Show Review: Mumford & Sons at LC Pavillion, Columbus 08/14/2012

When you get the opportunity to see a band live who is about to release one of the most anticipated albums of the year, you don’t pass it up.  And you hope they play just enough new material to build the anticipation of the new album, as well as plenty of old songs so you can sing along.  Does that sound like the perfect concert? 

Well, Mumford & Sons did not disappoint.  Playing to an over-packed pavilion in Columbus, Ohio, they showcased their talents in a way that made their studio recorded album bow down to their live show in unworthy shame!  Showcasing their talents as multi-instrumentalists, the band members switched between instruments throughout the show, proving that elaborate stage setups and other "rock show" tropes are not needed to put on a memorable concert.  They introduced new songs from their upcoming album, Babel, due for release on September 25th, with one of them being their newly released single “I Will Wait”.  They also pretty much played their entire debut album Sigh No More.  This is one band worth traveling to go see and if they are playing near you, don’t think about going...just GO!
