Legendary jammers, Widespread Panic announces its show in Cedar Rapids on October 28.

With more than 25 years of traveling under its belt, Widespread Panic is one of the most storied and experienced touring bands in the music scene. From its origins in frontman John Bell's University of Georgia dorm room, Widespread Panic has gone on to thrill crowds at festivals like Bonnaroo, Wakarusa and Azelea with a euphoric, adventurous sound that fuses blues, southern rock and funk. After a brief hiatus, WSP is back without missing a beat, performing alongside legends like Gregg Allman and Dr. John and continuing to thrill its own fans while winning over new ones.

Widespread Panic will host food drives at both shows, as part of their Panic Fans for Food initiative with the goal of “feeding people through music.” To date, this endeavor has raised more than $81,000 and 9,600+ pounds of food for communities across the country. Concert attendees are encouraged to bring canned goods or monetary donations to both the Iowa shows.
