Gov’t Mule mined their back catalog for gold on Tuesday night at Hensville Park in Toledo. The latest stop of the quartet’s summer jaunt featured one long set that contained three songs Mule had yet to play this tour.
After opening with a cover of The Staple Singers’ “Hammer & Nails,” the band played staples “Rocking Horse,” “Banks Of The Deep End” and “Larger Than Life.” Next came the first versions of “Thelonius Beck” and “Forevermore” of the summer. Warren Haynes then led the group through the title track from 2017’s Revolution Come, Revolution Go and his signature song, “Soulshine.” A run of “Trane” > “Eternity’s Breath” > a jam on the Grateful Dead’s “St. Stephen” gave way to the 2019 debut of “Little Toy Brain.”
The back end of last night’s concert featured “Fool’s Moon” and “Thorns Of Life” followed by a cover of CCR’s “Effigy” that included a jam on “Folsom Prison Blues” in its midst. Gov’t Mule closed the set with “Thorazine Shuffle” and served up their take on “Feel Like Breaking Up Somebody’s Home” as the encore.
