Face it, things haven’t been the same at the outdoor amphitheater known as Sandstone since Live Nation pulled the plug several years back and the title sponsor went from powerhouse Verizon to relatively puny Cricket.
Must see alt rock shows: Remember The Killers in May 2009?
That’s the last one I recall knocking my socks off.
That’s because the venue operated by KC promoter deity Chris Fritz just landed Mumford & Sons.
The 7 p.m. show goes down Monday June 17th.
Unfortunately the dates didn’t quite match up with Kanrocksas (June 28 and 29), which sources say could use a boost.
Now the fun part.
Tickets for Mumford & Sons go on sale at 11 a.m. April 2nd and continue until 2 p.m. on April 4.
So you know, write that on your hand so you don’t forget and miss out.
TICKETS FOR MUMFORD & SONS ARE BY INVITATION ONLY.
An “Invitation Onsale” will begin on Monday, March 25 at invitation.mumfordandsons.com. So concertgoers will have to register for an invitation to purchase early tickets for the show.
The end game being that the band wants to give as many people as possible an equal chance to buy tickets and to try and get the tickets into the hands of fans as opposed to scalpers.
Lucky invitees will have an opportunity to buy up to four tickets starting Tuesday, April 2nd.
Again, for further instructions or more information, check out invitation.mumfordandsons.com.
