Mumford & Sons, Palacio de Vistalegre, Madrid, Spain (March 21th, 2013) – Mp3


First concert of Mumford & Sons in Madrid and the expectations were really high. The show was scheduled to take place at La Riviera (it can hold 2500 people more or less), but due to their success last year and the big demand of ticket the show was moved to the Palacio de Vistalegre (which can hold around 12000 people). So you make an idea that this was the place to be yesterday, and though this surely had a big impact on the promoters and the band it was catastrophic for the concert itself. The post-“Madrid Arena” situation also had its effect in the show and the general admission was half empty… I think this situation will really harm the promoters and less important bands will come to Madrid each time (add the increased VAT for all cultural events [21% now] and it’s a pretty desparing mix up).
