Widespread Panic Confirms No Red Rocks Run In 2020

Widespread Panic won’t play the iconic Red Rocks Amphitheatre in 2020, marking the first year since 2012 the band hasn’t performed at the Morrison, Colorado venue. While the band hadn’t formally announced this year’s run, they had booked the venue for their annual June visit. The decision comes in the wake of the coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic.

Last year’s Widespread Panic run at Red Rocks spanned June 28 – 30, 2019 and was the band’s 60th – 62nd consecutive sellouts at the venue. Widespread Panic made their headlining debut at the natural amphitheater on May 31, 1996 after taking part in multi-band bills on September 14, 1991; July 2 & 3, 1993 and July 4, 1994. The group played two nights at Red Rocks in 1997 and 1998 and expanded the run to three nights in 1999. 2004, 2009 and 2012 are the only years Panic hasn’t returned since.

Hi Everybody,

We are extremely sad to say that the traditional WP Red Rocks shows will not be scheduled this year due to the current Covid-19 situation.

We feel that June is too soon for such a large gathering and no other dates are available at the venue this year. We look forward to continuing the Red Rocks tradition with you, safely, next year.
