Tickets went on sale Friday, Feb. 8 for the “Gentlemen of the Road” Stopover Show scheduled Sept. 7-8 in Guthrie.

Mumford & Sons released the details of the 2013 series that will go into England, the U.S. and Canada. The stopovers have been expanded to a two-day affair with a Friday night concert followed by the all-day Saturday event.

Each Stopover combines the intimacy of a community celebration with the excitement of a world-class music festival.

Mumford & Sons will headline the Saturday show, alongside an eclectic and energetic roster of artists. A series of smaller events involving local businesses, venues, and, most importantly, local people will happen in and around the town.

“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,” tour organizers said.

Like last year, the outdoor events will take place in carefully selected and unique locations across the United States and Canada following a stop in the UK, and will feature a host of internationally acclaimed acts including Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros, The Alabama Shakes, The Vaccines, and many more to be announced.

This year’s host towns include Simcoe, Ontario, Troy, OH; Guthrie, OK; and St. Augustine, FL. In 2012, the band made seven stopovers: four in the United States, two in the UK, and one in Australia.

The tickets are $109, and will have no additional service fees or hidden charges. Each ticket will include a beautifully-designed, commemorative Gentlemen of the Road Stopover Passport. Campsites are incorporated into each Stopover site, and camping has become an essential part of the Stopover experience and is strongly encouraged.

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