They are both playing at the same venue within two weeks of each other and I can only go to one show. Can't decide, I have not seen either of them live. Any suggestions? Also anyone ever been to the Wellmont in Montclair NJ for a general admission show? Thumbs up or down? Thanks for any input!

Mule...
If you seen Buddy Guy once you've seen his show. Mule is always switching it up and adding surprises. not to mention Buddy will only play out for like 90 Minutes top Mule will play 3+ hours.

Buddy's a great showman. His show is usually the same. But he is a living legend that may not come around as often as Mule does right now. I strongly suggest you see him while he's around. He is in his mid-70's. And while no end is in sight, neither was it for Robert Johnson, Duane Allman or Michael Hedges.

I suggest you go mow some lawns and scrape up enough dough to go to both . . .

I've seen Buddy Guy live 6 times & he always puts on a great show, but I've never seen Gov't Mule in concert, & I'd really like to. They were at the House Of Blues in Dallas late last year, but I didn't get to go.

That about sums up what I was gonna say.

My thoughts exactly.

Buddy without question... Mule will be around for many more years.

I have been to a couple of Wellmont shows, but never GA. I presume they will take out the seats up front and allow standing in the front, seats in the rear.

And since both Wellmont shows are GA you still have lots of time to save your cash up to got to both...

Mule!!! I've seen Buddy once. And while entertaining and a great player, he spent most of the show talking to the crowd, walking off stage and into the crowd, stopping mid-tune to flirt with a girl in the front row, etc. I was more than disappointed. I don't know what was up with him that night as I'd always heard he put on a great show. Incidentally it was a triple bill at the NYS Fairgrounds. BB King, Buddy Guy, and at the time, a young and up and coming female blues singer named Susan Tedeschi.

Now your scareing me people. I went to see BB King a few months ago and was thoroughly disappointed. All he did was talk, barely played at all. That was truly a waste of a show. Is Buddy the same way?

I Agree!

Alan Woods hit the nail on the head. Buddy gets bored or distracted or over-served at the bar, and never finishes a bunch of songs. I've seen him 4 times, and it's a fun show, but it could be sooooo much better. If you gotta choose, go for the Mule. Warren ALWAYS delivers.

I just think Buddy has a different idea of what a concert is than many rock fans do, me included. He seems to favor a free-floating thing, with casual chat, digressions, etc. Maybe it would work better at a juke joint. I get a real kick out of it.

Mule. ...from what i've heard from folk's who've seen Buddy in the last few year's....he's pretty unpredictable as to the quality of the show....as in (as mentioned above) finishing songs.talking to the crowd etc. ....

Buddy Guy is simply awful. I've seen him a number of times where he shows up late and or drunk. He starts playing songs and can't finish them. He alternates between yelling and whispering because he can't really sing. His act is tiresome. I'm done with him. I'd sooner stay at home and watch reruns of The Simpsons than pay to see Buddy Guy.

In short, go see the Mule.

Really? Buddy seemed able to get through his stint with the ABB at the Beacon ok.

I just saw Buddy Guy with Indigenous opening about a month ago in Harrisburg, PA. Buddy played his ass off. He's got tons of energy. It's not that he can't finish songs, it's more that he doesn't want to. He finishes about 50%. I first saw him at legends in Chicago about 15 years ago and have seen him many times since. I know what to expect and I'm thoroughly entertained every time. I spent most of the show smiling in amazement at his excitement level and blistering soloing. It is a totally different vibe than a Mule show. Buddy's antics are worth it though, he's a true showman and his goal seems to be getting the audience riled up and in between he gives some blues history and tells some stories. Go see Buddy.

My choice would be Mule for sure. Probably much more bang for your buck as Mule play longer shows. Go see Buddy another time as his shows don't really change very much. Buddy is a legend though and very entertaining so definitely see him sometime.

This is a no brainer for me. I like rock more than blues and Mule is my favorite band.
