Watch Widespread Panic Cover ‘For What It’s Worth’ At Red Rocks In 2016
Widespread Panic unveiled pro-shot video featuring a cover of Buffalo Springfield’s “For What It’s Worth.” The performance was filmed at the iconic Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Morrison, Colorado on June 24, 2016.
Panic kicked off the second set of their first of three Red Rocks 2016 concerts with “For What It’s Worth.” The cover came during an extremely busy year for the band in which they were celebrating their 30th anniversary.
Stephen Stills wrote “For What It’s Worth,” a song Buffalo Springfield released as a single in 1966. Members of Widespread Panic started covering “For What It’s Worth” before the band was formed. Panic went from November 17, 1988 to February 10, 2011 between plays as per Everyday Companion — a span of 2,312 shows. The sextet then shelved the cover again until November 19, 2014. Fifteen additional versions followed through Panic’s most recent “For What It’s Worth” performance on January 26, 2020 at their Panic En La Playa destination event in Riviera Maya, Mexico.
Widespread Panic continues to share video from the band’s vault on YouTube. The “For What It’s Worth” from Red Rocks is among the latest clips released by WSP.
