Of the more than 2,000 shows Gov’t Mule has played throughout their career, there have only been two previous DARK SIDE OF THE MULE performances – Halloween 2008 at the Orpheum Theatre in Boston, MA (where the band’s 2014 Dark Side of the Mule live album was recorded) and Mountain Jam 2015, until now.
Gov’t Mule’s DARK SIDE OF THE MULE & The Avett Brothers are joining forces for a run of six summer co-headlining amphitheater shows with special guest The Magpie Salute. Kicking off July 12 at Northwell Health at Jones Beach Theater.
The Avett Brothers will perform firstfollowed by Gov’t Mule which will morph into DARK SIDE OF THE MULE, an audio and visual spectacular which will see Gov’t Mule performing some of Pink Floyd’s most iconic and beloved songs. For these shows, Gov’t Mule, along with several special guest musicians, will present their most ambitious and advanced live production and light show yet, befitting the incredible music of Pink Floyd.
Special guest The Magpie Salute will open all dates. These shows will reunite Warren Haynes and Matt Abts with Rich Robinson and Marc Ford of The Magpie Salute, who last toured together when Gov’t Mule toured with The Black Crowes in 1994.
