Mumford & Sons Announce 2012 Tour Dates + Gentlemen of the Road Stopovers

The Mumford & Sons have just recently announced the details of their 2012 tour dates, and have also announced details of a series of Gentlemen of the Road Stopovers in the United States.

The general tour begins on August 1st in Hoboken, NJ. The band will sweep across the nation for the entire month of August until September 1.

In addition, Mumford & Sons is setting up a series of mini “festivals” featuring local bands at specific cities in America, otherwise known as The Gentlemen of the Road Stopovers. The Gentlemen of the Road Stopovers quickly sold out.

The Stopovers combine excitement and intimacy over the community. Each Stopover will begin with a local band and then feature local activities, businesses, and people. Mumford & Sons will headline the event. The band themselves curated the other artists.

Here is what Mumford & Sons have to say about The Gentlemen of the Road Stopovers and the tour itself:

The Gentlemen of the Road Stopover is based loosely upon our favorite festivals like Colorado’s Telluride Bluegrass and Scotland’s Loopallu Festivals. We want to stop off in towns where bands don’t usually tour, and celebrate the local people, food and music.
We’re keen to promote the town’s local businesses, and we’ll be using the local bars and venues for after-show parties, whilst working closely with the local people to get everyone involved in making these shows spectacular. There will be a host of our friends playing too, and the vibe falls somewhere between ‘travelling Victorian circus’ and ‘Victorian travelling circus’. It should be a whole lot of fun.
