Aerosmith, Aretha Franklin, Sting, Bonnie Raitt Also Playing First Weekend In NOLA
Jimmy Buffett will likely be singing that song in that state at the end of April as he will be playing the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival – otherwise known as Jazzfest – on its first weekend.
Buffett will be performing on Sunday, April 29.
Also playing that weekend is Aerosmith, Aretha Franklin, Sting, Bonnie Raitt and Lionel Ritchie.
Tickets are $65 thru April 28 and $80 at the gate.
Note that this is Buffett and not the entire Coral Reefer Band; it’s Jimmy and his “Acoustic Airmen.”
Buffett is a Jazzfest regular, having played there often in the past. If you’re not familiar with the shows at Jazzfest, he’ll play for about an hour – most likely on the main Acura stage – in the late afternoon.
The “tailgate party” consists of taking an empty cooler and filling it up with beers on site (you’re not allowed to bring in your own alcohol) and plopping down in the lawn in front of the stage.
Then you can walk around to the other stages, get some of that great New Orleans food, returning in time to see Buffett’s show.
While at Jazzfest, it’s important to know these PubClub essential survival tips.
