Gov’t Mule will celebrate the 50th anniversary of The Dark Side of the Moon with 13 shows featuring a special Pink Floyd tribute set. The band has added 12 new summer tour dates, which will follow its previously announced spring tour and feature support from Jason Bonham’s Led Zeppelin Evening.
Gov’t Mule originally debuted Dark Side of the Mule on Halloween in 2008 at the Orpheum Theatre in Boston. The performance was recorded and later released as a live album in 2014. The band reprised its Pink Floyd tribute years later, performing it a total of ten times. Now Gov’t Mule will visit The Dark Side of the Moon one last time in honor of the iconic album’s 50th anniversary.
“This all started so organically with what we thought would be a one-time Halloween performance,” said frontman Warren Haynes. “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!”
