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
of the encore, when Mumford & Sons brought up a crowd member to sing a classic rock
The encore started innocently enough with the now standard cover of Bruce Springsteen's
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:
