SHOW GOES ON DESPITE 24-MINUTE STORM DELAY
returned to Red Rocks last night for the second of four consecutive shows at the iconic
venue in Morrison, CO. Red Rocks is known for its scenic location, but also for the
massive storms that roll through the area. One such storm enveloped Red Rocks during last
night's second set leading to a 24-minute delay before the band came back and finished
their 40th consecutive sold out show at the historic amphitheater.
After opening with "A of D" on Thursday, Widespread Panic started last night's show with
"B of D." The first set also included covers of "Sell Sell" by Alan Price and the Grateful
Dead's "Cream Puff War." The second set opened with the fan-favorite pairing of "Disco"
and "Diner." Later in the set, "Chilly Water" referenced the weather moving in and
following a cover of "Heaven," the band cleared the stage for the aforementioned weather
delay. Once the weather moved out, Widespread Panic returned to end the show with staples
"Space Wrangler," "Ain't Life Grand" and "Fishwater."
Friday night's show was broadcast as a pay-per-view special and a LiveWidespreadPanic.com
webcast. Some cable providers cut out of the live show before the encore, leading some
fans to miss the group's cover of "Many Rivers To Cross" by Jimmy Cliff. Widespread Panic
returns to Red Rocks tonight for the run's penultimate show.
