Mumford & Sons have revealed details of a series of shows this summer as part of a global tour - and it was stop in Salthill Park in Galway on Saturday 9th June.
Gentlemen of the Road Stopover will be headlined by Mumford & Sons, with guest slots being filled by bands personally selected by Marcus Mumford and co., and these include The Vaccines, Willy Mason, Zulu Winter, Nathaniel Rateliff and The Correspondents.
Mumford & Sons said: "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."
Tickets for the show go on sale at 9am on Saturday 21st April and will cost you €49.50.
