Widespread Panic has announced the “Never Miss A Sunday Show” series, where the band will re-broadcast previous live performances every Sunday for free.
In a social media post, the band said that in order “to maintain proper ‘Panic’ levels,” it has partnered with Nugs.tv to provide fans with southern rock sustenance during widespread quarantines as a result of the proliferation of the novel coronavirus. The series begins on Sunday, March 22nd at 8 p.m. ET with a re-broadcast of Widespread Panic’s concert from Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Morrison, CO on June 30th, 2019.

Update: On Sunday, April 19th, in celebration of its anniversary, Widespread Panic will stream their record-breaking “Panic in the Streets” performance from 2018. Watch the live stream below:

While the shows are free, the band has encouraged fans to consider donating to a pair of charities Panic is currently supporting. The Garrie Vereen Emergency Fund provides financial assistance to local music industry professionals and venue staff who have experienced a loss of income due to coronavirus in the band’s hometown of Athens, GA. Panic also encouraged donations to another longtime partner, Conscious Alliance, that uses a connected network of musicians and other artists who focus on providing food to impoverished communities.
As the entire music industry wrestles with the ramifications of the spread of COVD-19, more and more musicians have begun to embrace live streams as a way to stay connected with fans. Last week, Nugs.tv launched a new series, Live From Out There, which will provide viewers with over 100 different live streams, re-broadcasts, and other exclusive content over the next six weeks.
Widespread Panic was recently forced to postpone its upcoming April run of shows in Chicago to August as a result of the spread of COVID-19 and the country’s evolving efforts to contain it. The Widespread Panic concert from Red Rocks on June 30th, 2019 will be available to watch here at 8 p.m. ET.
