Cover Alert | Mumford And Sons Cover You Shook Me All Night Long

Last night marked the first show of Mumford & Sons' Full English Tour as the British megastars performed before a capacity crowd at the Molson Amphitheatre in Toronto. Marcus Mumford and Co. delivered a 19-song show that contained a fairly equal mix of material from 2010's Sigh No More and 2012's Babel. The biggest surprise of the night came towards the end of the encore, when Mumford & Sons brought up a crowd member to sing a classic rock staple.

The encore started innocently enough with the now standard cover of Bruce Springsteen's "I'm On Fire" and Babel track "Reminder." Marcus then welcomed guitarist Freddie Cowan from opening act The Vaccines who along with Mumford & Sons's Winston Marshall lit into the familiar lick that starts AC/DC's signature 1980 hit "You Shook Me All Night Long." Marcus Mumford, who played drums on the cover, asked if anyone knew the words to the song and eventually found an audience member he believed in to lead the group through a rough but fun take on the Back In Black smash.

Watch how it all went down:
