Gov’t Mule are the latest band to scale back some of their touring schedule due to rising COVID-19 rates in the U.S.

Explained the band via social media, “In consideration of rising COVID levels in the Columbia, South Carolina area, all parties have decided to postpone the Gov’t Mule/Trombone Shorty concert scheduled for Thursday, September 16 until Spring 2022, date TBD, in hopes of hosting these performances in a safer and more enjoyable health climate.”

Gov’t Mule goes on to say that the rest of their tour will remain intact – tickets for the SC gig will be honored for the 2022 show, to be announced.
