Bluesfest Touring is proud to announce an unmissable double header for Rock n Roll fans – Gov’t Mule with special guests Lukas Nelson & Promise of the Real. The Metro in Sydney and The Corner in Melbourne are set to come alive with the sound of epic guitar and thundering drums when the bands roll into town in March.
Gov't Mule has showcased their virtuosity, intelligence and breadth for more than two decades, which have encompassed 15 studio and live albums, millions of album and track sales and thousands of performances. Formed as a side project for members of The Allman Brothers Band, Gov’t Mule has become a human encyclopaedia of timeless American music while adding to that canon with their signature sound.
The buzz around Lukas Nelson & Promise of the Real was immense when they last played Australia in 2016, and has done nothing but intensify over the past 2 years. Lukas first piqued music lovers’ attention on his dad Willie Nelson’s 2012 album, Heroes when their voices blended with potent DNA. Two years later, life took another turn skyward when Neil Young decided to make Promise of the Real his touring and studio band. These experiences were undoubtedly invaluable, but none of what has come before will prepare you for the cosmic country soul of Lukas Nelson & Promise of the Real, the band’s new, self-titled album released on August 25, 2017. Sydney and Melbourne will be in for a treat when Lukas Nelson & Promise of the Real deliver their self-described blend of ‘Cowboy Hippy Surf Rock’ next March.
