Widespread Panic have been added to the lineup for Warren Haynes’ 25th annual Christmas Jam.

They join a lineup that already includes Gov’t Mule, Grace Potter & The Nocturnals, Michael Franti, Aquarium Rescue Unit, Phil Lesh Quintet, John Scofield, OAR, Keb Moe and John Scofield with Gov’t Mule (Sco-Mule), as well as a number of special guests.

Interestingly, Widespread Panic kicked off a a two-night run at the same venue last night. The show featured a guest appearance by Karl Denson, who contributed his sax to a rare cover of Professor Longhair’s “Stag-O-Lee” and a rendition of War’s “Slippin’ Into Darkness.” The show also featured versions of Sonny Boy Williamson’s “Good Morning, Little School Girl” and Dr. John’s “I Walk on Gilded Splinters.”

I went to the Panic shows this weekend in Asheville and I have to say, that’s the worst indoor venue I’ve ever been to. I’ve been in there a handful to times for Christmas Jams and other panic shows but I forgot what a joke of a dump it is. The house music leaving said it all. They played Samson and Delilah and everyone sang the chorus, “If I had my way, I would tear this old building down.” I’ll never go back…

Please don’t come back. AVL and the bands that love this town will be just fine without you.

Yeah don’t come back if you are that upset over the venue. This is my home town and I have seen a lot of magical moments happen in that arena. No it’s certainly not the best indoor venue but it definitely is one of the most special places to see a show. The Christmas Jam this year is going to be something else!
