Gov’t Mule with The Avett Brothers :: 7.12.18
Northwell Health At Jones Beach Theater :: Wantagh, NY

Gov’t Mule kicked off a series of co-headlining shows with The Avett Brothers at Northwell Health At Jones Beach Theater in Wantagh, New York on Thursday night. The Magpie Salute has been tapped to open all six concerts. Warren Haynes & Co. presented a guest-filled Dark Side Of The Mule tribute to Pink Floyd as part of their lone set.

The quartet took the stage alone to open their set with the classic “Mule” and the title track from 2017’s Revolution Come…Revolution Go. Gov’t Mule then brought out multi-instrumentalist Torbjörn “T-Bone” Andersson and vocalists Machan Taylor, Mini Carlsson and Sophia Ramos for portions of the Dark Side Of The Mule performance. The augmented band was also joined by saxophonist Ron Holloway at points of the set. Dark Side Of The Mule began with “Shine On Your Crazy Diamond (Parts I – V),” “Have A Cigar” and “Speak To Me” all featuring Holloway. Haynes then led the troupe through “Breathe” and “On The Run.”

Scott Avett and Seth Avett emerged for “Time.” Mule then covered “The Great Gig In The Sky” before bringing out Marc Ford and John Hogg of The Magpie Salute for their debut cover of “The Nile Song” off Pink Floyd’s More album. Next, Holloway returned for “Money,” “Us & Them” and “Any Colour You Like.” Then, The Magpie Salute’s Rich Robinson joined in for “Fearless” ahead of the “Comfortably Numb” set closer. Gov’t Mule went on to encore with “Wish You Were Here.” Photographer Adam McCullough was on hand. Check out his work below along with fan-shot videos:
