    It says in NME you’re going on tour later this year! PLEASE BE IN THE UK! I know it is because you’ve not toured here since 2012, that’s ridiculous! Love you boys too much, can’t wait until you announce some official dates! I can’t explain how excited I am to see you!!!x

    I have a question…who was wrong in the final part of “The cave”? Ben was one tone higher…like a guy in the wrong direction on the highway. By the way…wonderful!

    Okay a while after I left my first comment the quality improved slightly. It still skipped, but it was bearable. I even hooked up my laptop to my TV and watched it on the big screen with a beer and a guitar to play along. Major improvement.

    Thank you guys! It was a wonderful documentary and an amazing concert! What a nice gift for Austin!
    I was filled with Joy all night and into today.

    I didn’t have any trouble as I was using my smart phone for the first hour. Then lost my connection & had to reconnect. After that the audio did not match the video & the signal was weak, so it was not so great just as M&S were coming on!! But I got it to work. Wished I could have seen the film. But so glad I got to see the guys!

    My problem is that I’m logged onto Myspace but it keeps asking me to log on. I can see a covered picture of the video and have great sound. When I re-log in, it asks me again to log in. Going insane =(

    The live stream quality is so bad I can’t even tell what I’m watching :(. It keeps skipping every 2 seconds and taking forever to load back up. I’ve tried it on multiple computers, same result. Technology is only great if it works. I’m trying not to lose my mind, been looking forward to this for quite a while. Hope everyone is having fun in Austin, you can’t possibly know how badly I wish I was in your shoes right now. Think I’ll end the evening with a beer.

    Hey my friend and I are really needing barcodes. If you could send me an email (we need two tickets) I would be so appreciative

  9. Mirandag91 says:

    I still haven’t received an email and my cousin did, so we are getting desperate! If anyone has a ticket they aren’t going to be able to use We would greatly appreciate it! Thanks!

    I RSVP’d for the mumford and son tickets. I’ve gotten 4 emails allowing me to print a ticket. Does that mean I received more than 1 ticket? They all have the same bar code number. So I’m assuming they are all the same ticket but i just wanted to make sure. Very confused.

  11. missALLY says:

    My friends and I registered for this on day one when it went up and never got an e-mail with tickets. We even stopped by the MySpace house on 6th and they assured us we would be in and we still haven’t gotten anything. People who registered long after us have gotten tickets… where are ours?

  12. claire_renaud says:

    Just printed my ticket! So excited!! Did anyone receive a ticket that they are not going to be using?? Was not aware that there would be a 1 ticket max and my best friend and I are OBSESSED with these bands and had the time of our lives at the Railroad Revival Tour– we need 1 more ticket so we can go together!!!

  13. SupgerDave1124 says:

    I just printed my ticket. I am speechless. I am beyond excited. But I do have to agree with the 1 ticket max. The wife is NOT as fired up as I am about all this. HAHA

  14. cnoelg says:

    Does anyone know why the tickets to the encore screening hosted by MySpace say “Ticket does not guarantee entry”?

  15. feelthetideturning says:

    @ Sunnydalegirl: I received a ticket but can’t make the trip. Wonder if you could use my name?

    I recently came across news that you all played at the White House! What a gig! I beamed with nothing but happiness when I saw your smiling faces! On another note, when will you all come to the U.K.? It’s as if you all are a million miles away… :(

  17. sunnydalegirl says:

    Got my invite to the second SXSW screening, but only for one ticket? I assumed we would get two, since people usually do not attend such events alone. So sad. :(

  18. Lunadog33 says:

    I had to cancel my trip and give away my tickets to Nashville due to pneumonia. Now you are coming to Austin!
    I feel so lucky! I just need to beg, borrow or steal to get into one of these locations.
    Had so much fun at Railroad Revival tour in April!
    I love you guys!

    My name is John Greer. I went to the show last night at the Ryman. I found this night fitting bc church is big here on Wednesday nights. I am called to be an evangelist. Your music and new songs spoke to my Holy Spirit last night. Makes me want to learn guitar in the process. Bless you guys. Best show I have ever attended. Ive been to Dave Matthews,Muse,Guster, to name a few. You guys are superb. @TheGreerski

OK,I literally was in tears..but now there is hope! The Railroad Revival Tour was the best!! I cannot wait to see the documentary and relive it all over again :) cheers
