Mumford and Sons were joined by Mark Hoppus of Blink-182 and The Vaccines for a live cover of the Eurythmics ‘Sweet Dreams (Are Made Of This)’ in California last night (August 18).
The band were performing in Inglewood at The Forum when they covered the song, which has become a staple of their live set since it was first debuted at a Maida Vale session in July. Support acts The Vaccines and Jack Garratt were on stage to play the song, as too was bass player Hoppus.

The band have one date left on their US tour, a Gentlemen of the Road Stopover gig in Colorado on August 22. After that, the band will headline Reading & Leeds Festival between August 28-29.
Meanwhile, it was recently reported that Marcus Mumford has been making hip-hop music with producer 88-Keys.
The producer told NME: “I got an email from a really good friend of mine called Izzy [Izvor Zivkovic], who also manages my best friend Kanye West. He told me Marcus [Mumford] is part of the band Mumford & Sons. I’ve always seen their name around but I’ve never actually listened to any of their music, only because I’m really tuned out of pretty much anything current, music wise.”
The British band released ‘Wilder Mind’ in May, topping both the UK and US Album Charts. Partly recorded with The National‘s Aaron Dessner, the LP saw a departure from the band’s signature acoustic sound, with their use of banjos replaced with more electric guitar.
