Widespread Panic Kick Off Spring Tour in St. Louis

Here’s a glimpse of last night’s setlist via Widespread Panic’s Facebook page

Widespread Panic kicked off their first electric tour since 2011 at St. Louis, MO’s Peabody Opera House last night. While the band has performed a few special shows during the past few months, their last outing was the acoustic Wood Tour in early 2012.

The group celebrated their return to the road with a fitting show-opening “Let’s Get Down To Business.” The band busted out a few tunes throughout the night, too. “Let’s Get Down To Business,” Bloodkin’s “Quarter Tank of Gasoline,” “I’m Not Alone” and Neil Young’s “Are You Ready For The Country?” were played for the first time since February 17, 2012. In addition, at the end of the show, Widespread Panic covered Talking Heads’ “Life During Wartime” for the first time since October 15, 2011.

Panic will return to the Peabody Opera House this evening.

So glad to see the boys back on the road. Minneapolis loves you, and we can’t wait til Sunday. Never miss one, right? I’ve seen them 30+ times going back to ’97. Its always a new, fresh experience. It’s amazing to watch a band you love evolve and change over the years, as you do yourself. They mirror your own life in a way. They share your highs and lows. But part of you, and part of them essentially stays the same at the core. Very cool to see. Keep up the good work, and see you down the long, winding road.
