Tickets remain on sale for Gov’t Mule Saturday, Nov. 2 at Harrah’s Lake Tahoe. The show will sell out, according to Director of Entertainment John Packer.

The band most closely associated with the Allman Brothers has toured all across the globe this year and on Sept. 24 released its eighth studio album, “Shout.”

The band which began in 1994 as a trio of Allman Brothers members Warren Haynes and bassist Allen Woody and drummer Matt Abts will play Lake Tahoe for the first time. It played in Reno about a half-decade ago.

Robby Krieger of the Doors will sit in with Gov’t Mule the two concerts preceding the one in Tahoe, Wednesday at the Henry Fonda Theatre in Los Angeles and Oakland’s Fox Theatre in Oakland.

More upcoming shows at Harrah’s include Tower of Power  on Nove. 30, Chubby Checker Dec. 21 and Booker T. Jones Jan. 18. Tickets for Booker T. go on sale Nov. 8.

Haynes, who has been a member of the Allman Brothers since 1989, commented about the new double-album on the band’s website.

“This album puts a spotlight on the songs and the way that we interpret them, which hinges on the unique chemistry we’ve developed as a band,” said Haynes, who along with Mule co-founder and drummer Matt Abts, multi-instrumentalist Danny Louis and bassist Jorgen Carlsson played on the record.

Shout!’s second disc included performances by Elvis Costello, Dr. John, Ben Harper, Toots Hibbert, Glenn Hughes, Jim James, Myles Kennedy, Dave Matthews, Grace Potter, Vintage Trouble’s Ty Taylor and Steve Winwood, who each delivered an alternate vocal performance of one of the first disc’s new Gov’t Mule tunes.

“No one’s done this before, which is exciting,” Haynes said, “but it’s even more exciting actually listening to these artists sing our songs. Their performances bring new ideas, energy and sometimes even different meanings to every number.”
