Mumford and Sons, return to Manchester, Tennessee on Saturday, June 13 . They will perform on the main stage/What Stage from 11:00 p.m. to 1:00 a.m.
After a setback in 2013, the band continues to push forward in 2015 with a headlining set at the Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival. The group debuted at Bonnaroo in 2010, and have continued to set crowds on fire worldwide for over the past five years. This international powerhouse returns to the farm to lay down new music from their latest release Wilder Mind. The album went to #1 in the UK and the United States.
Ted Dwane, bassist, checked himself into a hospital in early June 2013. Surgeons found a blood clot on the surface of his brain and performed surgery to remove it. The band went on to cancel the rest of its Summer Stampede Tour including their Bonnaroo performance. Jack Johnson and friends filled in for the 2013 set, and Jack noted that he would like to share the stage with the group down the road.
The band has regrouped and recently released Wilder Mind. They have a extensive summer tour planned with sold out shows lined up leading into the Bonnaroo Music Festival.
This will mark my first time seeing the band perform live. I have picked up three of their albums, and find their material to showcase depth. After seeing their performances stream online, I find their performance to hold a great deal of weight to the history of Bonnaroo.
Stream ‘The Wolf’ off of Wilder Mind below on YouTube, as well as their 2011 Bonnaroo performance.
