Widespread Panic 3 Night Red Rocks Run

Widespread Panic Friday Night Red Rocks 2010

MORRISON, CO – Widespread Panic Red returned to Red Rocks Amphitheater in Morrison, CO to a sold-out crowd of 10,000 fans known as “Spreadheads”. These music lovers traveled across the globe to re-connect at one of the most amazing concert venues in the country. Throw in the band with the most sellouts ever and you have a combo for a fun night.

Highlights for me were being able to shoot photos of the first 3 songs!! What a cool honor. First set Pigeons was smoking, the Tie Your Shoes into Red Hot Mama Girl was stellar with Karl Denson as special guest. The second set opened with a high energy Conrad and didn’t hold back as they ripped thru the set and into a great Cream Puff War; Fishwater. Looking forward to round 2..

Widespread Panic’s Saturday night show (6/26/10) at the legendary Red Rocks Amphitheatre has ended with a bang. The show was broadcast live on SiriusXM radio via the JAM ON station to fans across the country.. Mother nature decided to show the traveling panic fans what Colorado weather was all about sending a huge rain storm over the venue before the concert started. Thunder and lighting were trying to engulf Red Rocks. Luckily by the time the band took the stage the rain passed.

First set started off with Better Off a catchy guitar riff. Highlights from the set also included a funky Love Tractor and cover of Neil Young’s “Mr. Soul”. The second set was really fun with some of my all-time panic tunes coming out. Hatfield, Surprise Valley, Arleen, Driving Song and Chilly Water all in one set.. Amazing

Widespread Panic ended their 3 night run at Red Rocks Amphitheater on Sunday afternoon. It has been said amongst loyal fan to “never miss a Sunday show”.. And wow did Widespread Panic hold up to there part of the bargain, bringing out hit after hit and some amazing cover songs. The second set was a dream show to this fan, everything I wanted to here. Dark and dirty Widespread Panic!!!

At the end of the first set, I looked at my watch and was wondering if it was time to go home already??? The Blight, Big Wolly Mammoth, and Stop Go are songs the band could encore with instead this was only 1/2 way thru the show. Once regrouped I was ready for second set lift off

It got messy quick, Postcard is as rowdy as panic songs come and a tribute to Colorado. Then into the hard rocking Impossible >Machine >Barstools. Dj Logic came out and really got the crowd moving, Then the Maggot Brain with Eric McFaden. It goes on and on.
