Widespread Panic closed out their four-show run at Morrison, CO’s Red Rocks Amphitheater last night. The Athens, GA-bred band hold the record for the most sold out shows in the historic space’s history. Last night marked the 42nd time the band sold out the amphitheater.
Last night’s show closed with a mammoth four-song encore consisting of “Dirty Side Down,” “End of the Show,” “Jesus Just Left Chicago” and “Travelin’ Light.” Spicing things up, the band performed the original version of “Visiting Day” and John Bell threw in a “Four Cornered Room” during “Bowlegged Woman.”
On Saturday night, Widespread Panic debuted their version of JoJo Hermann’s “On This Mountain Side.” The keyboardist released a version of the song as “Mountain Hideaway” in 2001 with his Smiling Assassins side-project.
Widespread Panic will kick off a three-show run at Alta, WY’s Grand Targhee Resort Amphitheater on July 4.
