Something Special: 

  • Time Warner Arena has figured this crowd out this time around, and geting into the show is a breeze.
  • Sold Out Crowd and the folks at home listening via the Sirius/XM Jam_On stream
  • Second Harvest Food Bank of America Food & Fund Drive
  • The new circularvideo  backdrop has pics from Wood Tour on display… but coincidentally, the microphones on stage are pitched up high, and no seats are out - the boys are bringing the electric first set back.
  • No hat-tips to their musician buds - Vic Chesnutt, Bloodkin, or Jerry Joseph on tonight's setlist.
  • House Music: Prior to NYE - 'Eminence Front' > 'Tricky' > 'Smooth Criminal'; Post NYE - 'Auld Lang Syne' > 'Tequila'; Post Show Music: 'Theme from Greatest American Hero (Believe It or Not)';
  • NYE Countdown... 'HAPPY NEW YEAR FROM WIDESPREAD PANIC & CREW' over the backdrop. Auld Lang Syne and Happy New Year scrolling across the arena.... house music comes up - Tequila after the countdown.
  • Jaw dropping light show directed by Paul Hoffman, who's known for modeling his stage rig after objects (See "Pi" - (Orange Beach 2009), "Pagoda" - (Fall 2009), "Uterus" - (Spring & Summer 2010), "Fighter" - (Fall 2010), "Clamshell" - (Spring & Summer 2011) and "Wifi" - (Fall 2011)). Let's call this badboy "Stargate"...  its center consisting of Mirage Video Panels that displa , operated with his new GrandMA2 Console. Fog lights around the soundboard, Circle rigs behind the stage, moving yokes, and massive lighting truss over the floor... moon, fractals, eclipse, fullmetal alchemist transmutation circles, earth, alien intervention, Sunday Mornin Show sun, and so on.
  • Jimmy on PRS most of the night, Telecaster some later in the 2nd set
  • Jimmy's amp signal cuts out rigt before the big solo during 'Jack'. Guitar tech Joel Byron is at the ready to fix things up and finish out the song.
  • Of the 26 NYE celebrations in year's past, the band has only gone without special guests 6 times ('07, '98, '90, '89, '88, '86) and tonight they're going pure Panic, and three sets of electric!
