NEW YORK (August 29, 2013)--Mumford & Sons have played the first concert at the Forest Hills stadium in Queens in more than 20 years.
The venue once hosted acts from Jimi Hendrix to the Rolling Stones.
The Grammy-winning British rockers performed a sold-out concert Wednesday for 16,000 fans at the stadium's West Side Tennis Club, which hosted the U.S. Open until 1978.
The foursome even played tennis onstage, using a racket at times, and a guitar and banjo at others.
They also threw balls to fans in the crowd.
Mumford & Sons electrified the crowd, even when it rained lightly, playing the well-known rock hits "Little Lion Man," ''I Will Wait" and "The Cave," as well as other songs from their two multiplatinum albums.
