Mark Hoppus Joins Mumford and Sons on Stage

So what happens when you combine a folk band, one-third of a pop-punk band, and an 80s staple? One collaboration that, in a way, works.

During their show last night (Aug. 18) at the Forum in Inglewood, CA, Mumford and Sons brought Blink-182’s Mark Hoppus on stage to join them for a cover of the Eurythmics’ “Sweet Dreams.” But Hoppus wasn’t the only one putting his hat in the ring for this version of the song; Mumford’s tour mates Jack Garratt and the Vaccines joined in on the performance as well.

Watch some videos from the show below.

As it turns out, it isn’t the first time the United Kingdom band covered the 1983 song. They debuted their version of the song back in late July while performing at BBC’s Maida Vale Session, but recently, they added to their touring setlist.

Mumford and Sons is just about to wrap up their summer festival tour which they embarked on in support of their recently released album, Wilder Mind. Their next stop will be at the Gentlemen of the Road festival in Salida, CO this upcoming weekend (Aug. 31-22).
