The Disco Biscuits have announced a four-night, three-city Road To New Orleans spring 2023 run culminating in a two-night stand at the Big Easy’s Mahalia Jackson Theater during the second weekend of Jazz Fest.
The four-night run, presented by Live For Live Music, will kick off in Alabama with shows at Birmingham’s Iron City (Wednesday, May 3rd) and Mobile’s Soul Kitchen (Thursday, May 4th). From there, The Disco Biscuits will make their way to New Orleans, Louisiana on Friday, May 5th and Saturday, May 6th (8:00 p.m. doors, 10:00 p.m. show) for a two-night stint at Mahalia Jackson Theater, located in the heart of Louis Armstrong Park.
The Road To New Orleans run comes at an exciting time for the beloved electronic-jam-fusion outfit. Currently in the midst of one of their most prolific creative periods in years, The Disco Biscuits have been consistently shelling out new material on stage and in the studio for the better part of a year. The Biscuits’ latest studio single, “Shocked!”, arrived in February along with a cryptic message hinting at the new material’s inclusion in an upcoming “space opera.”
Pre-sale tickets for all four Disco Biscuits Road To New Orleans shows are now available using the password SHOCKED on the following ticketing pages: Birmingham, 5/3 | Mobile, 5/4 | New Orleans, 5/5 | New Orleans, 5/6. Remaining tickets will go on sale to the general public beginning Friday, March 10th at 12:00 p.m. local venue time. For full ticketing details, visit the band’s website.
