Gov’t Mule fans will have to wait a little longer for their return to Upstate New York.
The jam rock band announced on Wednesday that spring 2022 tour dates have been postponed after legendary singer-guitarist Warren Haynes injured his shoulder.
“While on vacation with my family in Costa Rica last weekend, I slipped on a wet road and landed really hard on my shoulder,” Haynes wrote. “When I came back to the United States and saw a specialist, it was confirmed that I broke my shoulder blade.”
Gov’t Mule was set to begin a tour on April 6 at the Landmark Theater in Syracuse, followed by a concert on April 7 at the Palace Theater in Albany. Those dates will be rescheduled, Haynes said; information about possible refunds has not been disclosed.
Haynes added that he is expected to make a full recovery in time for Gov’t Mule’s summer tour, which begins in June.
Gov’t Mule, led by Haynes, previously performed in Syracuse in 2018 and was looking forward to getting back on the road after the Covid-19 pandemic. The band’s lineup also includes Matt Abts (drums), Danny Louis (keyboards, guitar and backing vocals), and Jorgen Carlsson (bass).
