Widespread Panic, The Noble Visions, and AliveOne to host the official ‘Live In The Classic City II’ CD release parties in Cincinnati and Chicago.

Live In The Classic City II

The Noble Visions, AliveOne, Widespread Panic, and ATO Records have teamed up to bring Cincinnati and Chicago the official Widespread Panic Live In The Classic City II CD release parties.  The Live In The Classic City II CD release party at AliveOne Cincinnati will take place Tuesday evening on September 28, 2010.  The Live In The Classic City II CD release party at AliveOne Chicago will take place the night before the release on Monday September 27, 2010.  Live In The Classic City II will be played in its entirety multiple times throughout the evening at both AliveOne locations.

Following the release of their acclaimed 11th studio album Dirty Side Down (career high Billboard chart debut), Widespread Panic and ATO Records will release the two-disc/three-vinyl set  on September 28th. 2010 marks the ten-year anniversary of this monumental three-night run that took place on April 1-3, 2000 at the Classic Center Theater in Athens, Georgia.

These recordings are also significant because they mark the first time Widespread Panic asked their fans, who are regularly permitted to record and circulate live performances, to refrain from recording these particular shows. Live In The Classic City II will mark the first time that these performances have been made available, and even heard if you weren’t there. If you were there, you heard the debuts of Imitation Leather Shoes & E on a G. And were treated to Success Yourself, which had not been played since 1995.

Live In The Classic City II includes special guests Mike Mills (R.E.M.), percussionist Arvin Scott, producer John Keane, guitarist Eric Carter and vocalist Daniel Hutchens (Blood Kin) and vocalist Anne Richmond Boston (Swimming Pool Q’s). Chosen from the same set of dates, Live In The Classic City I was released in 2002 and went on to sell over 100,000 copies.

“Once again we are completely thrilled to bring another Widespread Panic CD release party to both Cincinnati and Chicago. With the huge success of  Widespread Panic’s official Dirty Side Down CD release parties we held in May at the Cincinnati and Chicago AliveOne locations, there was no hesitation to host the official release parties for Widespread Panic’s newest live album, Live In The Classic City II” said Joshua Timmermans, Editor of The Noble Visions.  “We recently had the opportunity to photograph Widespread Panic at a tour stop of theirs in Columbus at LC Pavilion.  Once again, as expected, they delivered an incredible performance.  The Noble Visions and AliveOne are pleased to host these CD release parties, specifically for an official live recording of the band.  The Noble Visions and AliveOne have a strong affinity and dedication for live music and musicians.  This type of release fits in well with the scope of both our publication and AliveOne’s dedication to the live music experience.  Widespread Panic is a band that has been creating and playing music for well over 24 years and their live shows are the heartbeat of the band.  To be a part of the Live In The Classic City II CD release is an honor The Noble Visions and AliveOne do not take lightly.  The Noble Visions, AliveOne, Widespread Panic and ATO records have almost finalized all the details for the events, and are looking forward to hosting the parties.   With the popularity of Widespread Panic and the fact they play Cincinnati at PNC Pavilion on Sept 21, The Noble Visions and AliveOne expect these listening parties to be packed.  We are happy to bring this CD release party to the music fan base in Chicago, and elated to hold the  Cincinnati party less than a week after Widespread Panic performs at PNC Pavilion.”
