The Lumineers, providers of the ubiquitous, clap-happy 2012 hit “Ho, Hey,” could’ve easily been one-hit wonders. The Denver-based outfit came along wearing suspenders and brandishing beat-up acoustic guitars at a time when the Mumford-ification of America was strong, though waning a bit. But the Lumineers had something that most one-hit wonders do not: tons of great songs that are as good if not better than the song that will likely define them for eternity. With the release of the group’s 2016 record, Cleopatra, they chose to stick relatively close to the lane they have driven so well, the one that has afforded the band millions of streams and plenty of sold-out arenas.

The Lumineers tour in support of the new album Cleopatra. After exploding onto the scene with their monster single, "Ho Hey" (which spent a staggering 62 weeks on the Billboard Hot 100, peaking at #3) and its follow-up, "Stubborn Love" (featured on President Barack Obama's Spotify playlist), The Lumineers spent a solid 3 years touring 6 of the 7 continents. During that time, The Lumineers - whose original members Wesley Schultz and Jeremiah Fraites founded the band in Ramsey, N.J., back in 2002 - earned a pair of Grammy nominations (Best New Artist, Best Americana Album), contributed two songs to The Hunger Games franchise (including the hit Jennifer Lawrence/James Newton Howard collaboration, "The Hanging Tree") and sold an impressive 1.7 million albums in the U.S., and 3 million worldwide.
