New tickets for Mumford & Sons available


There is new life for those hoping to see Mumford & Sons belt out “I Will Wait” in Troy later this month.

Concert organizers will release a new batch of tickets for the previously sold-out Gentlemen of the Road stopover tour on Aug. 30 and 31.

The $109 tickets will go on sale 10 a.m. Friday at www.gentlemenoftheroad.com.

Tickets have no additional service fees or charges, according to a news release.

About 2,500 new tickets will be sold.

It’s probably best that you act fast if you want to attend.

Tickets took mere hours to sell out in February, making the English folk rock band’s two-day festival one of the hottest shows in the region this summer.

Each ticket will include a commemorative “Gentlemen of the Road Stopover” passport.

Three-night camping passes start at $40 per person and can be purchased along with tickets.

The festival is expected to draw 30,000 concertgoers to Troy on Aug. 30 and 36,000 on Aug. 31.

Here’s more on the lineup from the news release:

The Friday night concert will feature Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros, Phosphorescent, Willy Mason and Half Moon Run. Mumford & Sons will headline the all-day Saturday show, alongside a range of artists including Old Crow Medicine Show, The Vaccines, Justin Townes Earle, Rubblebucket, Those Darlins, Bear’s Den and Yacht Club DJs. A series of smaller events involving local businesses and venues will happen in and around the town.

The show is expected to have a $12.6 million economic impact on the region.
