Quickly graduating from the Denver open-mic circuit to cavernous theaters and arenas around the world—thanks to the success of inescapable folk-rock ballad "Ho Hey"—the Lumineers could have easily followed in the footsteps of Mumford & Sons and started aping U2. Instead, the group has kept its acoustic instrumentation and foot-stomping rhythms intact, penning an album (2019's III) that examines a fictional family's struggle with addiction. Joined by L.A. folk-rocker Mt. Joy and Kenyan singer-songwriter J.S. Ondara, the Lumineers headline two nights at Allstate Arena on the band's latest world tour.
