Gov’t Mule’s summer tour stopped in Columbus, OH, last night for a show at Express Live!, and the band welcomed Blackberry Smoke guitarist Charlie Starr for a couple of encore tunes, including a cover of a Crosby, Still, Nash & Young classic.
Starr, who became a frequent collaborator of Mule’s during the bands’ co-tour last year, emerged for the last night’s two-song encore, which kicked off with the Neil Young-penned protest song “Ohio” and led into a cover of the Allman Brothers Band’s “Dreams.” Watch a video of the collaboration above.
See the full setlist below as it appears in our Box Scores section. Gov’t Mule and Blackberry Smoke continue their run together tomorrow night at PNC Pavilion in Cincinnati.
