Mumford & Sons, who were big winners at this year's Grammy Awards, are coming to the Pittsburgh area in August, but you can't just run out and buy tickets.

In an effort to “ensure the real fans get in and the ticket scalpers stay out,” according to the band's new release, those who want to buy tickets must register for the “Invitation Onsale” at invitation.mumfordandsons.com. The lucky ones will then get an email invite.

Registration closes July 3 and invitations will be sent out starting July 8.

The U.K. band will kick off “The Full English Tour” on Aug. 26 in Toronto and will be at First Niagara Pavilion in Burgettstown on Aug. 29. The Vaccines and Bear's Den will open at First Niagara.

Mumford & Sons won the Grammy for album of the year for “Babel” and were nominated for best rock song and best rock performance for the hit “I Will Wait.” The group was forced to postpone three shows earlier this month and cancel its headlining performance at the Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival in Tennessee because bassist Ted Dwane was receiving treatment for a blood clot on his brain.

In a statement on its website, the band says Dwane is making “a steady recovery from his operation and wearing his newly acquired shaven-headed hairstyle with enviable levels of suave.”
