Gov’t Mule has hinted at an Abbey Road theme for the band’s upcoming New Year’s Eve show at The Beacon Theatre in New York City next week.
A post shared onto the band’s social media pages on Friday features four mules dressed in The Beatles‘ iconic outfits from the album’s famous cover while walking through the crosswalk outside EMI studios. The tribute would be the band and their fan’s last chance to partake the album’s ongoing 50th-anniversary celebrations in 2019.
It should be noted that this won’t be Mule’s first foray into the Fab Four’s iconic second-to-last studio album, as they have covered numerous Abbey Road songs during live performances over the years, including “I Want You (She’s So Heavy)” and “The End”. Some fans may remember when the band also covered “She Came Through The Bathroom Window” during their set at Mountain Jam VIII earlier this decade.

Gov’t Mule’s 2019 New Year’s Eve run consists of four shows in five nights beginning at The Met in Philadelphia, PA on December 27th followed by the Palace Theater in Waterbury, CT on December 28th. From there, Mule will return to their New Year’s home in New York City’s Beacon Theatre for two nights of shows on December 30th-31st.
At the moment, it’s unclear from the social media post as to whether a possible Abbey Road theme will only apply to the New Year’s Eve show or the entire run. Tickets are available here.
