Last night, Widespread Panic continued their run of the Northeast with a performance at The Mann Center for the Performing Arts in Philadelphia, PA. After wrapping up two classic shows at the new venue in Coney Island, NY, anticipation was high for this late-summer Sunday performance.Fortunately, Panic brought the heat all night, opening with a cover of Neil Young’s “Walk On,” before a great series of prized originals spanned the entire first set. The band ultimately closed out set one with a rendition of Buffalo Springfield’s classic “For What It’s Worth,” which you can watch below.Watch Widespread Panic’s take on “For What It’s Worth” below, courtesy of Bill Cochran.Set two opened with the classic Bob Dylan song “A Hard Rain’s A-Gonna Fall” and featured “You Should Be Glad” and The Meters’ “It Ain’t No Use.” The band even welcomed some guests during the “Drums” segment that followed “Impossible,” as Sikiru Adepoju and Richie Shakin’ Nagan accentuated the jam with unique percussion instruments. Finally it was “Saint Ex,” “Proving Ground,” and “Action Man” that closed out the second set. “May Your Glass Be Filled” and “Postcard” served as a two-song encore, leaving Panic fans smiling after a great showing at the Mann.Check out the full PanicStream.com setlist, which can be seen below.Setlist: Widespread Panic at The Mann Center for the Performing Arts, Philadelphia, PA – 9/11/16Set 1: Walk On, Makes Sense To Me, This Part of Town, Glory, Visiting Day, Old Neighborhood, The Last Straw > Big Wooly Mammoth > For What It’s Worth (66 mins)Set 2: A Hard Rain’s A-Gonna Fall, You Should Be Glad, It Ain’t No Use > Blight, Impossible > Drums* > Drums & Bass* > Saint Ex, Proving Ground, Action Man (89 mins)Encore: May Your Glass Be Filled, Postcard (11 mins)Notes: * w/ Sikiru Adepoju on Talking Drum; Richie Shakin’ Nagan on Shakers
