Mumford and Sons Announce Florida Date with Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros

Mumford & Sons are like the most popular group on the planet. It doesn't matter if you've never heard any of their songs, all the rest of your family has, and they're all jazzed up about 'em.

These four Brits have announced their Gentlemen of the Road stopover shows, which includes a two day fest in Saint Augustine, Florida. Apparently, the series includes a variety of different artists in different combinations performing with the band, which has "curated" the lineups. These take place in Simcoe, Ontario, Troy, Ohio, and Guthrie, Oklahoma, which the band says, via press release, are "towns not normally frequented by touring bands in buses or splitter vans." The idea is to stimulate community and local business and stuff.

On September 13, the gentlemanly show begins in Florida. They've got Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeros and

Willy Mason performing. Then Mumford and co.'ll be waiting for you on the stage the next night

with Fun., the Vaccines, Bear's Den, Half Moon Run, and Those Darlins.

Tickets go on sale at 11 a.m. on February 8, 2013. They cost $109, which is kind of a steep ticket for a "community" event. But there aren't any additional charges, so that's fair enough. The press release says that: "Each ticket will include a beautifully-designed, commemorative Gentlemen of the Road Stopover Passport." Since sleeping under the stars in encouraged, there is a three-night camping pass that begins at $40 per person. Visit
