Just curious. Saw the tour opener at Camden on Friday night, and I got the impression that the ABB fans weren't feeling Panic. That's cool, because I wasn't totally feeling the ABB show. But, I was just curious to see if you all are digging panic on this tour. I thought Panic's show was pretty awesome and there was a lot of energy among other Panic fans there. But ABB fans? Not so much. Everyone have an awesome tour.

I saw them once in 2003 or 4 and I didn't like them. Caught them at Camden and liked what I heard a lot. I think Jimmy Herring makes them. Of course Dave Schools too. And I liked their overall sound. Bell takes a while to get used to in terms of his vocals but they do a lot of harmonizing so I was cool with the sound of the singing. I liked their up beat material a lot better than their slower material.

Jimmy is a killer guitar player, but nothing else really appealed to me.

Mansfield will be my first Panic show. I'll be enjoying, although I'm pretty sure most of our crew will be hanging out in the lot. Unless the Warren acoustic rumors are true...

LOVE Panic (since first I heard them a few years ago) and have loved ABB for, well - 40 years. To me this sounds like a great pairing of bands and I'm just disappointed I'm not seeing any of these 2fers. I've read a lot of positive responses from folks that have been lucky to see this double billing.

I had a choice to see the ABB/Doobie pairing in Saratoga or the upcoming ABB/WSP
this Sunday in Hartford. I decided to go see the show in Saratoga with the Doobies,
which was GREAT! Most of the tour is with Panic, so I thought I caught something
special with this rare pairing at SPAC last Tuesday, with Doobies guitarist Tom Johnston
sitting in with the ABB on Southbound, and he sounded right at home with Derek and Warren.
By the way, I'm a Widespread Panic fan, too.

I LOVE Widespread Panic. I love JB's vocals and I love the intense wall of sound Panic has.

Saw them Saturday for the first time.

I'd DLed numerous shows to see what they were about, never got too excited over them.

Saturday we went in during the second song.

I stayed until Derek finished his first appearance, then left for a hotdog and a terribly overpriced beer.

I stayed out until they left the stage, just watching the crowd, talked to a few people, etc.

I thought the sit-ins with the ABB were great.

Tonight I listened to the DL of their set from Sat. really started to enjoy it.

The songs don't really mean much, I'll have to look for lyrics, but they are first rate musicians, much better than some openers or co-bill folks I've seen.

Seen them twice, really enjoyed them. The crowd brings so much energy - they are up from the first notes and dance the entire show.... looking forward to 9/2 in Chitown....

I've bought quite a few of their albums since that first show, and I really like a lot of their songs....

I'm definitely looking forward to seeing them in Raleigh. Jimmy Herring on lead guitar is hard to argue with.

I saw Panic way back. Not really a fan. I am looking forward to seeing them in B-ham in Oct. Love JH and DS. I have been a Jimmy fan for a long time.

Enjoy the shows.

love me some Panic

was in to them back in the early 90's with Mikey

was a shame when he died.

George was an ok replacement but wasn't going anywhere.

Jimmy turned the heat back up and they've been going full tilt since.

The section i sat in for the Panic set was rockin out.

I would have rather seen WSP than the Doobie Brothers when the ABB was out west in May.

Enjoy all the shows everyone!

I am first an Allman fan and I have to say both bands have an incredible amount of energy. I have a better time at Panic shows b/c the energy is given back to the band and then circles back to the crowd. I wish that same amount or level of energy was apparent when the Allmans take the stage. By the time the tour hits Charlottte I hope that that level of energy is there all night long and NO ONE is sitting down the entire show.

I feel that sometimes ABB fans especially in the summer tours don't always seem to be in to the ABB as well. So when looking at both bands I bet it could be tough to see which ABB fans are digging what. Just the other night in Jersey 90% of the section I was in was sitting down and seemed to have a dull stair....And since the band was on fire that night I couldn't tell what set of fans were there...

Personally, I am really looking forward to seeing Panic on Thursday at Jones Beach. I without saying I am pumped to see ABB on Thursday. I am also really looking forward to all the sit ins.

I think George got a bad rap by the fans. ANYONE stepping in after Mikey was giong to get a hard transition from the fans..... Even Jimmy IMO.

Sound familiar with any particular band we all know and love (ABB)?

I hope things worked out for the better for George and he has a great career for himself.

There's really not much to not like about Panic.

Bandorocks hit the nail on the head. Sometimes the ABB fans at summer shows don't seem into it. I don't know if it's age or the heat but I've seen some zombie like crowds over the years at Jones Beach. It's not new either. Even back in the Dickey era, he would ask if anyone was out there some times. Everyone seems real happy with the shows and the seats fill up every year though. I guess it's just hard to match the energy of the Beacon.

As far as Panic goes, I've been a big fan of them since 91 or so. They kind of fall on and off my radar every few years. I used to like their studio albums but the last 2 don't do anything for me at all. But just like the ABB, I never saw a bad WSP show. Mikey was a huge loss but the Halloween show I saw in 03 or so with George was one of my top shows by them with our without Mikey. Haven't seen them since Jimmy joined and I'm really excited to see them at the beach. I just hope I can get there in time to hear them.

ABSOLUTELY!!!

The Camden show was my first tme seeing, or even hearing Panic. I had heard about Jimmy Herring, by reputation, but never heard/saw him either (actually, that's not true, he played with the ABB at my first ABB show in 2000, but I don't remember much about it).

I am decidedly NOT a jam band fan, and really could not stand Rat Dog opening for the ABB for the past few years. The lifeless, aimless noodling of jam bands drives me insane.

Well, I was supremely impressed by Panic. The band was very tight, their jams seemed to go somewhere, Jimmy Herring went beyond the high expectations that I had for him, and the bass and keyboards were both awesome.

The only thing I didn't like was the vocals. Very thin to me, and the only thing that reminded me that it was a jam band.

After the Panic set, I said to some dudes beside me that the ABB had better bring their "A" game because Panic certainly brought theirs. Luckily, the ABB brought it, and made it one of the best all-round shows I've ever been to.

I'm keeping an open mind.
Looking forward to seeing them.
They are quite popular in this area.
