Following the reveal of a spring tour run, Gov’t Mule has now announced a 12-date summer amphitheater tour. The Dark Side of the Mule Tour, produced by Live Nation, features the return of the GRAMMY-nominated band’s renowned and extremely rare Pink Floyd tribute performance which will follow a full Mule set and very special guest Jason Bonham’s Led Zeppelin Evening opening. Gov’t Mule first debuted Dark Side of the Mule on Halloween 2008 at the Orpheum Theatre in Boston, which was recorded and later released as a live album in 2014. Years after, the band brought back the acclaimed set, a favorite with fans and critics alike, for a handful of shows, performing it only 10 times in total. With 2023 marking the 50th anniversary of Pink Floyd’s Dark Side of the Moon, Gov’t Mule is joining in on the celebration of the legendary album and bringing back Dark Side of the Mule for one final time on this summer’s tour.
“This all started so organically with what we thought would be a one-time Halloween performance,” shares Warren Haynes, Gov’t Mule front man and guitarist. “Since then, Dark Side of the Mule has grown into something else. It’s a blast to perform this material but our intent is to do it for one final tour in celebration of the 50th anniversary of Dark Side. Don’t miss it!”
The Dark Side of the Mule Tour launches July 22nd in Atlantic City, ahead of a performance at the Great South Bay Music Festival in Patchogue, NY, and will stop at Red Rocks Amphitheatre on August 7th and also make its way to Detroit, Indianapolis, Chicago, Dallas, Charlotte, Atlanta, Boston, and more, before wrapping in Holmdel, NJ on August 19th.
