August 8th 2012
I’m a big fan of cool packaging whether it be boxes, labels or concert tickets. Mumford & Sons have a beautifully-designed commemorative passport concert ticket. On Saturday August 11th, 2012 Mumford & Sons stop in Bristol, TN/VA for their Gentlemen of the Road Stopover tour along with Dawes, JEFF The Brotherhood, The Very Best, Apache Relay, Simone Felice, Justin Townes Earl, and Haim.
This very cool passport ticket has an etched cover featuring the year and a turn of the century gentleman with two pistols. Open it up to discover the rules, a list of the bands playing and a bonus to the ticket holder. Flip the page to see where all seven concerts are being played. There are four in the USA, one in Britain, one in Ireland and one in Australia. Flip the page again to see a lenticular festival pass. Flip the page again and there are a few pages to collect stamps.
$1 from each Bristol Stopover ticket will be donated to support the development of the Birthplace of Country Music Alliance Cultural Heritage Center, a Smithsonian Institute experience that tells the story of Bristol’s musical heritage.
