Polish Love The Mule

Sven Philipp interviewed Warren Haynes for Glide Magazine. Here’s what Warren says about playing in Europe, Poland in particular.

It was just incredible. The shows sold out in minutes and they were so into it and over-the top. It was nothing like I’ve ever seen. We’ve been pretty astounded at the European shows in general and the audience was so much more aware of our music than we realized. To see people singing the words to virtually every song has blown us away. The audience recognized the songs after the first notes, and Poland was the most exaggerated version of that yet. For example, when we started “Soulshine,” the place in Warsaw just erupted. We just didn’t know what to expect. We knew we had a lot of fans there because we’ve been getting a lot of e-mails, but until you go, you just don’t know what to expect? It was beautiful.
