Mumford & Sons plays Amalie Arena in Tampa, Florida on September 20, 2017.

Mumford & Sons made its Tampa debut last night at Amalie Arena, and weaved together an 18-song set our reviewer described like this:

The show also got a major boost from extra instrumentation (fiddle, a two-part horn section, keys), but the biggest lift came from Mumford, just 30 years old, who more than knows his way around the stage and drum kit (as evidenced by a fine performance on the skins for “Dust Bowl Dance” and Babel-era “Lover of the Light”). He even took a lap around the lower bowl of Amalie for a take on “Ditmas.” The track — a phoned-in moment on the band’s latest studio effort, Wilder Mind — could’ve been a lull in an otherwise energetic 18-song set, but that athletic move (it’s tough to get around the arena, up and down steps like that so quickly) was more than enough to keep things rolling into an encore that included a new song (“If I Say”) and crowd-favorite “The Wolf.”
