Widespread Panic’s Electric Ballad

Despite gearing up for an extended hiatus, Widespread Panic has debuted several new covers in 2012. During the first stretch of their acoustic Wood Tour, Panic introduced a cover of The Beatles’ “Ballad of John and Yoko.” Last night, during the third show of their Panic en la Playa event, the band kicked off their first set with the first electric version of “The White Album” selection. The group also offered a few tasty jam segments, including a pairing of “Heroes” and “Impossible” first set and a run from “Tie Your Shoes” into “Ride Me High,” “Airplane” and “Goin’ Out West: second set. During the day, keyboardist JoJo Hermann also judged the event’s BBQ sauce competition.

Here’s a look at last night’s setlist

I think “ballad og John & Yoko” appears on the “blue” not the “white”.

ballad of john and yoko is Not only NOT on the White Album, but rather a John Lennon solo project and the Beatles were not even together when it was released. This article was only 1 paragraph long and totally inaccurate. This person should be banned for life at writing any more articles on this website.

not only was “the ballad of john and yoko” a john lennon solo project, but NOT on the Beatles White album and the Beatles broke up before this release. This article is only 1 paragraph long and this person knows nothing about the Beatles. This write should be banned from Jambase for life. hire me for the next trip to mexico to see panic, please!
