Widespread Panic Announces Tunes For Tots 2021 Benefit Concert & Shares ‘Let’s Get The Show On The Road’ Pro-Shot Video
Widespread Panic announced their 11th annual Tunes For Tots benefit concert set to take place at Denver’s Mission Ballroom on Thursday, June 24 and benefitting music education on the Pine Ridge Reservation in South Dakota. WSP also shared pro-shot video of “Let’s Get The Show On The Road” from Charleston, South Carolina in 2013.
The Pine Ridge Reservation is home to approximately 30,000 people of the Oglala Lakota Nation. The Tunes For Tots benefit, coming just ahead of WSP's three-night run at Red Rocks, will help raise funds for much-needed musical instruments, equipment, music education programs and more.
Tickets go on sale Monday, June 7 at 10 a.m. MT. Head here to purchase tickets to Widespread Panic’s 11th annual Tunes For Tots benefit concert.
The “Let’s Get The Show On The Road” clip comes from Panic’s October 4, 2013 concert at Family Circle Stadium in Charleston. The Michael Stanley song is one of Widespread Panic’s oldest covers and even predates the band’s first official show under the WSP moniker, debuted on February 24, 1985 at the storied A Frame at Weymanda Court in Athens, Georgia, as per Everyday Companion.
Although “Let’s Get The Show On The Road” often comes during the encore, the 2013 Charleston play saw WSP including the song about halfway through the first set. It’s certainly a fitting song to share as live music and Widespread Panic return to the stage this summer.
