first_imgWidespread Panic settled in to Red Rocks Amphitheatre last night, playing the first of three sold-out shows at the historic venue. Red Rocks is celebrating their 75th anniversary in 2016, and the band that has sold it out the most is Panic. It’s always a special occasion when WSP meets RRX.The show opened strong with “Ain’t Life Grand” and a “Happy” that worked into “Airplane,” “Take~Off Jam,” “Rebirtha” and “Chunk of Coal.” The show really heated up in the second set, especially when the band busted out the song “You Got Yours.” Last played at Red Rocks on 6/29/02, this was the first-ever performance of the song with Jimmy Herring at the storied venue. The Mikey Houser-era jam was loved by all, and got the set grooving along nicely. The band also covered Funkadelic’s “Red Hot Mama,” paying tribute to the keyboardist Bernie Worrell who had passed away earlier that day.Panic’s tribute to two late musicians, Mikey Houser and Bernie Worrell, served to honor the true passion of performing at Red Rocks. With two more nights to come, you can expect some plenty of magic from Widespread Panic.Check out the PanicStream setlist below.Setlist: Widespread Panic at Red Rocks Amphitheatre, Morrison, CO – 6/24/16Set 1: Ain’t Life Grand, Happy > Airplane > Take~Off Jam > Rebirtha > Chunk of Coal, Contentment Blues, Steven’s Cat, Space Wrangler, Radio Child (60 mins)Set 2: For What It’s Worth, Pigeons > You Got Yours* > Good People > Dyin’ Man, Cotton Was King > Cotton Jam > Protein Drink > Drumz > Drumz & Bass > Sewing Machine, Climb To Safety, Red Hot Mama (89 mins)Encore: 1 x 1 > Action ManNotes Entire show with Mrs Edie Jackson on stage / * LTP at RR 6.29.02 with M Houserlast_img
