Mumford and Sons have announced a run of intimate Irish dates including a very special late show at Dublin’s Olympia Theatre on Friday 18th March.
These Irish shows are an inclusion to the bands already sold out tour of the Scottish Highlands. On a statement released through their website the band said:
“We’re focusing on making another album this year so we’ve decided to do a tour where we can get up close with people and road test some new song ideas. We wrote the first album by trying to play new songs live as much as we could – it’s a really helpful way to get to know a song, and to see if it has the legs that it needs to go on an album. It’s hard to tell sometimes when you’re in a small rehearsal room in Wandsworth.
“We also love touring Scotland and Ireland, going back to our Celtic routes, and wanted to take the chance to play some beautiful smaller towns that often get ignored on the more traditional touring routes. We figured that playing smaller shows would take us back to the beginning of our touring lives again.”
