So whether you’re a Gov’t Mule or a Pink Floyd fan, you better secure your passes now before it’s too late!
The members of Gov’t Mule, including the illustrious Warren Hayes, are clearly Pink Floyd fans. The band aims to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Pink Floyd’s most iconic album, Dark Side of the Moon. This summer, they embark on a highly-rare tribute tour to celebrate the music and artistry of Pink Floyd. “This all started so organically with what we thought would be a one-time Halloween performance. Since then, Dark Side of the Mule has grown into something else. It’s a blast to perform this material, but our intent is to do it for one final tour in celebration of the 50th anniversary of Dark Side. Don’t miss it!” Hayes mentioned in a statement.
Gov’t Mule’s first tribute show occurred in 2008 during a three-hour gig in Boston, Massachusetts. The band performance was recorded and later released as a live album in 2014. The title Dark Side of the Mule is a punk on Pink Floyd’s 1973 album, Dark Side of the Moon. Since then, the band has performed a handful of tribute shows throughout their career. But this 2023 summer tour will be their first full-on tribute tour!
