On November 25, Indianapolis will experience a touch of panic. Widespread Panic, a legendary jam band often compared with the likes of Phish and The Grateful Dead, will be making a stop at the Murat Theatre on their fall headlining tour.
The group, known to Indianapolis music fans as a blues injected orchestra of meandering solos, tight drumming, and free form improvisation, will be fresh off a tour of the southern United States with the Allman Brothers Band, another legendary group.

Widespread Panic released their tenth studio album, Free Somehow, in 2008. The record received generally positive reviews and was released in three formats: CD, digital, and vinyl. It was a departure from their previous work and several songs featured a horn section and an orchestra.
The show at the Murat Theatre, one of the oldest and most beloved Indianapolis music venues, will start at 8 p.m. Tickets went on presale on September 11, but there are still many great seats available.
