Widespread Panic

Widespread Panic finally kicked off their five night stand at the Beacon Theatre in New York, NY last Thursday, after two rounds of cancellations from COVID-19. The community finally got their chance to convene in the storied Upper West Side venue to hear their favorite southern jam rock tunes. The music was certainly worth the wait, as this six piece squad from Athens, Georgia crushed round one.

Friday night, Widespread Panic returned once again to Red Rocks Amphitheatre for their annual celebratory get down.  As per the usual, the band performed to a sold out crowd on the opening night of three and brought their southern heat to the faithful.

Widespread Panic has postponed their Beacon Theatre run for the second time based on complications from COVID-19. The new dates are July 21-25, 2022, and were originally scheduled for January 13-17, 2022. Tickets for the rescheduled dates are available here.

The band shared the following message via their website:

Jerry Joseph is a musician who lives in Portland Oregon, but he’s often gone. He’s been inducted into the Oregon Music Hall of Fame but is still rather obscure to a lot of people. He plays well over 150 shows a year in the usual places. Across America. Sometimes in Europe, Mexico, and Central America. Then there’s these other places he plays—Lebanon, Israel, Kurdish Iraq, India, and Afghanistan. All over the Middle East, often in war zones and refugee camps.

Originally scheduled in April of 2020, this run of Widespread Panic shows had been rescheduled twice and uniquely settled on some midweek shows in November at the Chicago Theatre. WSP’s second of a three-night run in Chicago was on Thursday night and they did not disappoint. The band took the stage 20 minutes after the 8 pm showtime, as ticketed, but early for Spreadheads. 

Landslide Records is proud and excited to announce an October 29 release date for LANDSLIDE RECORDS, 40TH ANNIVERSARY, a double-CD package commemorating its 40th year in business.
