7 October 2016


The London band released a mini-album entitled 'Johannesburg' with touring partners Baaba Maal, Beatenberg and The Very Best during June. The mini-album was recorded over the course of two "all day and all night" sessions in Johannesburg as part of a sizeable South African tour undertaken in January and February of this year.

It has now been announced that the group will premiere new concert film Live From South Africa: Dust And Thunder in select cinemas worldwide from November 8. The film will document the band's gig in Pretoria, South Africa in front of 50,000 fans.

Mumford & Sons say of the news: "This was one of the most exciting shows we played on the Wilder Mind tour. We had just spent the preceding couple of days in a studio in Johannesburg with Baaba Maal, The Very Best and Beatenberg so we couldn't help but get everyone out on stage to play a few of the songs we'd just written."

"It was also our first time playing in South Africa and we never could have anticipated such a welcome. This show marks a really exciting time in the journey we have taken as band. A journey fuelled by a desire to explore the world and the connection between the communities of musicians who continue to make it feel like a smaller and smaller place."

Tickets are available for pre-sale on the band's official website.
