In case you didn’t know, Mumford & Sons will be touring South Africa in 2016. In case you also didn’t know, the tickets were sold out in a matter of minutes. Hipsters and folky people were left in a sad state… that is until now. British rock group Mumford & Sons are pleased to announce that they will be releasing a number of tickets for each of their first ever South African live performances next year. Fans are able to register for the remaining tickets via a ballot this week. The band, arguably one of the most exciting live acts of their generation, broke all South African ticketing records back in September when they announced six shows for 2016 and sold out all 85,000 tickets in minutes. They are now offering the opportunity for all ticket-less fans to register via Plankton.mobi from the 8th December, to be in with an opportunity to purchase official tickets, at face value to the show of their choice. It gives disappointed fans another, final chance to gain entry to some of the most highly anticipated live shows in this country for years. In association with Gentlemen of the Road and Hilltop Live, South African Mumford & Sons fans can register for their chance to buy face value tickets via Planton.mobi between 8th and 13th December. By registering, everyone has a fair chance to get hold of these remaining tickets. On Monday 14th December, a generator will randomly draw out registered users, and these users will be able to purchase tickets to the show of their choice. For fans who aren’t randomly drawn from the generator, they will still stand a chance of being drawn to win a selection of amazing hampers of merchandise and albums from Universal Music South Africa, that includes the new Mumford & Sons album, ‘Wilder Mind’ For more information on the sign up please head to Mumford & Sons or Gentleman of the Road.
