The indomitable Widespread Panic has announced more dates for their highly anticipated 2013 Fall Tour. The band will bring their electric live show to Cincinnati performing at the Taft Theatre on September 22nd!
The band’s most recent release is a special edition 3LP boxed set and double live cd entitled Wood. Wood featured entirely acoustic live performances recorded at four select intimate venues in 2012 and were very well received by both the press and fans.
Widespread Panic is known as a national touring force and continues to hold attendance records at major venues across the country including Lakefront Arena in New Orleans, Oak Mountain Amphitheatre in Birmingham, AL and Philips Arena in Atlanta, GA. They are a mainstay at many major U.S. festivals, having headlined 10 nights on the main stage at Bonnaroo. This year Widespread Panic will be making stops at The New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival, Wakarusa in Ozark, AK and Mountain Jam in Hunter, NY. The band still holds the single one-day attendance record for New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival – 63,000 in 1999.
For over ten years Widespread Panic has been dedicated to making their concerts “food drive events.” Since Summer 2008 the charity Feeding People Through Music has raised over $50,000 in monetary donations and over 6,000 pounds of food. Since each dollar donated is worth seven meals, these events have bought over 350,000 meals.
