Mumford & Sons Bringing the Delta Tour 2019 to Phoenix!
Mumford & Sons will continue their worldwide Delta Tour 2019 this fall with newly confirmed stops at Phoenix’s Talking Stick Resort Arena, San Francisco’s Chase Center, Mexico City’s Pepsi Center WTC, Houston’s Toyota Center and Dallas’ American Airlines Center among others. Joining the tour in support is Gang of Youths—watch the band and Mumford & Sons perform a cover of “Bloody” by The Middle East here. Verified fan pre-sale begins this Thursday, June 27 at 10:00AM local time with general on-sale starting Friday, June 28 at 10:00AM local. Tickets for the Mexico City, Guadalajara and Monterrey dates go on-sale Monday, July 1 and Wednesday, July 3 at 11:00AM CST. Full details are available via www.mumfordandsons.com/live.
The band continues to receive widespread praise for their sold-out live performances; the Albany Times Union declares, “Mumford & Sons has developed into an arena-rock juggernaut,” while The Washington Post proclaims, “The U.K. quartet thrilled a packed Capital One Arena crowd...undeniably wondrous arena rock anthems” and Billboard asserts, “It’s exactly the kind of tour that will solidify their spot in the pantheon of arena-friendly bands.”
The song comes from Mumford & Sons’ new album, Delta, which debuted at #1 on the Billboard 200, Americana/Folk Albums, Alternative Rock Albums and Rock Albums charts with 230,000 equivalent album units earned (stream/purchase here). This is the band’s third consecutive #1 debut, the largest sales week for an alternative rock album in 2018 and the sixth- largest debut among all titles last year (Gentlemen of the Road/Glassnote Records).
Produced by Paul Epworth, Delta was written collectively by the band and recorded at London’s The Church Studios and continues to receive widespread critical acclaim...
