A fun evening...I'll keep it brief.

2 extended sets-Mule in set 1 and Mule with Robbie Krieger doing doors in set 2.

Set 1,and it could be my changing tastes,had some nice moments and cool spacey jams,but overall boring and we got restless waiting for the second set.Mule,as a band,is excellent with each member possessing massive talent.But,this set was dull.

Set 2 was outstanding,fun,and full of great Doors songs and the band really hit the note.Krieger was a tremendous treat(I never saw him and always wanted to) and the fluidity of his playing was special.His interplay with Warren was excellent...really cool.Also,unlike the first set Warren avoided that damn phlanger effect that drove me nuts,along with the horrible synthesizer,in the first set.

Given the second set,the show was really fun and well worth it...an old crowd in the loge...I fit right in!

The Mrs and I were there and we both agree with your review on all fronts. This show was really about the great 2nd set. This was most likely the best representation of live Doors music in over 40 years and it was a blast. Robbie Krieger was impressive and some of the jams and interplay between him and Warren were great and occasionally ABB-esq. This was a very fun New Years!

I was lucky enough to attend both shows thanks to bump827!!! I agree with dadof2 regarding the 12/31 show. However the 12/30 show was freakin' epic!!! I'll be checking the torrent sites for that show. I sure do hope JoeBeacon was there recording Monday night.....his recordings are amazing.

All the comments above are spot on. The 1st set sucked mostly until I'm A Ram which was typical but good. I did like the Thorazine because Matt has finally changed up the drum solo parts and its fresher now. But overall, 1st a yawn.

The 2nd set was off the charts. Someone said it was the best representation of Doors music in 40 years and I can easily buy into that. There were moments where I understood how that music felt when presented originally. The rehearsed parts where Krieger ran these super tight lines with either Warren or Danny were jaw dropping. Warren's smile though the entire set said it all. Krieger is far more talented than I ever understood and put on one helluva show last night.

Highlights: LA Woman, The End, Riders and the perfect way to end with Music's Over which has multiple extended jams. Wowzer of a set. Top 5 for sure.

Danny's synthesizers need to be destroyed.

I agree - 12/30 first set was ho hum but the second set made up for it BUT NYE was off the charts - RK played like a man half his age - lots of Mule classics - Blood and Wine & Time to Confess & Thorazine - just loved Funny Little Tragedy and was waiting for that - add in on the street parking for both nights and yes it was a wonderful two nights of music

I was there on 12/30 but not 12/31. 12/30 was, beginning to end, the best Mule show I have ever attended out of over 50.

I went to both shows in Philly and both Beacon shows. The first show in Philly was very good but it seemed like they were just revving up the engine. Night 2 in Philly was excellent and I left feeling it would be tough to top. As Doug and others have said the show on the 30th at the Beacon was over the top crazy unbelievably incredible. Just peaking on all cylinders from the first note to the last with a great setlist, incredible contributions from the guests, especially Vivino, amazing guitar jams, and a nice little three set tease for the encore with Kreiger. May just have been dare I say it as Doug did possibly the best Gov't Mule show I have ever witnessed over my 62 times seeing them.

As far as the 31st goes, when they announced that they were doing the same DOORS theme they did on Halloween out west I was disappointed and said I would rather have another one off show that they had never done before. Man was I ever wrong! Having obviously never seen the DOORS or even any of the surviving members what I experienced the other night had to be the next best thing to seeing the original band. The Mule once again as always along with Kreiger freakin' nailed it and had the crowd in a frenzied state for 2 hours. It was a magical set! I had forgotten just how many great songs the DOORS have in their catalog. Every song was great and they even left out some good ones.

My only respectful disagreement with Effie is about the first set which I thought was excellent. For me they picked up right where they left off the night before and were cooking on all cylinders.

I am now physically and mentally whipped from 4 incredible Mule shows in 5 days but my soul has been rejuvenated!!! 4 shows, 8 sets, 13 hours of music, amazing jamming, and not a single song repeated. I have now seen this band 62 times live and it never ever gets old and boring for me and my passion for this band of musicians continues to grow. Can't wait till my next Gov't Mule show!!!!!

LONG LIVE GOV'T MULE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Both shows were outstanding. The NYE Doors set was just one of the greatest times I've ever had. Robbie looked and sounded great. Warren always throws a wonderful show. Saturday night Philly was so strong. When they blasted the Electric Funeral jam the hairs stood up on the back of my neck. NYe was show 112 for me since December of 95. God Bless you Warren & the band & guests.
