Gov’t Mule and Trombone Shorty with Big Freedia
to Perform at the Capital City Amphitheater in October

Leon County Government proudly announces two upcoming concerts this October at Capital City Amphitheater. Gov't Mule with Mike Campbell & the Dirty Knobs on Saturday, October 8, 2022, and Trombone Shorty with Big Freedia on Thursday, October 13, 2022. Tickets go on sale Friday, July 22, 2022, at noon EST.

Gov’t Mule, led by GRAMMY® Award-winning vocalist, songwriter, guitar legend, and producer Warren Haynes will perform at the Amphitheater on October 8, 2022. The band's organic, daring music and improvisational virtuosity led them to be recognized as one of the most timeless, revered, and active bands in the world whose spot amongst rock titans remains unshakable. Opener and native Floridian Mike Campbell (former lead guitarist of Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers) & the Dirty Knobs are known for their rock and roll influenced by the vintage sounds of the 1960s and 1970s with a touch of the blues. Doors open at 6 p.m. Prices are $30 for General Admission, $40 for P2 Reserved, and $55 for P1 Reserved.

Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue with special guest Big Freedia will bring the sounds of New Orleans to the amphitheater on October 13, 2022. Born Troy Andrews, Trombone Shorty is a native of New Orleans’ Tremé neighborhood and got his start earlier than most, performing at Jazz Fest with Bo Diddley at age four and leading his own brass band at age six. A New Orleans musical icon, Shorty and his bandmates crash through funk, soul, and psychedelic rock with transcendent performances. Joining Trombone Shorty will be New Orleans-based hip-hop artist and worldwide ambassador of bounce music, Big Freedia. Doors open at 6 p.m. Prices are $30 for General Admission, $40 for P2 Reserved, and $55 for P1 Reserved.

Tickets for both shows will be available for purchase online at CapitalCityAmphitheater.com starting Friday, July 22 at noon.
