Masters of rock improvisation Widespread Panic bring their Southern-inspired rock, jazz, and blues instrumental sound to Wolf Trap for the first time. They have attracted mainstream attention through a continuous touring schedule and by delivering electric live performances. Widespread Panic currently holds the record for the highest number of sold-out concerts at the Red Rocks Amphitheater in Morrison, Colorado. Their 2012 album, Wood, chronicles the band’s first fully unplugged tour and features covers of famous hits such as “The Ballad of John and Yoko” and “Many Rivers to Cross.” The band also founded the Tunes for Tots program, which raises money to provide public schools with musical instruments and computer music labs.

The hit jukebox musical Rock of Ages returns to the Filene Center for two rollicking nights of classic ’80s rock tunes and lighthearted comedy. The script follows the tubular exploits of a small town girl, a boy from South Detroit, and their feel-good love story.
It features music by iconic rock bands, including Journey, Night Ranger, Styx, Pat Benatar, Bon Jovi, Poison, Whitesnake, and many more.
Based on a book by Chris D'Arienzo, the original musical premiered in Los Angeles in 2005. It has since become one of the longest running shows on Broadway and has been presented on tour all over the world. The Rock of Ages tour is directed by Kristin Hanggi, with choreography by Kelly Devine, and orchestrations and arrangements by Ethan Popp.
