Renowned GRAMMY-nominated quartet Gov’t Mule – led by GRAMMY® Award-winning vocalist, songwriter, guitar legend, and producer Warren Haynes – are bringing their Dark Side of the Mule Tour to Detroit on Wednesday, August 2 at Pine Knob Music Theatre with very special guest Jason Bonham’s Led Zeppelin Evening opening in support of the band’s new studio album, Peace…Like A River, just released June 16th. The upcoming 18-date summer outing, produced by Live Nation, features the return of their extremely rare Pink Floyd tribute, which will follow a full Mule set and mark the final time they’ll perform the acclaimed set. 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.

Peace…Like A River (Fantasy Records), the band’s 12th studio album and follow-up to Gov’t Mule’s chart-topping, Grammy-nominated blues album, Heavy Load Blues, includes the stirring lead single “Dreaming Out Loud” featuring Ivan Neville and Ruthie Foster, currently impacting Triple A radio nationwide. For the track, Haynes wove together inspirational quotes from Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., Robert and John Kennedy, and the late civil rights leader and U.S. Representative John Lewis. Elsewhere on Peace…Like A River is the soaring and heartfelt “Same As It Ever Was” and the epic, Beatles-inspired new single “Made My Peace.” The 12-song rock collection, already being hailed as “perfection” and “captivating,” also features guest appearances from Billy Bob Thornton, who adds his distinctive vocals to “The River Only Flows One Way,” rising soul artist Celisse on “Just Across The River,” and Billy F Gibbons, whose trademark vocals underscore the tasty ZZ Top textures that inform the humor-infused “Shake Our Way Out.” In addition to various vinyl options, Peace…Like A River is also available with a Deluxe Edition (on CD only) that includes 5 additional tracks.
