AceShowbiz - Mumford & Sons turned a video shoot into an impromptu concert for fans in London on Friday, September 21.
The bandmates, who announced the release of their upcoming fourth album, "Delta", earlier this week (begin September 17), invited 150 devotees to join them while they were filming the promo for their new song, "Guiding Light", which was released on Thursday outside the Tate Modern gallery - and they wowed them with a hits-laced set.

Another fan added: "And further further proof of how weird today is: on way alongside Southbank, I got to see Mumford & Sons do an impromptu gig outside Tate?!"
And one young fan will have an epic first-concert memory - her mother or father tweeted: "Eleanor's first concert. We stumbled upon a Mumford and Son's taping on Southbank."
A publicist for Mumford & Sons reveals the band randomly selected 150 fans from a mailing list and invited them to London to feature in their video for "Guiding Light".
The band met with all the fans and taught them the lyrics to the new song before shooting the video.
