Gov’t Mule Debuts The Yardbirds Cover With Magpie Salute Members In Mankato [Video]

first_imgLast night, Gov’t Mule’s summer tour continued with a stop at the Verizon Wireless Center in Mankato, Minnesota. Once again, The Magpie Salute opened the night and returned to the stage later in the evening to join Gov’t Mule’s encore with back-to-back covers of Blind Faith‘s “Presence of the Lord” and the band’s debut of The Yardbirds‘ “Shapes Of Things”.To open the show, the Magpie Salute—featuring Rich Robinson and other ex-members of The Black Crowes—heavily leaned on their new album, High Water I, also sneaking in a cover of The Black Crowes’ “Thorn In My Pride” and The Byrds’ “Eight Miles High, for their forty-five-minute set.Warren Haynes and company took the stage next for one single set, pulling heavily on their original material, with selections from 2017’s Revolution Come…Revolution Go on mighty full display. Almost halfway through the set, they played the album’s title track then welcomed out Matt Slocum for “Girl With No Self-Esteem” from the same record. The Magpie Salute keyboardist stuck around for a cover of Jeff Beck‘s “Freeway Jam” before Mule closed their set with a band-only “Mule”.As has been the custom for this tour, Mule also brought up members of The Magpie Salute for the encore. Rich Robinson,  Matt Slocum, guitarist Marc Ford, and vocalist John Hogg joined Gov’t Mule for smoking covers of Blind Faith’s “Presence of the Lord” and The Yardbirds’ “Shapes Of Things”, with the latter marking Mule’s debut of the cover.Watch fan-shot video of the double encore below:[Video: alzeppelin]Gov’t Mule has three more shows with The Magpie Salute before they team up with Lukas Nelson & The Promise of the Real in Sun Valley, ID.
