Gov’t Mule’s DARK SIDE OF THE MULE & The Avett Brothers will be 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 in Wantagh, NY, this rare and thrilling evening of music produced by Live Nation will also make stops in Holmdel, NJ, Mansfield, MA, Noblesville, IN, Tinley Park, IL and Clarkston, MI. Full routing below. Pre-sale for these dates will begin Tuesday, March 20th at 12pm local time and will go on-sale Friday, March 23rd at 12 local time.
Fans are in store for a mind-blowing night that will bring a full set from The Avett Brothers followed 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.
Out of the more than 2,000 shows Gov’t Mule has played throughout their celebrated 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. For those who can’t catch one of these newly announced summer dates, Gov’t Mule will be bringing their DARK SIDE OF THE MULE set to Peach Fest on July 21st.
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.
