Who’s coming to Jazz Fest this year? The Rolling Stones!
Organizers for the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival unveiled the much-anticipated lineup Tuesday morning for this year’s music festival at the Fair Grounds.
The other artists include Katy Perry, the Dave Matthews Band, Ciara, Gladys Knight. Chaka Khan, Tom Jones, Irma Thomas and Bonnie Raitt will also hit the Fair Grounds.
For The Rolling Stones, people will have to purchase day-specific tickets for that day. Tickets for the Stones, which will go on sale at 10 a.m. Thursday (Jan. 17) at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome, will be $185 with a limit of two per person for Louisiana residents.
The Rolling Stones hit the stage on May 2.
This is the 50th year for the popular festival in New Orleans, which has drawn numerous local, national and international acts over the years. The festival is also adding an additional day to its two-weekend stretch.
The festival will be held April 25-28 and May 2-5.
Organizers will also celebrate the 50th anniversary by honoring the people, places and things that have helped make the event part of the culture it presents.
