10.31.09 - THE TOWER THEATRE IN PHILADELPHIA, PA

Gov't Mule returns to one of its favorite venues - The Tower Theatre in Upper Darby (Philadelphia), PA on Saturday October 31st. Following in the tradition of 2007's "Holy Haunted House" and last year's Pink Floyd spectacular, the band, once again, has something very special planned for the occasion. Pre-Sale Tickets will be available through Mule Ticketing on Tuesday August 18th @ Noon Eastern. We will also be offering you the opportunity to purchase the show poster for what will be a memorable night of music with your pre-order tickets.

Based on the advertisement in the email that I received, could it be a Rolling Stones theme.

Warren has said Frank Zappa was an influence.

Frank's Halloween shows were legendary.

Coincidence?

Discuss.

I have been wanting the Frank Zappa theme. I think it's in the cards at some point...

jumping jack flash it's a gas gas gassssssssssss sez the N2O2 mayflies

sorry, just had to crack a bad egg on that.

ummm steak wit for all my fiends


Angelemerald - 8/13/2009 at 04:34 AM

Cool. I'll be there for sure.

Stones. I hope they aren't just sticking to one album. Sticky Fingers is the first time the tongue logo was used. Some great songs on that one but they have so many great ones that I hope it's not just limited to that album. (Brown Sugar will be cool though.)

I still have a copy of the album with the zipper. It still works. I am sure it wasn't a first print though. But it is still in good condition.

I'll be there for my first Muleaween show. Already booked a room. Just like the NYE shows, the Halloween shows are always special and it looks like the Stones this year which should be awesome!!!


susea - 8/13/2009 at 10:38 AM

I'd like to see if I can get some of my clan on a road trip or else I'll be on the solo train once again...


moemoe6434 - 8/13/2009 at 11:26 AM

CRAP! If only I could be at 2 places at one time.

I just bought Pearl Jam Halloween tickets yesterday, they are playing the Specturm's very LAST CONCERT that night in Philly.

Philly has not been treated to a great Halloween show in a loooong time so I jumped quickly on the Pearl Jam opportunity.

Looks like Philly is gretting TREATED on Halloween this year!!!!!

On the plus side, I am not a big stones fan to begin with.......


moemoe6434 - 8/13/2009 at 11:31 AM

It would have been cool if they would have done a David Bowie show b/c he has a live album that was recorded there.


Smattermonnat - 8/13/2009 at 11:59 AM

some known Stones covers the Mule has played:

2000 Light Years From Home
Under My Thumb (tease)
You Can't Always Get What You Want
Mothers Little Helper (tease)
Lets Spend The Night Together
Sympathy For The Devil
Play With Fire
Wild Horses
Gimme Shelter (tease)
Satisfaction (tease)

I'm sure there's more....

I agree, but if they go the one album route my vote's for Exile on Main Street.....give me some Sweet Virginia!!!

Isn't Left Coast Groovies sort of an ode to Zappa?

Warren sat in with Umphreys McGee at Mountain Jam this year and they played a killer "Can't You Hear Me Knocking" A favorite Stones tune of mine and one I'm sure Mule would sound great doing.

that would be cool but I would guess that many Mule fans wouldn't understand or comprehend the brilliance of the tribute. Frank's definately an acquired taste- one I definately enjoy.

Warren did Gimme Shelter in its entirety with the Dead. They have also done Paint it Black and Can't Always get what you want tease.


blueeyedgirl - 8/13/2009 at 07:21 PM

Super excited I was bumming since I couldn't make the show in AC, but the Tower is about 15 minutes from my house. No way I'll miss this!

You can't go wrong either way. I would be perfectly happy to spend my Halloween at a Pearl Jam show. It being the last show at a venue will make it extra special.


KPRESTN712 - 8/13/2009 at 08:21 PM

The Mule also performed the Spider and the Fly. Would be cool to hear that again.


lonomon - 8/13/2009 at 11:40 PM

Our township never has trick or treat on the 31st. It is usually a day or two earlier.


LikeToSmoke - 8/14/2009 at 12:41 PM

Holy Moly. More rock and roll history on the way. I think we need to move up North!

I wonder if they'll play Sympathy For The Devil?


billybarool - 8/14/2009 at 03:18 PM
