NEW YORK (AP) — Mumford & Sons has played the first concert at the Forest Hills stadium in Queens — which once hosted acts from Jimi Hendrix to the Rolling Stones — in more than 20 years.

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 band even showed some athleticism: The foursome 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.
