Gov’t Mule 2016 – 2017 Tour Dates

ZZ Top & Gov’t Mule Announce Small Co-Tour for this year! :
Topping the charts this year as the hottest blues & rock concerts is most likely to be the small tour of ZZ Top and Gov’t Mule. The two bands have actually announced co-tour dates with each other. The two bands will join together in September with live concert shows in New York, Pennsylvania, Maryland, North Carolina, Virginia, Illinois, and Missouri. Hopefully more states will be added to the schedule. ZZ Top’s main man Billy Gibbons shared a quote about the upcoming tour on ZZ Top’s official website: “Both ZZ Top and Gov’t Mule are cut from the same dyed-in-the blues cloth… I’ve long admired the band and Warren Haynes’ guitar work. He has a certain grit to everything he does. We’re gonna have a fine time.”

In addition to touring with ZZ Top, Gov’t Mule will also make their annual appearance at Mountain Jam. which will be held June 2-5 at the Hunter Mountain ski resort in Hunter, N.Y. Also on the performers list for the music festival are the Chris Robinson Brotherhood, Beck, Wilco and Train, who will perform Led Zeppelin‘s second album in its entirety. That should be awesome!
