Widespread Panic is one of this era’s most extraordinary live bands and they certainly proved this fact when they performed at the WVU Coliseum in 2010. With a loyal following who travel from locale to locale to take in their shows, Panic had been a consistent name on Pollstar’s Top 50 Tours of the Year for the decade preceding their 2010 gig at the Coliseum. 

Rachel Hagy, who drove three-and-half hours from Bluefield, W.Va. to see the concert explained the band's draw to The Daily Athenaeum. "These concerts are nothing like regular ones. It's more of a lifestyle," she told Jake Potts. "You never get bored coming to these shows. They never play the same set so it's a new experience every time."
