Gov’t Mule has revealed initial touring plans for 2023 with the announcement of a spring tour. The renowned GRAMMY-nominated quartet–led by Grammy-winning vocalist, songwriter, guitar legend, and producer Warren Haynes–will launch its 10-date headlining run on May 5 in New Orleans with a special evening during Jazz Fest featuring guests George Porter Jr. & Runnin’ Pardners.

From there, Gov’t Mule will stop in Memphis for the Beale Street Music Festival and then make its way to Cleveland, Nashville (May 12 at The Ryman), Birmingham, and Macon, among other cities, before returning to Haynes’ hometown of Asheville, NC for back-to-back shows at Salvage Station’s Outdoor Stage on May 19 and 20.

Artist pre-sale tickets will be available Friday, March 3 at 10am ET with local/promoter pre-sale beginning Monday, March 6 at 10am local time. The general on sale will commence Wednesday, March 8 at 10am local time.

Gov’t Mule–Haynes, Matt Abts [drums], Danny Louis [keyboards, guitar, and backing vocals], and Jorgen Carlsson [bass]–recently received their first Grammy album nomination for their critically acclaimed and chart-topping collection Heavy Load Blues (Fantasy Records) in the category of Best Traditional Blues Album. Heavy Load Blues, the band’s first-ever blues album, debuted at No.1 on the Billboard Blues Albums chart upon its 2021 release.
