Widespread Panic From Milwaukee to Atlanta

Widespread Panic is taking its New Year’s Eve party back to Atlanta. The band, which formed 30 years ago in nearby Athens, will be celebrating in a much more intimate venue compared to its most recent NYE shows in ATL.

After partying in Charlotte, N.C., last year and throwing a ton of big NYE bashes in the past 15 years at the 20,000-capacity Philips Arena, the Southern blues rock band is returning to the 4,665-capacity Fox Theatre. The residency is scheduled Dec. 29-31.

Jambands.com points out that Widespread Panic last played NYE at the Fox Theatre in 1998. The final show of the act’s 1997 New Year’s run at the venue was recorded and released as Atlanta, GA 1998.

Along with the NYE residency, Widespread Panic also announced three nights at Milwaukee’s Riverside Theatre Oct. 23-25 and its annual Halloween shows in Asheville, N.C., at the U.S. Cellular Center Oct. 30-31.

Tickets for Milwaukee and Asheville go on sale July 31. Details are yet to be announced for the NYE shows.
