Widespread Panic: Live in the Classic City II

LIVE IN THE CLASSIC CITY II TO BE RELEASED BY ATO RECORDS ON SEPTEMBER 28; FEATURING PERFORMANCES HEARD FOR THE FIRST TIME ON CD AND VINYL

Widespread Panic
Following the release of their acclaimed 11th studio album Dirty Side Down (career high Billboard chart debut), Widespread Panic and ATO Records will release the two-disc/three-vinyl set Live In The Classic City II on September 28. 2010 marks the ten-year anniversary of this monumental three-night run that took place on April 1-3, 2000 at the Classic Center Theater in Athens, Georgia. These recordings are also significant because they mark the first time Widespread Panic asked their fans, who are regularly permitted to record and circulate live performances, to refrain from recording these particular shows. Live In The Classic City II will mark the first time that these performances have been made available, and even heard if you weren’t there.

Live In The Classic City II includes special guests Mike Mills (R.E.M.), percussionist Arvin Scott, producer John Keane and vocalists Daniel Hutchens and Anne Richmond Boston. Chosen from the same set of dates, Live In The Classic City I was released in 2002 and went on to sell over 100,000 copies. The collection featured special guests such as Bill Berry (R.E.M.), Chuck Leavell (Rolling Stones), Randall Bramblett (Traffic, Steve Winwood), Col. Bruce Hampton, and Derek Trucks (Allman Brothers).

Widespread Panic has announced dates for their much-anticipated fall tour. The tour begins on September 17 in Morgantown, WV and includes stops in Atlanta, Baltimore, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Oakland and ends with a three- night stand in New Orleans, LA that includes their annual Halloween bash.
