On the third and final night of Widespread Panic's 2015-2016 New Years Eve run at the Fox Theatre in Atlanta, fans were treated to a spectacular cover of Leonard Cohen's "Hallelujah." Watch it above, via Widespread Panic's YouTube.

John Bell's weathered vocals are a perfect fit as Widespread Panic take a graceful approach on Leonard Cohen's 1984 song. Jimmy Herring lends a touching solo, and warm organ playing comforts the soul. I'm sure there were not many dry eyes in the audience after this performance.

According to the authoritative Widespread Panic setlist website, Everyday Companion, this concert marked the first time the band performed "Hallelujah" in public, as well as a few other songs: "First We Take Manhattan" by Leonard Cohen, "A Hard Rain's A-Gonna Fall" by Bob Dylan, and "Heroes" by David Bowie. The full official soundboard recording is available exclusively through livewidespreadpanic.com.

Up next for the band is a four-day festival in Mexico in the beginning of February, followed by a North American tour.
