Mumford & Sons announce NZ show for November 2015.

Mumford & Sons have announced their return to New Zealand, with a Auckland date on Tuesday, November 10th at Vector Arena.

There’s special-guests yet to be announced, so I’m crossing my fingers for Jake Bugg - who will be playing Mumford & Sons’ Gentlemen Of The Road stopover show in Sydney.

Tickets go on sale to the general public from 9am on Friday, August 21st - with a Secret Sounds pre-sale also available from 9am on August 20th.

"Mumford & Sons have had a long and prosperous relationship with New Zealand, we fell in love with the Brits right before the rest of the world cottoned on. 2009's 'Sigh No More' drew us in, 2012's 'Babel' got us hooked, and 2015's 'Wilder Mind' is continuing to deepen our fascination.

Last in New Zealand in 2012, Mumford & Sons inaugural visit to our shores saw them playing to over 20,000 rapturous fans for their sold out shows in Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch.

In 2014, the band returned to the studio for some writing sessions at Aaron Dessner's (The National) garage studio in Brooklyn, New York, before laying down tracks with producer James Ford (Arctic Monkeys, HAIM, Florence & The Machine) in London. They released their third studio LP 'Wilder Mind' earlier this year. Marcus Mumford has described 'Wilder Mind' as 'a development, not a departure' as the band expand their musical horizons whilst retaining key elements of their sound.

The band spent the beginning of the year performing intimate shows for fans in Berlin, London, LA and NYC, and are now in the middle of a world tour, playing headline shows in major cities around the globe. Earlier this year they also announced the return of their personally curated two day Gentlemen Of The Road Stopover Festivals in small and unique towns in the UK and USA. They are being joined by friends like The Flaming Lips, My Morning Jacket, Ben Howard, Primal Scream, James Vincent McMorrow, and rock superstars  The Foo Fighters."
