Blues-rock legends and masters of jazz improvisation, Widespread Panic are bringing their spring 2015 tour to the Fox Theater Oakland for three consecutive nights this Thursday-Saturday. Kicking off the tour this month on the West Coast, the Athens, Ga., band’s current lineup of John Bell, John “JoJo” Hermann, Jimmy Herring, Todd Nance, Domingo “Sunny” Ortiz and Dave Schools has taken the time to explore new territories in both sound and songwriting technique following their 2012 hiatus. Beyond finding a rejuvenated sense of purpose as musicians, the sextet has completely reworked their live show to include innovations in both its recorded audio and live portions. Never knowing what type of show you’re going to get, Panic continues to revel in the element of surprise. Whether it’s their ever-changing setlists, expansive jam sessions or creative outlook, they take you on a musical journey with their artistic spontaneity each time they hit the stage.
Contest ends Thursday at Noon for Thursday 3/19 show, Friday at Noon for Friday 3/20 & Saturday 3/21 shows.
