Widespread Panic Day in Denver

MAYOR JOHN HICKENLOOPER PROCLAIMS "WIDESPREAD PANIC DAY" IN DENVER

At the end of Widespread Panic's sold-out run this weekend, the band will have played 32 Sold Out shows at Red Rocks Amphitheatre - more than any other band in the venue's history. Red Rocks officials will honor the band with a special award presentation, and a mayoral proclamation calling Friday, June 27 "Widespread Panic Day" in the City and County of Denver.

So is everyone going down to Morrison and taking the town over ala Phish? HAHA. It'd be fun to catch those shows but I'll be out there for the Mule in august if all goes as planned. "This is Red Rocks, this is the edge."

I love seeing one of my favs get this kind of recognition. Getting this nod from THE major metropolitan hub of the intermountain west just shows how far they've really come over the years and how the respect for this caliber of band sorta filters through all walks of life.

crowesfan--- care to elaborate why WSP is the "most overated band in the jam scene today"?

-

I believe they've shared an incredible career with a loyal fan base, which continues to grow. Their impact on the jam scene is undeniable! I'll admit I often get bored during their drum solos, but just like a slow Phish song it's always a great time to make a quick run to the porto's.

Congrats! Well deserved indeed.

Likewise, I am wondering why anyone would consider WSP the "most overated band on tour".? Perplexed??

Nice, it is now possible to walk down the streets of a major American city on Widespread Panic Day with up to an ounce of decriminalized ganja in your pocket. That's the shit.

I think to answer the question about them being overrated, i'll just say that I've been referring to them as Jimmy & Friends for a while now...these guys haven't done anything original since Mikey died.

Calling Rickymullet- I would have expected about 7 more posts from ya...I mean THIS IS an actual board for people to post thoughts about Panic or more importantly YOU AND J.B.- Youve littered every other board with comments about J.B. "bringin tha heat"- We got it now-

Jimmy saves the day!

Dog it seems like everyone but you discovered Panic years ago- Every comment you throw out there is "JB and the boys bringin heat"- Page's Letter..."thats great...maybe Phish will get with JB and the boys and bring the heat"- Tribe's Soundblaster..."No electricity- Just bring in JB and the boys- No better band for acoustic classics"- I know Panic's sound- 99% of the people on here know Panic's sound- Its just weird that EVERY post of yours involves Panic-

Sorry to juke up everyone elses space here-

By the way: Widespread Panic is one of the best if not the best band touring right now, but the last few albums have not impressed. What happend to every song on every albume being great?

What is the deal here folks? Why do people take the time out to make rude comments about Panic? If you don't like them then don't but why put the effort into insulting them. I don't like Phish but I don't make efforts to insult them. Oh and why throw in the Ole Miss bash. This is just sad. If Panic sucks so bad then why have they sold out Red Rocks, Chicago and Atlanta so many times? Well at least we don't have to worry about you negative folks ruining our good time at the shows!

Can anyone recall the last time Phish played Red Rocks? 1996. And then banned. Compared to Widespread Panic with 32 consecutive sellouts since 1998(?). Anyone dissing WP has alot to learn.......

June 27th is my birthday, and I was lucky enough to catch that weekend of amazing music. Nothing more special than a heroes opener and a scathing vampire blues on your birthday! Throw in a slow porch, sandwich pigeons in between a fat low spark and you've got an unforgettable evening. I love all the fans, all are welcome to come party panic in my book. After all, I was a goddamn noob my first show too...
