Widespread Panic concluded their summer tour and second night in St. Augustine last night. Where the first night was punctuated by special guests and two sets, last night was a no bullshit, massive single set show.
WSP trotted out classic originals and a bevy of artists by artists including Michael Stanley Band, NRBQ, Neil Young, Professor Longhair, Talking Heads, Tom Waits, Jerry Joseph, brute and Traffic. The entire set, excluding the the 11-minute encore clocked in at a whopping 2 hours and 47 minutes. WOW.
After the massive set, WSP came out for two more encore tunes, including a “Dear Mr. Fantasy” show-closer. What a way to end the tour!
