Warren Haynes announced via social media that Gov’t Mule‘s spring tour, which was scheduled to commence on April 6th, has been postponed due to a shoulder injury he suffered while on vacation with his family in Costa Rica this past weekend. The lead guitarist and singer explained that he fractured his scapula after slipping on a wet surface and landing on his shoulder.

“I’m truly heartbroken and so very sorry that this happened,” Haynes wrote in the post. “I don’t think anyone was more excited to get back out on the road than I was. We’re working to reschedule these tour dates and will have updates as soon as possible. The doctors are confident that my shoulder will be healed in time for Mule to hit the road this summer, as planned.”

A statement from SweetWater on Wednesday noted that “The festival will announce a replacement as soon as possible.”
