Widespread Panic is bringing the 2016 summer tour to Oklahoma City!
An American rock band from Athens, Georgia, Widespread Panic's current lineup includes guitarist/singer John Bell, bassist Dave Schools, drummer Duane Trucks, percussionist Domingo "Sunny" Ortiz, keyboardist John "JoJo" Hermann, and guitarist Jimmy Herring.
Since their inception in Athens, Georgia, in 1986, Widespread Panic has risen to elite status among American jam bands. Following in the steps of other Southern rock jam bands such as The Allman Brothers Band, they draw influences from Southern rock, blues-rock, progressive rock,funk and hard rock. They are frequently compared to other jam band "road warriors" such as the Grateful Dead and Phish. Widely renowned for their live performances, they hold the record for number of sold-out performances at Red Rocks Amphitheatre (Morrison, Colorado) at 48 and Philips Arena (Atlanta, Georgia) at 20.
