Tickets for the recently-announced Widespread Panic concert set for Sat. Oct. 2 at the Charleston Harbor Resort go on sale for $37.50 (general admission) at 10 a.m. Fri. July 30.
Based in Athens, Ga., the rock band goes on the road this fall in support of a new studio album titled Dirty Side Down, their ATO debut. Keyboardist John "JoJo" Hermann, drummer Todd Nance, singer/guitarist John "JB" Bell, bassist Dave Schools, guitarist Jimmy Herring, and percussionist Domingo Ortiz took a much-needed break in early 2009, but picked up the pace with a number of selective concerts and short road trips last fall, including a concert at the North Charleston Coliseum.
Billed as Panic on the Point, the all-day concert features opening sets from Athens-based rock band Dead Confederate, Philly-based rock/reggae/hip-hop quartet The Movement, and Alabama electronic/dance duo Boombox. The event will take place in a large field adjacent to the resort hotel.
