A Message From Wes
This is Wesley speaking, on behalf of The Lumineers.
I’d like to thank you for joining our new fan club. It’s a wild thing, to have something like this – a dream come true, in fact. I’ve always admired bands who build an honest and authentic relationship with their fans. When I was a kid, I remember my uncle taking me to a Pearl Jam show, and he was in their fan club, the “Ten Club” – it was a wonderful thing – the members of this fan club had earlier access to shows, a heads up on secret shows, exclusive merch – all sorts of things that rewarded the fans who had been there the longest. I’d like to try to do that in our own way.
With all the social media and over-sharing of our personal lives, I think it’s hard for a band like us to let anybody into our world. And compared with pop-stars, we’ll keep our distance a bit more. But we are doing this because we want to have a relationship with the people who have been fans of us as we go forward, and we’d like to do our best to reward you – through making it easier to get tickets to our shows and a look into what we’re doing that we keep private from most. We’re honored you’ve joined, and I just want to thank you so much for being a part of this Big Parade. We’ll see you soon.
