Mumford & Sons Postpone Shows Due to Injury

Mumford & Sons were forced to cancel two festival appearances over the weekend. The group had been slated to appear at the Northside Festival in Denmark on Friday, June 15 and the Hultsfred Festival in Sweden on Saturday, June 16. However, the band explained that Marcus Mumford broke his hand and would be unable to perform. The group has just announced some alternative plans for the weeks to come.

Hello all – firstly the band are very sorry to have disappointed all fans who attended Hultsfred and Aarhus this weekend, as you know their appearances had to be cancelled due to Marcus breaking his hand. He is currently in a cast, and will be for the next few weeks.

The band have been working every minute they can over this past week with two old tour friends, Harry Cargill on guitar and Chris Maas on drums, to rehearse a set that will be sonically as close as possible to what you expect from a Mumford & Sons gig.

They will be going ahead with all other festivals this Summer and have confirmed that Hultsfred ticket buyers will be able to use the tickets to get into the Peace and Love Festival on 28th June (see www.mumfordandsons.com for details). Denmark – we haven’t forgotten you and we will try and make it up to you as soon as we can.

Thanks for being patient with us and see you this Summer!
