first_imgLast night, Gov’t Mule returned to Atlanta, GA’s Tabernacle for their annual Halloween celebration. The band previously hinted through their social media outlets that their Mule-O-Ween show would include, or at least incorporate Black Sabbath’s 1970 heavy rock album Paranoid. Warren Haynes and company’s two-set show last night included a heavy dose of Gov’t Mule staples during the first set, as well as the entirety of Sabbath’s Paranoid album played from front to back.Gov’t Mule opened the first set with “Stone Cold Rage”, before working through a seamless segue of “Revolution Come Revolution Go”, “Mule”, and “Monkey Hill”, which included an ending segment of The Beatles’ “She’s So Heavy”. Mule continued to work through staples “Larger Than Life”, “Game Face”, and “Lay Your Burden Down”, before closing the first set with “Brand New Angel” off of 2006’s High & Mighty.Following a brief set break, Gov’t Mule returned to open the second set with a frequent cover of Black Sabbath’s “War Pigs”. The band then worked through the next seven tracks off of Sabbath’s Paranoid, debuting live renditions of “Paranoid”, “Planet Caravan”, “Iron Man”, “Electric Funeral”, “Hand Of Doom”, and closed the second set with “Rat Salad” smoothly flowing into “Fairies Wear Boots”. Gov’t Mule’s encore began with a take on  “Swede Leif Solo”, highlighted by Jorgen Carlsson’s mind-bending work on bass, before the remaining three members emerged to  joined in on “Sweet Leaf.” Haynes and company then offered up “Into The Void” and “Solitude” off of Black Sabbath’s 1971 album Master Of Reality.  The band closed out their four-song encore with a cover of “Snowblind” off of Sabbath’s 1972 album Vol. 4.Gov’t Mule – “War Pigs”[Video: Richard Vining]Gov’t Mule – “Paranoid”[Video: Got Mule?]Gov’t Mule – “Planet Caravan”[Video: Got Mule?]Gov’t Mule – “Iron Man”[Video: Richard Vining]Gov’t Mule – “Sweet Leaf”[Video: Got Mule?]Next up for Gov’t Mule is a show in Pittsburgh on October 30th, followed by a two-set affair in Fort Wayne, Indiana, on Halloween proper.
