Mumford & Sons set to rock Holland Park

Thursday, May 23rd, 2013

So far, so good. If the press they’ve been getting following their two kickoff concerts is any indications, celebrated folk-rockers Mumford & Sons are ready for the big venues of their North American tour.

Mumford & Sons began their sold-out tour this week in Alberta with shows in Calgary and Edmonton, and did not disappoint the crowds. Reviews by the Calgary Herald and Edmonton Journal praised the band’s energetic, yet unflashy performance. Say what you will about the resurgence of folk-rock bands in recent years, but Mumford & Sons are living up to the hype and love that the press and fans have been showering them with.

Their next stop – Friday night at Surrey’s Holland Park – is their biggest venue yet with 25,000 concert-goers expected to show up in front of the outdoor stage. Friday’s weather forecast appears to be holding up, and the stage is now up. It’s the biggest outdoor concert the city has seen since Lollapalooza in Cloverdale in ’94, but organizers say they are ready for any security or crowd-control issues.
