Lollapalooza 2012 (more by James Richards IV)
As we warned you they would, a very limited amount of Lollapalooza 2013 Souvenir Passes (three days for $75) went on sale late this afternoon and were gone within the blink of an eye. Anybody able to purchase them? Early Bird tickets ($200) will go on sale on Tuesday, March 26 at 10AM CST. Once those sell out, regular passes ($235) will be immediately available.
You already know that Phoenix, Vampire Weekend, The Killers, and Mumford & Sons are confirmed for the festival, and that The National and The Postal Service are likely to be on the bill, but who else would you like to see on there? Let us know.
Lollapalooza 2012 (more by James Richards IV)
As discussed, Lollapalooza 2013 is set to take place from August 2-4 in Chicago's Grant Park. While no acts have been revealed yet, MANY are rumored. "Early Bird" three-day passes ($200) for the festival will go on sale next Tuesday (3/26) at 10AM CST. Once those sell out, regular three-day passes ($235) will be immediately available. And as they've done in the past, a secret ticket sale ($75 for a three-day pass!) will be happening sometime this week. We're not quite sure of the date // time of that sale, but last year they sold-out within minutes.

Mumford & Sons @ Coachella 2011 (more by David Andrako)
We are aware that a number of fans have been left disappointed by recent ticketing issues surrounding the WXRT 40th Anniversary Concert the band are due to perform at on 16th August [at The Chicago Theatre]. Aside from the fact that demand for this show has far outweighed ticket supply, it has been brought to our attention that large numbers of tickets have appeared for resale via unauthorised outlets. We would like to make absolutely clear that Mumford & Sons and all members of the team, in no way support nor have any links with such extremely unwelcome activity and continue to explore appropriate solutions to this industry-wide issue.Mumford & Sons played to 15,000 people in Hoboken, NJ last night (talk about "demand outweighing ticket supply" for the considerably smaller Chicago Theatre). As mentioned, the band are also hosting a "Gentlemen of the Road Stopover" in Dixon, IL on August 18.
In this instance, our ticket agents have investigated and recalled tickets from all parties whom they suspect of having purchased solely for the purpose of reselling. As a result we can now put back for sale a limited number of tickets for the show. If you do not already have tickets for the show and you'd like to apply for the ticket lottery please click here for further details (deadline 10am local time Friday August 3rd).
We have also been alerted to the fact that due to an administrative error, an incorrect ticket link was included in a news story on our website. While every effort is made to ensure that the correct information is communicated to fans, on this occasion due to human error, unfortunately one did slip through the net. We sincerely apologise to fans for any confusion this may have caused.
