Jam stalwarts Gov’t Mule have announced a short Spring Tour. The run begins with the band’s appearance at this year’s Wanee Music Festival and lead up to Gov’t Mule’s traditional New Orleans show during Jazz Fest.
After Warren Haynes & Co. perform at Wanee, they will head to the Peace Center Concert Hall in Greenville, South Carolina on April 23. Gov’t Mule continue on for shows in Huntsville, Memphis and Mobile. The tour is currently slated to end at the Saenger Theatre in New Orleans on April 28, with Soulive set to open. Haynes recently revealed to Jambands.com that Mule is almost finished with their 10th studio album and it may be released as soon as May. He also made it clear his focus will be on Mule after the album comes out. “So once that’s out, we’ll be touring with Gov’t Mule for the next year, year and a half or so. We’ll be going to Europe and Japan and all over the world to spread the word. Of course, there’s always other projects going on, but that will be the main focus for me from that time forward,” Warren said.
Pre-sales for the newly announced dates will start Wednesday, January 11 at 12 p.m. ET. Tickets will go up for grabs to the general public on Friday, January 13.
