Southern improvisational masters and legendary jam band, Widespread Panic, returns to the St. Augustine Amphitheatre for a three-night concert run beginning Friday, September 14 through Sunday, September 16, 2018. Together more than 30 years, Widespread Panic was formed by original members vocalist/guitarist John “JB” Bell, bassist Dave Schools, and late guitarist Michael Houser, who lived together in a suburban house in Athens, GA, where they met as students not far from the University of Georgia campus, later to be joined by drummer Todd Nance. The band’s line-up was solidified with the addition of percussionist Domingo “Sunny” Ortiz and keyboard player John “JoJo” Hermann and Duane Trucks on drums.
Since forming their original lineup in 1986, Widespread Panic’s accomplishments are well documented. During their impressive run, the band released 12 studio albums (including Street Dogs) and 43 live albums, selling more than 3 million copies as one of the most successful touring acts in the world. They’ve broken attendance records at major venues throughout the country, including a staggering 48 sold-out shows at Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Morrison, CO.
During all three concert dates, concert-goers can participate in a food drive; non-perishable food items will be accepted. The band has been hosting food drives at select shows on their tours with the goal of “feeding people through music”.

Saturday, September 15 — Doors 5:30pm / Show 7:00pm
