Widespread Panic adds summer shows, festivals to spring schedule
Widespread Panic has extended its spring theater run through the summer, with several festival appearances now on the books as well.
The jam band kick off the entire schedule this weekend (3/6-3/8) with three nights in Richmond, VA. Those dates, along with a March 11 performance in Birmingham, AL, and a two-night stand March 13-14 in Nashville, will be acoustic shows, according to the band's website.
The Georgia-based outfit will then head to the Dominican Republic for several dates before returning stateside for a six-city West Coast run. The leg wraps up April 12 in Wilmington, NC.
Since last check, 14 more cities have been added to the itinerary, beginning June 7 in Chattanooga, TN, and wrapping up with two nights (9/13-9/14) in Danville, IL, at the Phases of the Moon Music & Arts Festival.
Widespread Panic took on their first-ever all-acoustic tour in late 2011 and early 2012, after which the group took a break. Their most recent studio album, "Dirty Side Down," hit retailers in May 2011 via their own Widespread Records, though a new live effort, "Oak Mountain 2001 - Night 1," surfaced last May.
