Guitarist Warren Haynes has a full schedule this year. On Tuesday he'll join the Dead at the Mid-Atlantic Inaugural Ball, which will be attended by President Barack Obama. The Dead will launch an extensive arena tour this spring -
their first tour in five years. For full details and tour itinerary, visit http://www.dead.net/.
As lead guitarist, co-lead vocalist, and musical director, Haynes played a major role in the revival and ongoing renaissance of the Allman Brothers Band. The Allman Brothers Band, featuring Haynes, will host a month-long residency at New York City's newly renovated Beacon Theatre this March, followed by the extensive national 40th Anniversary Tour this summer and fall.
Immediately following his inauguration performances, Haynes will record the first new studio album in three years by his own band Gov't Mule. This will be the first record to feature the quartet's new bassist Jorgen Carlsson. Gov't Mule will perform the following dates this winter, and will embark on a world tour in support of its new album (due mid-June) which will encompass the US, Europe, and Canada between June and August of 2008.
