Apparently, things didn't quite work out with the Exchange Park Fairgrounds venue, so the Widespread Panic concert has been moved again, this time to the North Charleston Coliseum.

The Charleston City Paper has the update.

Update September 1: The venue is being changed to the Exchange Park Fairgrounds located at 9850 Highway 78 in Ladson. Tickets are still $37.50 and pre-sold tickets for the old venue will be honored. 

They're saying the venue change was done to allow more fans in for the show.

The press release on the changes can be read here.

First reporting July 28: Widespread Panic recently extended their fall tour and are Charleston bound on October 2nd.

Panic on the Point will be taking place in a large field adjacent to the Charleston Harbor Resort and will feature an all-day lineup of live music.

In addition to Widespread Panic, Dead Confederate, The Movement, and Boombox will all take the stage to contribute to your mind melt. Tickets to the show go on sale at 10 a.m. this Friday, July 30th and will be $37.50 each.
