Finally, Panic closed set 1 with “Blackout Blues”, “Junior”, and “Fishwater” off 1994’s Ain’t Life Grand.The band continued the trend in set two, opening with Bombs & Butterflies‘ “Greta”, which led into an extended improv jam. 1999’s Till The Medicine Take was next on the list of albums, as “Bears Gone Fishin’”, “Surprise Valley”, and “Climb To Safety” followed. Panic then skipped ahead a few years, resuming the tour of their studio work with “Good People” from 2006’s Earth To America and “North” and “St. Ex” from 2010’s Dirty Side Down. To finish things off, the band tore through “Cease Fire”, “Steven’s Cat” and “Sell Sell” from their latest LP, 2015’s Street Dogs.  A pair of covers comprised the show’s final licks, as the band encored with Vic Chesnutt‘s “Protein Drink/Sewing Machine” and Bloodkin‘s “End Of The Show”.Widespread Panic will finish off their two-night stand at Bridgestone Arena with a New Year’s Eve blowout this evening.Setlist | 12/30/16 | Bridgestone Arena | Nashville, TN (via PanicStream)[Porch Song, Space Wrangler,] [The Last Straw > Jam > Rock,] [Postcard, Diner,] [Blackout Blues, Junior, Fishwater] (82 min)[Greta > Jam] > [Bear’s Gone Fishin’ > Surprise Valley > Climb To Safety,] [Good People,] [North,] [Saint Ex > Drums > Cease Fire > Steven’s Cat, Sell Sell] (88 mins)Protein Drink / Sewing Machine, End of the Show* (17 mins)last_img
