Earlier today, Fleetwood Mac announced the postponement of their upcoming U.S. / Canada tour dates, including their recently announced appearance at New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival. Fleetwood Mac was recruited to take the headlining slot that The Rolling Stones initially held, prior to Mick Jagger‘s sudden health complications and the band’s subsequent cancellation.
On Monday, Jazz Fest organizers revealed that Widespread Panic will offer up a headlining performance to replace both The Rolling Stones and Fleetwood Mac’s previously scheduled slot. May 2nd at Jazz Fest will also feature performances by Mavis Staples, Ziggy Marley, Tom Jones, Dumpstaphunk, Anders Osborne, and many more.
New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival tickets for May 2nd are on sale now via Ticketmaster for $75. The festival notes that second-weekend general admission tickets will now be valid for any one day of the weekend, including May 2nd.
