Gov’t Mule Kicks Off Tour In Salt Lake City

Jam quartet Gov’t Mule began a fall tour on Thursday night at Red Butte Garden in Salt Lake City. After a summer filled with opening acts in which Mule played one long set, Thursday’s concert featured two sets.

Warren Haynes & Co. bookended the night with songs from the recently released Revolution Come…Revolution Go. Gov’t Mule opened with “Traveling Tune” and concluded the show with “Dark Was The Night, Cold Was The Ground.” Along the way the foursome delivered a career-spanning batch of originals along with a handful of varied covers. There was also more from the new LP including “Sarah, Surrender” and “Stone Cold Rage.” Pink Floyd’s “One Of These Days” and “Fearless” were among the covers played. Mule ended the night with John Lennon’s “Working Class Hero” ahead of the previously mentioned “Dark Was The Night, Cold Was The Ground.”
