Following the success of last year’s series of seven total stopover shows, Mumford & Sons will expand this summer’s “Gentlemen of the Road” stops to two days, each with a Friday night concert and an all-day Saturday event. Mumford & Sons will headline the Saturday shows, alongside a roster of artists curated by the band. The host cities include Simcoe, Ontario, Troy, OH, Guthrie, OK and St. Augustine, FL. Each stopover will also feature a series of smaller events involving local businesses and venues.

“The ‘Gentlemen of the Road’ Stopovers are all about live music,” Mumford & Sons said in a press release. “We get to put them on in towns not normally frequented by touring bands in busses or splitter vans. We deliberately look for towns that have something unique, or some vibe of which they are proud, explore them and enjoy what they have to offer.”

Tickets to all dates will go on sale at 11 a.m. local time on Friday, Feb. 8. Tickets cost $109 (no additional service fees) and each ticket will include a beautifully designed commemorative “Gentlemen of the Road” Stopover Passport. The stopovers will also feature integrated campsites. Three-night camping passes begin at $40 per person. Tickets and camping passes can be purchased on the band’s website at gentlemenoftheroad.com.
