Mumford & Sons extend 2013 U.S. tour dates -- St. Paul in September
This is a date that many folk-rock fans in the Midwest have been waiting for. Mumford & Sons have just announced a new stretch of The Full English tour dates that will bring them across the United States to several cities that often get left off major tour schedules. And then there's the Twin Cities, which has developed a feverish love for these Brits over the past couple years.
The shows are in support of last year's Grammy-winning Babel, and they signal good news for the recovery of bassist Ted Dwane. Earlier this month, he underwent surgery to remove a blood clot from his brain. Three concerts, including a stop at the Bonnaroo festival, were canceled while Dwane was in treatment and recovery. Now, back to business.
The Mumfy bus stops in St. Paul on September 4 when the guys play the Xcel Energy Center, a considerably larger room than the Varsity and First Avenue back in 2010. How has so much time passed between visits?
The shows will also include celebrated Brit-rockers the Vaccines and Bear's Den.
