British Folk Band Mumford & Sons Have Banned Cell Phones From A Concert In Brighton, England On Monday (27apr15) Amid Fears Fans Will Record And Leak Their New Material.
The I Will Wait hitmakers are due to perform hits from all of their albums, including new release Wilder Mind, at the Brighton Dome Corn Exchange, and concertgoers have been asked not to bring any recording devices into the auditorium in a bid to keep the new material under wraps.
A message in their newsletter reads, "As this show is happening pre-album release, the band have requested all mobile phone and recording devices to be prohibited inside the venue."
The note also advised to fans to allow themselves time to check the devices in and out with the security team before and after the show.
Wilder Mind is set for release on 4 May (15).
