Final Notes of Panic For 2004

With no Widespread Panic shows scheduled for 2004, many fans made the trek to the Atlanta to achieve some form of Panic-satiation during the group’s two nights at the Philips Arena. On New Year’s Eve the band responded with three sets that touched on many facets of its career and music. The group came out acoustic for the first, moving from ‘Fishing’ on through newer songs such as ‘Papa Johnny Road,’ and older compositions including ‘Chilly Water,’ while bringing Randall Bramblett out on sax for ‘Down,’ and ‘Christmas Katie.’ The next two sets similarly reflected the range of the group’s career, albeit skewed a bit towards classic material such as mid-80’s offerings ‘Stop-Go,’ ‘Sleeping Monkey,’ and ‘Coconut’ as well as those the band debuted a decade later including ‘Tall Boy,’ and ‘Action Man.’ The band’s three song encore carried from ‘Driving Song’ into the apt ‘Vacation’ and back into ‘Driving Song’ before Panic departed with ‘Make Sense To Me,’ pledging to return in 2005.
