I have been absolutely obsessed with Mumford and Sons ever since I downloaded their amazing debut album back in June. Sigh No More is an incredible album, and if you haven’t downloaded it yet – stop what you’re doing and go buy it. Uh-may-zing.
I have loved the CD so much, I can’t think of a single song on the album I don’t like. Little Lion Man is my favorite, but Winter Winds, Roll Away Your Stone and Dust Bowl Dance are equally amazing.
When I heard they were coming to Portland, I hunted down their label and begged for tickets. The show was sold out in just a few hours, and I knew tickets would be hard to come by. I knew the show would be amazing.
Of course it was better than I could have ever imagined! I’ve seen a lot of shows over the years, and I think Mumford and Sons was the best show I’ve seen in a very long time. It’s not very often when the live show is better than the CD, and that was absolutely the case here.
Marcus Mumford, the lead singer is a force to be reckoned with. He is such a powerful performer, you can barely take your eyes off him when he’s singing. Every song that was sung, every banjo – drum – and guitar that was played was absolute perfection. For less than $30 you can see one of the best shows you’ll ever see. You will dance, you will clap – and when it’s over, you’ll be dying to see them again.
See them now – on this tour – while it’s still affordable (I saw Lady Gaga in Portland in 2008 for less than $20, and now that would be impossible). Mumford and Sons have the talent to take them to the next level. So now – while they’re playing the private and absolutely perfect intimate venues – do yourself a favor, and see them NOW. (Check here to see if they’re coming near you!)
Unfortunately all of their concerts (that as of now are posted) are sold out. But keep your eyes and ears open for giveaways in your area. You don’t want to miss them when they come near you.
