Widespread Panic brought their show to Pensacola, FL last night for the first of their two-night stand at The Saenger Theatre. To end their first set, the southern gents dusted off “Coconut” from their 1988 album Space Wrangler. Having not played it since Panic En La Playa in January of 2015, a solid 130 shows have passed since the song’s last life.Among the rest of the night’s highlights included covers of Neil Young‘s “Vampire Blues”, Chuck Berry‘s “Let It Rock”, J.J. Cale‘s “Ride Me High”, and Talking Heads‘ “Heaven”. Panic fans were treated to knee-slapping versions of “Heaven, Ribs & Whiskey” and “Street Dogs For Breakfast”, as the night simmered into a “Mercy” extended jam that, with a break on the drums, led into a solid “Fixin’ To Die”. Second set ended with “Pigeons”, marking another stand-out song selection with remarkable placement. The sextet encored with another tour debut, “Vacation”.Thanks to YouTube user coloartist, you can watch the full performance of “Coconut” below:Widespread Panic return to The Saenger Theatre tonight for another sold-out show, then move on to St. Augustine, Florida, for two more nights that will close out the southern leg of this tour.Widespread Panic @ Saenger Theatre in Pensacola, FL 9/20/16:Set 1: Weight of the World, Pleas > Vampire Blues, Pickin’ Up The Pieces > Jam > You Got Yours, Let It Rock, Heroes, Rebirtha > Coconut* (71 mins)Set 2: Ride Me High > Tie Your Shoes > Heaven, Ribs & Whiskey, Street Dogs For Breakfast, Mercy > Drums > Fixin’ To Die, You Should Be Glad, Pigeons (102 mins)Encore: Vacation (11 mins)* LTP 1.25.15 Panic en la Playa (130 shows)[Setlist via PanicStream]
