The summer tour marked a Panic first when the band headlined four consecutive nights (one more than the usual three) at the legendary Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Morrison, Colorado, adding to their already staggering attendance record. The four shows brought their total number of consecutive sold out shows at the venue to an unprecedented 42, and counting.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 $55,000 in monetary donations and over 7,000 pounds of food.  Since each dollar donated is worth seven meals, these events have bought over 350,000 meals.WIDESPREAD PANIC - 2013 FALL TOUR DATESSeptember 7 & 8 – Arrington, VA – Interlocken Music FestivalSeptember 20 & 21 – Memphis, TN – Snowden Grove AmphitheaterSeptember 22 – Cincinnati, OH – Taft TheatreSeptember 24 – Detroit, MI – The FillmoreSeptember 26-28 – Milwaukee, WI – Riverside TheaterSeptember 29 – Indianapolis, IN – Murat Theatre at Old National CentreOctober 1 – Carbondale, IL – SIU ArenaOctober 3 – Tuscaloosa, AL – Tuscaloosa AmphitheaterOctober 4 & 5 – Charleston, SC – Family Circle Stadium**w/Umphrey’s McGeeOctober 25 & 26 – Austin, TX – Austin City Limits Live at Moody TheaterOctober 27 – Houston, TX – Bayou Music CenterOctober 29 – Tulsa, OK – The Brady TheaterOct. 31 – Nov. 2 – New Orleans, LA – Keifer Uno Lakefront Arena**11/1 w/The New Orleans Suspects*11/2 w/BoneramaNovember 5 – Miami, FL – The Fillmore Miami Beach at the Jackie Gleason Theatre**w/Roosevelt Collier & Bobby Lee Rodgers BandNovember 6 – Jacksonville, FL – Moran TheaterNovember 8 & 9 – Asheville, NC – Exploreasheville.com ArenaNovember 12 – Baltimore, MD – Modell Performing Arts Center at the LyricNovember 14 – Syracuse, NY - Landmark TheatreNovember 15 – Boston, MA - Orpheum TheatreNovember 16 – New York, NY – Theater at Madison Square GardenDecember 31 – Atlanta, GA – Philips Arena2014March 17-20 – Dominican Republic Panic En La Playa Tres at Hard Rock Hotel
