Mumford and Sons, Lee’s Palace Toronto

mumford and sons

Ok who knew these guys had such a following in Toronto? Not I. Originally scheduled to play El Momcambo, Mumford & Son’s were upgraded to a larger venue and played a sold out show at Lee’s Palace this past Monday.

People in Canada seem to arrive on time for gigs – as when I stepped foot inside Lee’s Palace just 20mins after the doors opened the place was already full. Mumford & Sons put on an amazing live show. Their album doesn’t actually do them justice, I’ve had it for awhile and it’s great but I was only blown away by a couple of songs. Different story when seeing these guys live, they’ve got their set down to a tee.

The band played the majority of tracks from Sigh No More, stand out for me was Little Lion Man, which they surprisingly played 3 songs in. I attempted to video it but scrapped that plan as I was having way to much fun. We also got treated to a couple of new songs – which saw them change things up a little with Marcus playing an electric guitar instead of acoustic – the songs were good but lets hope they don’t stray away too much from what makes them stand out.

Mumford & Sons = great live band, flawless four part harmonies, and charisma to boot. If you have yet to see them live, get on it.
