Great show by Warren and his new band. New album and 1st Warren album was well represented. Positive feedback from audience on the new tunes. Many empty seats though. Did not see alot of publicity in the Philly area about the show and the new CD. Not surprised though. Not a great city for music. Warren and Ron Holloway were monsters on the night. My favorites were:

Sick of My Shadow(Holloway was amazing)
I'd Rather Go Blind(great vocals by Warren and Ruthie),
Everyday Will Be Like A Holiday(the outro guitar solo was epic by Warren)
All four Acoustic songs (Warren's vocals were powerful)
On A Real Lonely Night (What a duel by Warren and Holloway at the end)
Invisible (what a tune. I can't believe it never surfaced with the Allmans & the Mule)

Really??? Some of the best, and most well attended early Mule shows I ever saw were at the TLA on South Street. Philly isn't New Orleans or NYC, but come on!

I've been to many of those TLA shows too. My first Mule show was back in 1996 at the Middle East with 30 people in attendance. That show got me hooked with Warren. Philly sure is not New Orleans or NYC. I think I would add San Fran, LA, Boston, Chicago and maybe some others. Just wish the Warren show would have been better attended. He is a major talent and deserves it. I think the problem is too many people are programmed into thinking that mainstream music is where the quality is. I have many friends who think that way. I just wish more people would be more open minded. Maybe its just that they are not informed. I did not see one review on Warren's album in the Philadelphia Inquirer or the Daily News. I try my best to spread the Word of Warren on Facebook.

Gotta agree with Mule75. Most of the recent Mule shows at the Tower have been sold out. Let's not forget that the Tower holds over 3,000.

I sat in the Loge last night and it was half full. Also the Lower and Upper Balcony were curtained off. Not sure how full the floor was. I agree the last couple Mule shows at the Tower were close to capacity but not last night.

That is really too bad that the show wasn't that well attended, as Philly is really a great music town. I recall seeing a review of the concert industry last year that said Philly was one of the few stops where bands felt they would get a good showing, and a place that nearly everyone wanted to stop.

It was a very good show last night at The Tower. It's a shame that the attendance wasn't as good as the Mule shows there, but I think that the band didn't let that get in the way of the music.
I think that I've been to every Mule show at The Tower, and am pretty sure that the curtain across the balcony area had been up at all of them, giving the illusion of a more full theater.
As far as Philly being a lousy music town, you couldn't be more wrong. I grew up a 10 minute walk from The Tower, and know many people that are into all kinds of styles of music, and suppport live music.

Absolutely EPIC show. Loved every minute. LOVE the style of music on this record, and at the concert. The female vocalist was fantastic. The sax was great. And the guitar / sax duels were so so awesome. Really, really like the cleaner tone Warren plays with in this band.

My girlfriend would not enjoy a Mule show, but spent the whole evening telling me how much she was enjoying the show.

For the moment On A Real Lonely night is my favorite song on earth. I can't listen to it enough right now. And, I've probably played it 10 times since I got the album on Friday.
