Which means that we get to ask our favourite bands to come and play a show with us, where we just get to watch them play all day. Five times in one summer too. Badass.
But there’s another rule that applies to both football and music. Doing the Stopovers means that we get to invite a whole bunch of other people to watch these bands with us. And that, the shared experience, is basically all that live music is about.
We’re really excited to be doing more Stopovers and we can’t wait to see as many of you as possible this summer!

    It’s really a bummer that brokers make all the money and actual fans can’t just go to the show. Hope I can find a way.

  3. Sarah40792 says:

    Seattle, WA would love to have you guys!!!

  4. jglatt says:

    absolutely devastated when I found out yesterday that you would be performing in Simcoe, but that your show was already sold out. I was sadly just too late. Hopefully there will be opportunities to somehow procure a ticket? maybe a draw or something. I’ll keep my hopes up, I love your music so much x

    Hey! I’m nick a big fan from Oklahoma! I head you all are coming this way and I’m very excited! But I wanted to share a little of our local music from around here. There is a band called Turnpike Troubadours that really captures us, and I would really encourage you all to check them out and see a little more about where we are coming from. Any feedback would be amazing! Look forward too seeing you all play!! It’s going to be a great time! Keep up the great music!!

  6. Hi, There! I am an elementary teacher in Houston, Texas entering a contest to earn a grant for my science lab! I have to produce a video for Big Lots and my theme is ‘Waiting for the 21st Century”. The video will feature kids all waiting for technology such as iPads, MacBooks, and an Activeboard to come to their science lab. The video is uploaded to the Big Lots website and people vote on the project they like best. I think your song, “I Will Wait” would be a perfect backdrop for my video! However, I need permission to use it. Where do I start? No idea. Thought I would start here. My email is homeforjax@gmail.com. Could I have permission to use a 90 second clip of the song?

So I just want to say thank you for the brilliant last 4 years and for the best day ever. You truly have changed my life!

    Been thinking nonstop about seeing you again nonstop the 2nd night at the Hollywood Bowl. Never thought I’d have a chance to see you in my native OK!!! Thanks for choosing Guthrie, see you there with my camping gear! I’ve never looked forward so much to September.

  36. mustardmom says:

    Going to Guthrie! About an hr & a half fm Tulsa!

  37. She. says:

    To Simcoe we will go! About a four hour drive from W. Bloomfield MI. and two of our party will be from Grand Rapids MI. Six hours for them.
    Considering buying for another show since they are still available. Like Guthrie OK What a place to see folk music. Yes I think I will!

  38. Rachael101 says:

    So excited to see you all in Simcoe!!!! Can’t believe I got tickets!

  39. Erinlg26 says:

    Managed to score tics for Simcoe. We’ll be heading up from Cape Breton, NS. Cannot wait, saw Mumford in London in Dec in an arena, but I really wanted to see them outside! So stoked!

  40. parksr1rachel says:

    Girls weekend in Troy!!! Feel way bad for those that didn’t get tickets :( wish the states could have Mumford to ourselves!

  41. rotary65 says:

    Simcoe is a 2 days drive for me. We are driving just for this. Trouble is we needed 7 tickets and got 3 before they sold out. My wife and I were on seperate accoutns for an hour trying to buy. Now we need to pick the lucky three and then figure out what the rest of us are going to do. In some ways, 3 isn’t better than none. The ones we choose to go will have a blast.

  42. heyitsmonicaaa says:

    got my ticket to Troy. That was the most stressful ticket buying waiting list thing of my life. I was worried for a second.

  43. atyra says:

    Thanks batgirl! We got 8 for Troy in two transactions! Made my day!

  44. NoelSM says:

    Just got my two tickets for Simcoe! Can’t wait!

  45. batgirl07 says:

    just an update regarding Simcoe, got through again all sold out, even if just 1 ticket selected, hope they release single day tickets!

  46. nickjackson says:

    @atyra when i got through 4 tickets was the max able to be selected (that was for Simcoe btw)

  47. batgirl07 says:

    I tried to purchase tickets for simcoe, on the standby page and have made it through to the ticket order page. Once I select my number of tickets (2) it kicks me back to the standby page. WTH is going on????? So disappointed. Still waiting just in case it makes it through again but have made it back twice and same thing happens every time.

  48. atyra says:

    For those of you that have purchased tickets, how many can you purchase in a single transaction?

  49. ALUMNI says:

    If you could use a drum and bugle corps in your Simcoe, Ontario show in any way, shape, or form , The United Alumni Drum and Bugle Corps from Simcoe may be able to help. Check us out on the Web …Thanks

  50. Getting closer…Guthrie here I come. I would love it if you could get Old Crow to show up there.

  51. Winter Winds says:
