Gov’t Mule is currently in the midst of the European leg of the band’s summer tour, with just three dates left before returning to the States. After performing in Italy, Germany, Switzerland, Finland, Sweden, and Norway, the Warren Haynes-led outfit stopped at Batschkapp in Frankfurt, Germany on Wednesday.

The European leg of Gov’t Mule’s summer tour kicked off on July 10th in Chiari, Italy, where the band was joined by special guest guitarist David Grissom, best known for his work with John Mellencamp. Following shows in Tuttlingen, Germany; Zurich, Switzerland; and Pori, Finland, the group welcomed frequent collaborator Hook Herrera, who sat in on a few songs in Uppsala, Sweden and Oslo, Norway.

After an additional show in Norway at Moldejazz in Molde, Gov’t Mule arrived at Batschkapp in Frankfurt on Wednesday, July 20th. The band played a setlist featuring a mix of Mule staples and songs from its recent blues album, Heavy Load Blues, including a “Snatch It Back And Hold It” > “Hold It Back” > “Snatch It Back And Hold It” medley, “Make It Rain”, “If Heartaches Were Nickels, and “I Asked For Water (She Gave Me Gasoline)”.

The tour continues tonight, July 21st in Amsterdam, Netherlands, and will wrap up with two shows in Germany—Torgau on the 22nd and Winterbach on the 23rd.
