That didn’t last long. The self-proclaimed hiatus stemming from the Widespread Panic camp lasted all of ten months before the band announced that they were hitting the road again. When a band tours with the vigor that Widespread Panic does, going ten months without a show can feel like years to a fan. Even though the band had an all acoustic tour throughout January/February of 2012, Widespread Panic had not performed an electric show since New Years Eve of 2012.

Widespread Panic has announced a return to Chicago with a two night run at the UIC Pavilion on April 12-13. Tickets for the show begin at $45 and will go on sale next Saturday, January 19th at 10 AM through Ticketmaster. Widespread Panic’s 2011 performance at the Aragon Ballroom was broadcast live on XRT on Halloween night.
