Widespread Panic To Enter Studio Before Summer Tour
Widespread Panic has announced that next month it will return to Compass Point recording studio in the Bahamas to begin recording its follow-up to last years _ Earth to America_. Terry Manning, who produced that release, will once again work with the band. Panic will then return to the U.S. for a summer of touring, beginning with a stop at the Wakarusa Music Festival on June 9. Then, following a festival-closing performance at Bonnaroo, the band will begin its summer tour proper on June 22 at Red Rocks. Panic will tour through July 28, with multiple-night runs in most cities including three night stands at Red Rocks, the Orpheum Theatre in Los Angeles (June 28-30), Austins The Backyard (July 6-8) and the Chicago Theatre (July 13-15). In addition, the group will perform two nights at radio City Music Hall on July 20 and 21.
