Attaining true road warrior status, Widespread Panic has broken attendance records across the country, including a staggering 60 consecutive sell-outs at legendary Red Rocks Amphitheatre, 18 sellouts at State Farm Arena in Atlanta, additional records in the UNO Lakefront Arena in New Orleans, Birmingham's Oak Mountain Amphitheater, New Orleans Jazz Fest and The Fox Theatre in Atlanta. Panic has headlined most of the major U.S. festivals including Bonnaroo (eight times), Lollapalooza, ACL Festival, LOCKN', Outside Lands, Forecastle to name just a few.

Over the past 30 years, Widespread Panic has sold over 3 million albums, 4 million downloads.
