    Facebook setlists indicate two full sets with an encore. I would imagine they are around 2.5 hours total but not sure. Sco is playing about half the full show with mule, and is showing up in both sets.

    Looks like lots of jamming some of the sets only have 6-7 songs in them.

    I personally don't get why Sco is coming out for half of both sets. I can see doing the first set without him or like the first few songs of the first set without out him but then bring him out and have him play on everything else.

    It was a really good show. My first time seeing the Mule. They played about 2.5 hours with about a 1/2 hour break in between sets. It was awesome getting some Allman riffs weaving in and out of "I'll be the one" and it was also combined with "You Can't always get what you want." John Scofield makes some of the best Guitar faces I have ever seen. Here is a link to the setlist.

    It was a great show. Glad they finally got the muddy sound fixed for the second set. I dug the little feat song a bunch... The last song, not so much. I very much enjoyed John's playing... A nice addition and variation form the expected playing of Warren.

    I'll be seeing them in Charlottesville VA on Mar 6. I haven't seen Govt Mule before, nor Scofield for that matter. Can't wait.

    I'll be there as well! Warren is a favorite of mine, I first saw the Mule open for the Black Crowes in '96 and this will be my 4th time seeing them. Got to see the Warren Haynes Band a few years ago too. As well as a few Allman shows. The goal is to make it to Christmas Jam one year.

    Really digging to Sco-Mule and Shout CDs right now. I thought the Dark Side of the Mule was great, but just not something to play in regular intervals.
