What A Performance
After a year of near-zero activity in the concert industry due to the coronavirus pandemic and lockdown restrictions, experiencing a full-scale concert is absolutely welcome. Live music has never been the same since the start of this global health crisis even as several artists organized virtual shows and events.
Rock & Roll Hall-of-Famer Ann Wilson of Heart joined Southern rock act Gov’t Mule on stage at the end of their three-night run at the Westville Music Bowl in New Haven, CT. They teamed up to perform covers of classic hits by Led Zeppelin and Tom Petty. They played “Immigrant Song”, “Black Dog”, and “No Quarter” in addition to their take on Memphis Slim’s “Mother Earth”, Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers’ rarity “Luna”, and Willie Dixon’s “You Shook Me”.
Although Gov’t Mule mainly performed originals in their previous nights at the same venue, they also incorporated several covers into their set such as Radiohead’s “Creep”, The Beatles’ “Tomorrow Never Knows”, The Allman Brothers Band’s “Dreams”, and Creedence Clearwater Revival’s “Effigy”.
Before singing her last song for the night “Magic Man”, Wilson said: “Now, we’d like to go from the sublime to the ridiculous.”
Meanwhile, Ann Wilson has been quite active in 2021. She previously released the singles “Tender Heart”, “Hammer”, and “Black Wing”.
