I wasn't a huge fan of the opening bands but Mother Nature made the wait worthwhile. This was the view from the venue. She was definitely showing off that night.
After what seemed like forever Mumford and Sons took the stage. The entire crowd of 3,500 people was on their feet and the air felt electric. I'm always a little bit nervous to see a band live for the first time. I'm afraid they won't be as amazing live as they are on their albums. With Mumford and Sons my worries were in vain. I was blown away!! These guys are phenomenal live!!! There were several times that I found myself simply standing and staring at them on the stage. I was in awe.
Marcus Mumford is a master storyteller. He and the rest of the band weave a tale that leaves the audience mesmerized. I can not put into words how unbelievably amazing they are.
There isn't a lot of video from the show but I did find one of The Cave that kind of shows how good they were. I don't think it's possible to really capture the live experience.
This picture amused me because it shows all the phones and cameras in the crowd.
