Watch fan-shot video of Mule debuting “Ain’t That A Shame” captured by snib98:
Gov’t Mule continued their European Tour on Thursday night with a show at the O2 Ritz in Manchester, England. The evening ended with the quartet paying tribute to rock ‘n’ roll pioneer Fats Domino who passed away earlier this week at the age of 89.
Guitarist Warren Haynes initiated the concert with an opening take on “World Boss.” The first set also saw a rendition of Mule’s “Game Face” that contained a performance of The Allman Brothers Band’s “Mountain Jam.” Several songs from the band’s recent studio album Revolution Come … Revolution Go made it into the first set including “Stone Cold Rage,” “Drawn That Way” and the title track which served as the closer.
Haynes and the band returned for a second set that opened with David Gray’s “My Oh My.” Mule recorded a cover of the English singer-songwriter’s tune for 2005’s Mo’ Voodoo EP and had last performed “My Oh My” live on August 1, 2006. Set two progressed with “Larger Than Life” fitting in Jimi Hendrix’s “If 6 Were 9,” followed by “Trane” and a rendition of “Beautifully Broken” that worked in Tom Petty’s “Breakdown” before coming back to end “Trane.” A sequence made up of “The Man I Want To Be,” followed by “Mule” with Bo Diddley’s “Who Do You Love?” played within, and “Soulshine” rounded out the set. The encore was Gov’t Mule’s tribute to Fats Domino in the form of their debut offering of his 1955 hit “Ain’t That A Shame.”
Gov’t Mule performs again tonight at TramShed Cardiff in Cardiff, Wales.
