Widespread announces New Year's Eve jam

If you missed Widespread Panic's annual summer trek to Charlotte, which has included back-to-back shows in recent years, the jam stalwarts help make up for it with a New Year's Eve show at Time Warner Cable Arena.

Tickets for the December 31st Blowout Bash go on sale Friday, September 16 at TWC Arena's box office, Ticketmaster outlets, and or by calling 1-800-745-3000. The show is part of Widespread's 25th anniversary tour which leads up to the band's upcoming hiatus. Aside from a few special dates in early 2012 the fall run will be its last for a while.

The group also taped a 25th anniversary concert during the 2011 SXSW Music Conference for "Austin City Limits." The hour special will air on PBS October 15.
