GRAMMY Award-winning vocalist, songwriter, producer, revered guitarist, and Gov't Mule front man Warren Haynes has announced his return to the stage with back-to-back solo shows on September 12th and 13th at South Farms in Morris, CT as part of the outdoor venue's socially distanced Twilight Concerts on The Farm series, which was created with both safety and the overall concert experience in mind and at the forefront. These shows, which will feature two sets each night, are Warren's first performances in six months, since his last appearances in NYC right before the shutdown at a sold-out Madison Square Garden during The Brothers' 50th Anniversary show and the Love Rocks NYC Benefit Concert. Warren will be joined by his Gov't Mule bandmate, Danny Louis, during portions of each night'sperformance.

Pre-sale will start August 26 at 9am ET with password OLDFRIEND and general on-sale starts August 28 at 10am ET. Per state order the venue has a reduced capacity of 25% and tickets are extremely limited.

Located on over 10 acres of manicured farmland, South Farms boasts a beautifully structured grid layout, adhering to public health guidelines while still maintaining the intimacy of live concerts and social distancing through vast spacing and outdoor, open air conditions. Each ticket allows entry for two people as concertgoers will purchase an 8'x8' Grid which is surrounded by an additional Social Distance Grid along with aisle spacing. Each grid is designed for two guests and is offset to maximize stage view. Grids cannot be merged and it is required to watch the performance from the designated area. Guests are welcome to bring lawn chairs and blankets for comfortable seating and enjoying the farm field. While outside food and beverages are prohibited, food trucks and a full bar will be available on site.

Safety is the top priority, and both shows will comply with the most current health and safety standards per state regulations and local jurisdictions in order to protect guests, artists, crew and staff. Face masks are mandatory when entering, exiting, and traveling throughout the venue to restrooms or concession areas. Masks are not required while in Guest Grid, however in accordance with Executive Order No. 7NNN: "Effective immediately, any person in a public place in Connecticut, whether indoors or outdoors, who does not maintain a safe social distance of approximately six feet from every other person shall cover their mouth and nose with a mask or cloth face-covering." Hand sanitizing stations will be dispersed throughout the venue. High-touch areas such as door handles and counter surfaces will be regularly and consistently disinfected throughout the show. Restrooms will be cleaned and restocked regularly as well. Everyone entering the venue, including guests, artists, crew and staff will be health checked including a temperature check and short questionnaire. Masks and gloves will be available upon request.
