Delta Tour

Mumford & Sons are excited to announce details of a huge world arena tour in support of their forthcoming fourth album, Delta.

The band’s biggest tour since forming ten years ago, they’ll perform the show on a new ground-breaking stage right across the middle of the room. Support in the UK comes from the magnificent Maggie Rogers.

Mumford & Sons release Delta on the 16 November through Gentlemen of the Road/Island Records. Introduced by the frenetic, persistent rhythms of first single Guiding Light, it’s a wildly experimental record that effortlessly marries the intimacy and jubilance of the band’s first two records, with the scope and stadium-sized dynamics of 2015’s Wilder Mind.

One of the most successful acts to come out of the first decade of the 21st century's English folk revival, London's Mumford & Sons' agreeable fusion of bluegrass, folk, country, and rock has found favour with audiences all around the world. Formed in 2007 by singer / guitarist / drummer Marcus Mumford, vocalist and banjo / Dobro player Winston Marshall, vocalist / keyboardist Ben Lovett, and vocalist / bassist Ted Dwane, the quartet bonded over their shared love of roots music - their moniker is meant to invoke the impression of an antiquated family business name. At that time the West London folk scene was becoming increasingly vibrant with the arrival of fellow new traditionalists like Laura Marling, Noah and the Whale and Johnny Flynn but Mumford & Sons have gone on to outsell and outshine them all with their success!

Maggie Rogers

Maggie Rogers appearing at this event

A songwriter, banjo player and producer from Brooklyn. She received an unexpected break when Pharrell Williams dropped into her study class to give some tips. Maggie played him her latest song, Alaska, a precise fusion of folk and dance music. As the chorus kicked in, Pharrell’s eyes grew wider and wider. By the end, he was her biggest fan.
