49 and 48 years ago to the day, The Beatles and Bob Dylan respectively, played Forest Hills Stadium on site of the West Side Tennis Club.  After 16 years sitting idly, Mumford and Sons breathed new life into the venue on August 28.  Having never been to this venue, and knowing the history, I made sure to cover this, and what a venue it is.  16,000 + people packed into the place and Mumford and Sons gave them a great 2 hour set.

Mumford was set back on the stage a bit and lighting was great from behind and directly overhead.  The band lines up across the front of the stage so its either cluttered or you need to isolate the performers which goes against my typical style.
