Mumford & Sons has sold out countless clubs and theaters for the past year and a half, playing bigger and bigger venues with each subsequent tour. Wednesday, they played two of the smallest, intimate shows they’ve played in a long time. First, the band recorded a VH1 Storytellers session only open to a limited amount of fans and friends of the band. In the evening, Mumford & Sons performed at an exclusive private concert at the PC Richard & Son Theater (courtesy of iHeartRadio) only open to contest winners, press and select industry folk.
Kicking off the show with the title track to their platinum album Sigh No More, the band played an eight song set that featured the hit singles “The Cave” and “Little Lion Man”. The set featured the usual shy banter from frontman Marcus Mumford and keyboardist Ben Lovett. They’re not comedians but they cracked small jokes about their concerns of playing in the heat at Coachella, all the facial hair that they saw amongst the crowd and playing Shania Twain’s “Man! I Feel Like A Woman” during soundcheck.
The band also played a new song tentatively titled “Lovers Eyes”. Check out a video of it as well as “Roll Away Your Stone” below and catch the band on the Railroad Revival Tour.
