Last night, Gov’t Mule and guitarist John Scofield continued their Sco-Mule Tour in front of a capacity crowd at the Ogden Theatre in Denver. Mule and their guest continued to unveil new material they hadn’t performed yet on the now week-old tour.

As has been the norm this tour, Gov’t Mule started off the show by themselves for a series of originals before welcoming Scofield to the stage. The guitarist emerged in the middle of the first set for the tour’s first cover of “You Can’t Always Get What You Want” by The Rolling Stones. Scofield stuck around for the end of the first set which featured renditions of “Night Time Is The Right Time” (Roosevelt Sykes), “Instrumental Illness” (Allman Brothers Band) and “Freeway Jam” (Jeff Beck).

The second set also started Sco-less until the guitarist came out towards the end of “King’s Highway.” Scofield also contributed to “Hottentot,” “Tom Thumb” and a cover of Little Feat’s “Spanish Moon” during the closing stanza. John also helped out on an encore of John Lennon’s “Working Class Hero.” Sco-Mule Tour continues tomorrow night in Minneapolis.
