Chicago, IL – Mumford & Sons has been touring the US, but the entire band recently contracted the flu. In an effort to stabilize the tour, Mumford & Sons’ manager secretly contacted Rend Collective to cover a week of dates.
Their first big show in Chicago was well received. Exiting the venue, a fan said, “What do you mean they weren’t here. That was the band. I just saw and heard them. It was an amazing show.”
The Chicago Tribune praised the performance: “Their new song ‘Build Your Kingdom Here’ was excellent. It felt like we were having church. It was a communal experience.”
