2024 will find Gov’t Mule celebrating a major milestone as the GRAMMY-nominated band, led by guitar legend, vocalist, songwriter and producer Warren Haynes, marks 30 years since its formation. To kick off the celebrations, the renowned quartet has announced the 30 Years Strong Tour for February. Commencing February 8th in Vancouver, the 13-date outing will travel throughout the West Coast and Texas stopping in Seattle, Portland, Los Angeles (February 15th at The Wiltern Theatre), Oakland, Las Vegas, Tucson, Albuquerque, Austin, and San Antonio, among other cities, before wrapping February 25th in Houston.
Fan Club pre-sale through Tickets Today will be available Wednesday, October 11th at 10am local time through Thursday, October 12th at 10pm local time with the general on sale beginning Friday, October 12th at 10am local time.

“Hard to believe it’s been 30 years and Gov’t Mule is playing with a newfound energy. Thanks, in part, to our new bass player, Kevin Scott, who is doing a fantastic job,” shares Haynes. “It’s going to be fun delving into our past for this tour while creating new music at the same time.” In other news, Gov’t Mule is set to unveil a special limited-edition vinyl EP, Time Of The Signs, for RSD Black Friday (November 24th). The 5-track collection, previously only available with the Deluxe Edition CD of the band’s latest studio album, Peace…Like A River, showcases four new songs along with an alternate rendition of the album track “The River Only Flows One Way” featuring Haynes on lead vocals.
“This EP, aptly titled Time Of The Signs, is made up of four additional songs that were written and recorded during the sessions for Peace…Like A River,” says Haynes. “But these four songs seemed to belong together in the same way that the original 12 on the album belong together, so we decided to make a companion piece. The EP also includes a different version of ‘The River Only Flows One Way,’ which could have gone either way (no pun intended).” Peace…Like A River (released in June via Fantasy Records) marks the 12th studio album from Gov’t Mule and the follow-up to their chart-topping, GRAMMY-nominated blues album, Heavy Load Blues.
Gov’t Mule – Warren Haynes [guitar, vocals], Matt Abts [drums], Danny Louis [keyboards, guitar, and backing vocals], and Kevin Scott [bass] – is currently in the midst of the North American leg of their Peace…Like A River World Tour. Before concluding this weekend, the band will perform their final Dark Side of the Mule set this Saturday, October 14th in St. Augustine, FL. This year, Gov’t Mule revived their renowned and extremely rare Pink Floyd tribute, which they first debuted in 2008 and had only performed live 10 times prior to this summer’s amphitheater tour. Following a short break, the band will then bring their acclaimed live show to Europe November 6-21 for the next leg of the Peace…Like A River World Tour.
“The performance is not a mere facsimile of the songs, but a faithful portrait that has been subtly embellished with Gov’t Mule’s own brush strokes,” American Blues Scene’s Derek Smith wrote in his concert review.
