After a year long hiatus, Widespread Panic has announced additional dates for their much-anticipated 2013 Tour. The tour marks the first time the legendary sextet will tour featuring their full electric set up since 2011. Fans recently had a taste of what they have been missing when Widespread Panic played a rousing sold-out New Year’s Eve show at the Time Warner Cable Arena in Charlotte, NC. The prior evening, the band wowed the crowd during their annual Tunes For Tots benefit. To date, Tunes for Tots has raised over $900,000 for music programs in Georgia public schools. In early 2012, Widespread Panic embarked on their first-ever fully acoustic “Wood Tour”. The tour featured select, small venue performances in four cities over 11-dates. In October of 2012, the band released Wood, a special edition 3LP boxed set and double live CD, featuring selections from the special tour. Wood was very well received in the press and the fan reaction was overwhelming.
After 27 years, Widespread Panic (John Bell, Dave Schools, Todd Nance, John “Jojo” Hermann, Domingo “Sunny” Ortiz and Jimmy Herring) is as strong as ever as they continue to break attendance records at major venues throughout the U.S. Stay tuned for more dates.
WIDESPREAD PANIC will also play the Township Auditorium in Columbia SC on April 23 & 24. Tickets are on sale now at Ticketmaster.com, the Township box office, or charge by phone 800-745-3000.
