We've known for a while that Mumford and Sons were coming to Oz this year, and now we have the confirmed tour dates to share with you!
The band have a new album out in September, which will tie in nicely with their concert series here in October, stretching across a stack of locations including Perth, Adelaide, Brisbane, Sydney, Hobart, Melbourne and Canberra.
Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros and Willy Mason will support this fantastic folk outfit.
Keyboardist Ben Lovett revealed to Triple J "We finished our second album and it's going to be coming out later this year, and we thought what better place to do our first tour of the album then Australia? So we made sure we put together quite an extensive tour and that's what we're coming out for."
