Gov’t Mule, the Avett Brothers and Magpie Salute pulled into Mansfield, MA to perform one of their limited ‘Dark Side of the Mule’ tour dates this past weekend. The day before, the Mule treated NJ to some killer renditions of Floyd tunes.
As they did the night before, the Mule kicked off the set with a couple of originals to warm up the crowd before diving into the Floyd catalogue. The first Floyd cover of the night was the short, but sweet “Pigs on the Wing (Part 2).” Warren and company didn’t waste anytime getting into the good stuff—the next tune was a 13+ minute “Shine on You, Crazy Diamond” featuring Ron Holloway on the sax.
Other guests throughout the night included the Avett Brothers on “Time” and Marc Ford and John Hogg on “The Nile Song.”
While the setlist was similar to the night before, the Mule threw in some different tunes like “Comfortable Numb” and “Echoes (Part 2).” And what better way to close out a night of Pink Floyd music than with Warren leading Great Woods in “Wish You Were Here” on the 12-string guitar?
