Does Panic ever do anything out of the box?
As a band they have so much potential, but everything they do is so predictable and never a “wow” factor. Maybe they need a good LONG break to freshen things up. Besides, as evidenced by lackluster tour sales, they are burning the fanbase down with same shows and same old sh*t.. Maybe they need a creative director or something.

Largely agree with the predictable shows lately comment. Still, they make me dance.

What kind of wow factor are you looking for? This last tour they have busted out songs they havent played since the 80’s and are spot on! Jimmy is taking the songs to a new level and the band is at their best since Mikey. Panic doesnt need to wow you with some theatrics and shit, they just come to PLAY!

They’ve had a tougher time filling the seats since Phish came back on the scene. I love me some Panic… but I think I might have burned myself out of them a little bit. Phish being back has offered me some new tunes and jams to enjoy. I hope that Panic brings the heat after their break.

How are you even comparing phish to panic. they are not even in the same category. phish stands up there and sings songs about nothing and trey has this dumb ass look on his face. Panic sings songs about the highs and lows of life. the good and the bad… it aint all peachy…. its Fn REAL!
