The last time we gave away tickets to The Lumineers a few weeks ago, we had 200 entries but only 1 winner. Good thing they’ve just announced a date at MPP, so that we can give you all one more shot to win.—Ed.
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.”
On July 26, the band will be playing at Merriweather Post Pavilion… and we’re giving away a pair of lawn 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.”
There isn’t a music listener today who doesn’t know the chorus of The Lumineers’ song, “Ho Hey.” It’s just that catchy. To win your tickets to see the band this summer, July 26, at Merriweather Post Pavilion, leave a comment below naming a song AND its lyrics that are infectiously catchy. Currently, I can’t get the chorus of “Thrift Shop” by Macklemore out of my head:
I’m gonna pop some tags
I only got twenty dollars in my pocket
Lookin’ for a come up
This is freakin’ awesome
The winner will be chosen on Friday, February 1, at 9am. If you don’t win them from us, be sure to pick up your tickets when they do go on sale this Friday, February 1, at 10am.
