Blues rock titans, Gov't Mule, begin their annual Mule Year's Eve run this Friday with their debut at The Met in Philadelphia, PA. The powerhouse quartet, fronted by Warren Haynes, welcome special guests – the Allman Betts Band – for what is sure to be a special evening of revelry and celebration.

Philly has been a consistent destination for the band around this time of year, typically rocking out at the historic Tower Theatre in Upper Darby. This time, Mule opted for the recently renovated venue – a former opera house – that boasts two balconies, 25 bars, 3,400 capacity and gorgeous interior architectural design. 

Gov't Mule consists of the aforementioned Haynes (guitar, vocals) and rounded out by Matt Abts (drums) Danny Louis (keys, guitar, trombone, trumpet, vocals) and Jorgen Carlsson (bass). The band recently celebrated its 25-year anniversary – a major accomplishment considering the untimely passing of Mule's original bassist Allen Woody in 2000. 

Tickets are available for The Met show here and start at $39.50+ fees. . Gov't Mule heads north on Saturday, December 28 to play The Palace Theatre in Waterbury, CT before returning to their home venue, The Beacon Theatre in New York City on December 30 + 31.
