Gov’t Mule Welcomes Jimmy Vivino, Oz Noy, & More At The Beacon Theatre [Photo]

first_imggovOn Saturday night, Gov’t Mule continued their 2018 New Year’s run with the first of two shows at New York City’s Beacon Theatre. Following a guest-filled headlining performance at Philadelphia, PA’s Tower Theater, Warren Haynes and company kept the guests coming at the historic Manhattan venue.Gov’t Mule opened the first set with “World Boss” off of 2013’s Shout!, before moving through a solid take on “Lola”. A larger than life “Leave Your Light On” into “Mr. High & Mighty” followed, before the rock unit dove head-first into “Mr. Man”, which included teases of the band’s namesake “Mule”. The quartet kept on moving forward with “Pressure Under Fire” and “Slackjaw Jezebel”, with Haynes dazzling the crowd with an electrifying guitar solo on his gorgeous Gibson Les Paul. Mule invited up blues guitarist Danny Draher to lend a helping hand on Duke Ellington’s “Things Ain’t What They Used To Be”, before bringing the first set to a close with “Funny Little Tragedy”, which contained teases of “The Bed’s Too Big Without You,” “Runnin’ Down A Dream”, and “Message In A Bottle.”Following a brief setbreak, Gov’t Mule came back onstage to open their second set with “Larger Than Life”, before moving through “Thorns Of Life”, “No Need To Suffer”, and “Unblow Your Horn”. The guests kept coming as Haynes invited up guitarist Oz Noy for “Red Baron”, and the two threw some sizzling-hot guitar solos back and forth. Following “Stone Cold Rage”, a group of dancers came onstage to add some extra theatrics to Mule’s set-closing “Thorazine Shuffle”. A cover of Derek & The Dominos “Why Does Love Got To Be So Sad” served as the evening’s encore, as Haynes invited up Jimmy Vivino and Paul III to cap out the guest-filled night of rock and roll.Luckily, photographer Eric Gettler was at the show to capture some beautiful photos, which you can view below.Gov’t Mule will return to The Beacon Theatre in New York, NY for their annual three-set extravaganza on December 31st, where the band will be joined by guitarist Jackie Greene and drummer Shawn Pelton.
