Gov’t Mule celebrated Halloween in the Netherlands with a show that once again saw them collaborating with guitarist Bernie Marsden and former Allman Brothers Band drum tech Rachel “Stixx” Turner.
The first set was played with just Gov’t Mule, as the band delivered takes on songs like “Banks of the Deep End,” “The Man I Want to Be,” “Kind of Bird” and others.
Turner was the first guest of the night as Mule kicked off their set honoring the famed English rock band Free, as the ensemble together presented a full set of the band’s songs. Turner joined in later on for “Songs of Yesterday” in the middle of the set.
Marsden got his turn in the encore, emerging for “Heartbreaker,” “The Hunter,” “Don’t Say You Love Me” and “Wishing Well,” all of which were debuts for Mule except for “The Hunter” and “Wishing Well.” Marsden previously joined the band at various stops in the UK.
