    Tour Announcement

    After successful surgery to remove a brain clot, Mumford and Sons bassist Ted Dwane is on the road to a full recovery. Luckily for fans, this means the dedicated band has announced plans to continue touring in 2013. On June 24, the group announced a new tour (titled “The Full English”) that will kick off at the end of August with stops in nine North American cities.

    The only Canadian stop, in Toronto, will mark the start of the trek on Aug. 26, before the British folk group heads to Queens, N.Y. (Aug. 28), Burgettstown, Pa. (Aug. 29), Noblesville, Ind. (Sept. 2), Milwaukee, Wis. (Sept. 3), and St. Paul, Minn. (Sept. 4). The new Mumford and Sons tour will then close out by turning south, with concerts in Pelham, Ala. (Sept. 9), Atlanta, Ga. (Sept. 10), and Simpsonville, S.C. (Sept. 11).

    In addition, the reigning Album of the Year GRAMMY winners have rescheduled four dates for postponed June concerts. For the majority of rescheduled performances, the original tickets will be valid for the new date.

    The list of rescheduled dates is as follows:

    Monday, Sept. 16 – Mardi Gras World – New Orleans, La. (Rescheduled from 6/13)
    Tuesday, Sept. 17 – Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion – The Woodlands, Texas (Rescheduled from 6/12)
    Wednesday, Sept. 18 – Gexa Energy Pavilion – Dallas, Texas (Rescheduled from 6/11)
    Friday, Sept. 20 – Cricket Wireless Amphitheater – Bonner Springs, Kan. (Rescheduled from 6/17)

    The original dates on the Gentlemen of the Road Stopovers will all continue as scheduled, including Simcoe, Ontario (Aug. 24), Troy, Ohio (Aug. 31), Guthrie, Okla. (Sept. 7), and St. Augustine, Fla. (Sept. 14). On each of the two-day stopovers, Mumford and Sons will co-headline with Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros, but different cities will feature various supporting bands, including Old Crow Medicine Show, Alabama Shakes, fun., and others.

    In the coming weeks, Mumford and Sons is expected to ease back into performances, with the group scheduled to headline the final day of the Glastonbury Festival in its native U.K. The massive festival was last held in 2011, when it drew more than 100,000 fans. Mumford and Sons is also on the bill for Chicago’s Lollapalooza—which runs from Aug. 2-4—alongside co-headliners like The Cure, The Killers, and Nine Inch Nails.
