Gov’t Mule postponed their forthcoming spring tour after Warren Haynes fractured his scapula on a family vacation in Costa Rica. As a result, they have rescheduled their run which was originally slated for April. 

In a statement shared on Gov’t Mule’s Instagram, Haynes wrote, “While on vacation in Costa Rica with my family this past weekend, I slipped on a wet surface and landed very hard on my shoulder.” He continued, “Upon arriving back to the States and seeing a specialist, it’s been confirmed that I fractured my scapula. Unfortunately, this means that Gov’t Mule’s Sping Tour, which was set to begin next Wednesday, must be postponed.” 

Haynes concluded, “I’m truly heartbroken and so very sorry that this happened. I don’t think anyone was more excited to get back out on the road than I was. We’re working to reschedule these tour dates and will have updates as soon as possible. That doctors are confident that my shoulder will be healed in time for Mule to hit the road this summer, as planned.”
