VAIL -The Gerald R. Ford Amphitheater announced it will close out its season in a big way, bringing Gov’t Mule to the stage on Sept. 14.
Anders Osbourne will open for Gov’t Mule, with doors opening at 5:30 p.m. and the concert kicking off at 6:30 p.m. Tickets for this general admission concert are $48 and on sale starting today.
Gov’t Mule, which started as a side project by Allman Brothers Band members Warren Haynes and Allen Woody, has grown to become a staple at music festivals across North America. Once named “a jam band with more than a casual investment in classic rock, soul and the blues,” the band has been powering through venues throughout Colorado and the nation, bringing legendary rock covers and Southern-rock originals for years.
Attendees of Hot Summer Nights shows at the Amphitheater may have a chance to score free tickets to the show, if they find the mule hidden somewhere in the venue and bring it to the box office that evening before fellow concert-goers find it first.
“We’re delighted to bring a big name to the Amphitheater to round out the summer,” said Jennifer Mason, director of the Gerald R. Ford Amphitheater. “The announcement of Gov’t Mule will surely bring some buzz and excitement to the Valley, and we find it a fitting finish to an incredible season at our venue.”
Visit the box office or call 970–845-TIXS(8497) to purchase tickets.
Once inside the concert venue, picnics with commercially-sealed non-alcoholic beverages are permitted, as are legless lawn chairs, blankets and umbrellas. Bikes, skateboards and dogs are prohibited at the Amphitheater. A concession area with a full grill and bar service is available.
