Widespread Panic Ends Pensacola Dry Spell

When Widespread Panic plays its two sold out shows at the Saenger Theatre this week, it will be the first time the band has touched down in Pensacola in a long time. Though its hit nearby locales like Orange Beach, Ala., a number of times in recent years, the band has not played Pensacola since April of 1999.

According to the “Everyday Companion,” a compendium of all Widespread Panic performances, the band has played Pensacola a total of five times since emerging from 1980s Athens, Ga. In looking forward to this week’s shows, let’s take a look — eh, listen — back at a few of these past performances.

The last three dates include links to audio recordings of the performance.

July 27, 1994, Bayfront Auditorium

May 12, 1995, Springfest

June 27, 1996, Bayfront Auditorium

July 16, 1997, Bayfront Auditorium

April 28, 1999, Bayfront Auditorium
