This Week in History

New Year’s Eve is a monumental night no matter what year it is. On December 31, 2000-2006 (except 2004), Widespread Panic has been a staple at the Philips Arena New Year’s Eve celebration. The band was formed in Athens, Georgia, so they are a great example of homegrown talent. A banner commemorating their 17th consecutive sold out December 30/December 31 performance was recently hung from the Philips Arena ceiling.
