Ticket Demand For Mumford And Sons And Rolling Stones Doubles Post Glastonbury

Following their headline performances at this year’s Glastonbury festival, The Rolling Stones and Mumford and Sons have both seen ticket demand almost double, despite splitting opinions, according to online ticket marketplace Seatwave.

The Rolling Stones and Mumford and Sons currently have fans scrambling for tickets following their weekend performances, despite critics suggesting that The Stones were too old and that Mumford and Sons were not big enough for headline slots at the UK’s biggest musical festival. Both bands have defied the naysayers, as rising demand suggests the bands’ Glastonbury performances may have won them legions of new fans.

Louise Mullock, spokesperson for Seatwave, said: ‘Although opinions were mixed following the performances of the two headliners, we are now experiencing increased ticket demand for both acts. It may be a generational thing, with the youngsters opting for the Mumfords, whilst our mature customers seek satisfaction from Messrs Jagger and Richards. Either way, both bands have benefited dramatically following their weekend performances.’
