During Mumford & Sons' set at the iHeartRadio Music Festival, they said the event boasted the "most eclectic lineup of musicians" and they "never thought [they] would be lucky enough to share a line-up with." Not only we're they on the bill with the likes of Miley Cyrus, Def Leppard, Chance The Rapper and Marshmello, but with their incredible performance, they turned those artists' fans into their own.
The group, which was nine members strong, kicked off their set with "Guiding Light" off their latest album, Delta, then moved their instruments to the front of the stage's catwalk and played a rousing rendition of "The Cave."
Next they transitioned into a new song called "Blind Leading The Blind." Hardcore fans know the group has been playing the track live for a few years, but it was new to the new fans, and for everyone in the venue, it marked another killer performance.
Next up was Mumford's biggest hit, "I Will Wait," and it brought the house down. They closed out with "The Wolf," and by the time the band left the stage, they had thousands of new fans.
You can see their epic performance when the iHeartRadio Music Festival airs on The CW Network at 8 p.m. ET/PT on October 2nd and 3rd. And leading up to the official television special, The CW will also air an hour-long Best Of Special on Sunday, September 29th at 8 p.m. ET/PT taking a look back on all of the most iconic moments from the festival in its nine year history.
