Widespread Panic Adds Two-Night Run to Summer Schedule
Widespread Panic has announced that it will conclude its summer tour with two nights at Fiddlers Green in Denver, CO on August 17 and 18. The group has ended its summer jaunts at unique outdoor venues in Colorado for the last few years, but chose Fiddlers because of the current forest fires in the area. It will be the bands first appearance at the venue. The August 17 show will feature performances by Keller Williams, Karl Denson and reggae legends Steel Pulse.
Tickets go on sale tomorrow through Widespread Tickets.
Panic kicks off its summer tour June 21 at Bonnaroo. For the complete itinerary, visit the groups online home.
