Mumford & Sons Are Coming To South Africa in 2016 (Updated)
RadioActive Rock can reveal that British rockers Mumford & Sons will play shows in South Africa in 2016.
The band, famous for such massive hits as The Cave, Little Lion Man, and I Will Wait, among many others, will do intimate shows in Pretoria, Cape Town, and Durban in early 2016.
Mumford & Sons have released three studio albums, including Sigh No More in 2009, Babel in 2012, and their latest album Wilder Mind this year. Their first two albums can best be described as folk rock, featuring acoustics and banjos on most songs, whereas Wilder Mind breaks away from their old sound and tries it’s hand at harder alternative rock. Babel was in 2012 the number one fastest-selling rock album of the decade.
