WIDESPREAD PANIC ANNOUNCES TWO SOUTH CAROLINA SHOWS IN OCTOBER
UMPHREY'S MCGEE TO OPEN BOTH
Widespread Panic announced a
at Family Circle Stadium in Charleston, SC on October 4-5 with special guests Umphrey's McGee. These two rock acts have shared a couple of stages in the
past, but only a couple of collaborations have ever taken place. First was at a 2010 show at LC Pavilion in Columbus,
Umphrey's McGee keyboardist Joel Cummins joined Widespread Panic for "Space Wrangler" and a cover of The Guess
Who's "No Sugar Tonight/New Mother Nature." Later in 2010, Widespread Panic guitarist/lead singer John Bell joined
Umphrey's McGee for a cover of Bill Withers' "Ain't No Sunshine" at the Warren Haynes Christmas Jam. Hopefully these
newly announced dates lead to a
long overdue meeting-
lead guitarists Jake Cinninger (Umphrey's McGee) and Jimmy Herring (Widespread Panic).
Tickets are on sale Friday May 17th at 10am via Ticketmaster.
UPDATE: Digging a bit further into Umphrey's McGee setlist database, we discovered Herring & Cinninger
the stage on Jam Cruise in
2005 - though Herring was not yet a member of Widespread Panic.
