Veterans of the jam game, Widespread Panic, will make their first return to Tennessee since their headlining performance at Bonnaroo with a show in Nashville, Tenn. at The Woods Amphitheater at Fontanel Mansion on Friday, Oct. 7.
Touring in support of their 25th anniversary, this will act as their last tour before taking a hiatus. The group has toured relentlessly over this span including several dates in the mid-state as they’ve passed through venues such as Ryman Auditorium, Murphy Center and several headlining stops in Manchester, Tenn. at the Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival.
The group’s live show is always one to experience as shifting light visuals set the stage for tight musicianship across the board with John Bell’s crooning vocals along with Jimmy Herring’s roll-on-through guitar style.
Athens-based group, The Futurebirds will be opening in support and will explore the sound space with pedal-steel and stylings reminiscent of fellow Southern gentlemen My Morning Jacket.
Gates open at 6 p.m. and the show begins at 7 p.m. Tickets are available through Ticketmaster and are $52.75.
