TVD Ticket Giveaway: The Lumineers at D.A.R. Constitution Hall, 1/30

From emerging into mainstream radio to getting nominated for two Grammy awards, it’s safe to say that 2012 was the year for The Lumineers. 2013 looks just as promising for the folk band. With a sold-out tour, the band has started the new year right. 

The Lumineers were founded in 2005 by front man Wesley Schultz and drummer Jeremiah Fraites. Grief-stricken by the loss of close friend and brother Joshua Fraites, the band served as a way of coping. With a move to Denver and the addition of cellist Neyla Pekarek, The Lumineers gained a following, and so much more, with their hit single, “Ho Hey.”

Seeing the high demand for tickets, The Lumineers recently added another date to their tour. On January 30, the band will be playing at D.A.R. Constitution Hall… and we’re giving away a pair of tickets before they even go on sale!

Following the success of their single “Ho Hey,” the band released their debut self-titled full-length on April 3, 2012., which peaked at No. 11 on the Billboard 200.

“Born out of sorrow, powered by passion, ripened by hard work, The Lumineers have found their sound when the world needs it most.”

The band formed as a form of solace amidst tragedy. The name “lumineers” even implies light in the darkness. To win your pair of tickets to see the Grammy-nominated band before they go on sale, drop a comment below naming a song you turn to during dark times. My go-to song would have to be “Beside You” by Marianas Trench.

The winner will be chosen on Friday, January 4, at 9 a.m. If you don’t win them from us, be sure to pick up your tickets when they do go on sale this Friday, January 4, at 10 am.

    Stubborn Love actually helped me a lot this year. My friend’s mom passed away this year around the time I first heard it and it bothered me so much he way alone trying to cope with his loss. It’s true: “it’s better to feel pain than nothing at all.”

    “The Twist” by Frightened Rabbit. But, to be fair it’s not just where I turn in the dark times, it’s where I go to celebrate the good too. That way when times are hard and dour, I think back to when I listened to this and other songs in celebration and remember good times mustn’t be too far off.

    So who is it?  I think it’s shady when the person isnt announced.  Especially given the bullshit ticket sale catastrophe with this show.

  • jckozzie

    How is the 2013 Tour sold out already, but the tickets haven’t even gone on sale in some places? Also, why can’t the winner be posted with their song so we can congratulate them, and listen to their song?
