Mumford & Sons have captured hearts and set toes a-tapping with their unique folk rock. This band sounds like something from the 1960s, but it’s a modern group that is definitely active. In fact, Mumford & Sons has just announced a U.S. tour that will begin in February 2013.

It hasn’t been all that long since Mumford & Sons was last on tour in the United States. The group played at a few somewhat-small venues for its 2012 summer tour. In the meantime, the English group headed to Australia to play a few venues in October, with plans to return to the U.K for several winter shows at part of the full-length Tour of Two Halves. This tour marks the release of the band’s newest album: “Babel.” The newest release gives Mumford & Sons twelve new songs to play for fans at the upcoming American shows. An increase in popularity also means that Mumford & Sons will be playing at larger venues come 2013.

The American tour originally included just four East Coast stops. Mumford & Sons has added three repeat shows to the lineup to appease fans, however:

  • TD Garden in Boston on February 5
  • Barclays Center in Brooklyn on February 6
  • Barclays Center in Brooklyn on February 12
  • Patriot Center in Fairfax, VA on February 13
  • Patriot Center in Fairfax, VA on February 14
  • Susquehanna Bank Center in Camden, NJ on February 16
  • Susquehanna Bank Center in Camden, NJ on February 17

Although the American leg of the tour is short, the group will head back to Europe for another full-length tour, starting with astop in Warsaw in February. It’s obvious that Mumford & Sons has been a busy group. The young musicians have been working nonstop since their summer tour and will only take a short break during January and part of December.

The commitment has certainly paid off for the group. Mumford & Sons has only been an active band since 2007, and the band has already earned two Grammy nominations — Best New Artist and Best Rock song — for the debut album, “Sigh No More.” The group also has under their wing the ARIA Music Award for Most Popular International Artist, and this has all happened before Mumford & Sons released their sophomore album this year.

American fans can see these rising stars once they purchase tickets for the February shows. Sites like Ticketmaster and will begin selling the tickets on the morning of November 9th. Some of the group’s European shows are already sold out, a testament to the success and popularity of Mumford & Sons. It’s an impressive feat when you consider that the front man, Marcus Mumford is only 25 years old this year. You can expect that the limited Americans shows will soon sell out, so get your tickets while they’re available because you don’t want to miss out on this concert experience.
