March 2015
Mumford & Sons are coming to Walla Walla!

August 14 & 15, 2015          

 

Mumford and Sons, an internationally popular and Grammy award winning British folk rock band, has selected Walla Walla, Washington as one of their 2015 Gentlemen of the Road (GOTR) Stopovers in the United States.

About this year's upcoming Stopover tour, Mumford & Sons says, "The Gentlemen of the Road Stopovers are all about live music. 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."

 

The four outdoor Stopovers will take place in carefully-selected and unique locations across America including Salida, Colorado; Waverly, Iowa; Seaside Heights, New Jersey; and Walla Walla, Washington.

 

Walla Walla was attractive to the band and concert producers due to its vibrant, picturesque and historic downtown; the scenic Walla Walla Valley; the proximity to park space and camping; the warm and comfortable summer weather; and performing venue options.

The Walla Walla GOTR Stopover will begin with a performance on Friday evening, August 14th featuring the Foo Fighters. A daylong festival of music will continue on Saturday, August 15 with the sounds of The Flaming Lips and more. Mumford & Sons will perform on Saturday evening.

Tickets to the two-day Stopovers will be $199, with no additional service fees or hidden charges. Tickets for all Stopovers will be available at gentlemenoftheroad.com beginning on Friday, March 6th at 10:00am.

 

A limited number of Walla Walla Stopover tickets will be sold to the local community at our Visitor Center located at 26 E. Main Street beginning on Friday, 3/6 from 10-5pm, and on Saturday and Sunday, 3/7 & 3/8, from 9-5pm. Ticket purchases will be limited to six per person.  We will accept credit card purchases only.
