It wouldn’t be quite right to end a stadium show on such a note, though, so Mumford & Sons sprinted back on to the main stage for a run-through of the ever-popular “The Cave.” From its unmistakable opening guitar riff, the song elicited screams of delight, and the spirit of excitement never abated. At song’s end, Mumford offered a gracious “thank you” to Boston and both opening acts before leaving the stage.
By the time the lights went up, Mumford & Sons had been playing for about an hour and 40 minutes—shorter, perhaps, than many fans had expected and hoped for. Yet it was hard to find anyone with a bad word to say about the performance itself. They did it right by leaving the crowd wanting more—and considering their steady ascendance in the music industry, it seems sure that Mumford & Sons will continue to deliver more to fans in the years to come.
