Mumford & Sons to play Bury summer gig

MUMFORD & Sons will play a show at Bury St Edmund’s Apex this summer.

The folk-rock outfit, whose album Sigh No More has sold over a million copies, will visit Suffolk on June 4 as part of their Gentlemen of the Road Stopover tour.

The band said it is keen to take a less-trodden tour route.

A statement said: “We want to stop off in towns not usually heavily toured by bands, and celebrate the people, food and music that inhabit them.

“We’re keen to promote the town’s local businesses, and we’ll be using the local bars and venues for aftershow parties, whilst working closely with the local people to get everyone involved in making these shows spectacular.”

Tickets will go on sale from local outlets and www.musicglue.com from 9am on April 20 and on general sale from April 21, costing £23.50.
