Hailing from the small southern town of Athens, Georgia; the group Widespread Panic, first came together with members John Bell, Dave Schools, Joh Hermann and Jimmy Herring in 1986. The group which uses influences from all types of music came together with the intentions of forming a jam band style group that takes influences from rock, blues, Southern rock and more to created a fusion style that is entirely their own. With influences from bands like Grateful Dead and Phish the group quickly became known as one of the biggest jam bands of their type and for one of the most beloved live performance bands in the industry today.
While the group has had a number of hit records and successful singles and they have been praised for their unique sound; the band is most known for their live performance style. They currently hold the record for most sold out performances at the Red Rocks Amphitheater in Morrison, Colorado and the most sold out performances at Philips Arena in Atlanta, Georgia and these accomplishments only add to the list of hundreds of sold out shows they have given during their time as a group. The successful ticket sales of the band can be credit to their unique performance style that mixes high energy rock influence with the traditional jam band style that has had their fans on their feet for years.
With a live performance style that has been described as one of the best in the business, there is no denying the impact that Widespread Panic has had on the world of rock music and no denying that seeing the band live is a ‘must’ for any rock music fan. Those who are looking to get tickets to see Widespread Panic live will find that the jam band will be on the road for most of 2013 and delivering their exciting high energy performances to fans from all over the country. During these live performances, audiences can expect some of the group’s biggest hits over the past two decades as well as some of their new recordings performed live. However, with a reputation for selling out some of the biggest venues in the country time after time, those who are looking to get Widespread Panic tickets will want to act fast when getting their seats to see these unforgettable shows live.
