Gov't Mule to play Vail's Ford Amphitheater Sept. 14
In a summer that has already brought the Vail Valley one of its best concert lineups to date, the Gerald R. Ford Amphitheater has announced that it will close out its season in a big way, bringing Gov't Mule to the stage on Friday, September 14.
Anders Osbourne will open for Gov't Mule, with doors opening at 5:30 pm and the concert kicking off at 6:30 pm. 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, and promises a memorable performance on the Amphitheater stage in September.
The concert is expected to sell out, so fans are encouraged to act quickly. Attendees of Bud Light 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.”
Tickets for Gov't Mule are available today and are expected to sell quickly. Visit the box office or call 845.TIXS(8497) to purchase.
The Gerald R. Ford Amphitheater is located east of Golden Peak at Ford Park in Vail. Concert attendees are asked to park at the main Vail Village parking structure, with overflow parking at the Lionshead parking structure. For added convenience, the free Town of Vail shuttles will run extended routes past Golden Peak from 5:30-9:30pm, with a drop off at the soccer field near the Ford Amphitheater. Additionally, a special Village-to-Village express bus will run from 4-9:30pm with stops at the east entrance of the Lionshead parking structure, in front of the Vail Village Information Center and at Ford Park.
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.
The Gerald R. Ford Amphitheater is a project of the Vail Valley Foundation. For more information on the Vail Valley Foundation, visit www.vvf.org.
