No idea - I'm so happy I jumped on the Brass Pass when I did or I'd be fucked. We get a special code for a Stones Day ticket - 1 per Brass Pass - so I'm stress free.
I've been coming to where I am from the get go
Find that I can groove with the beat when I let go
So put your worries on hold
Get up and groove with the rhythm in your soul

Mostly it's just the Stones that added nutso to the equation. As Quint said in his press conference, you have to understand the Stones are playing stadiums on the tour - all of which sold out immediately at onsale. So, the Acura field is about the same number of people - it was going to sell out just as fast as a stadium show.

I mean, I looked this morning and all of the weekend 2 CID travel packages were already sold out. None of the wknd 1's were.

Just bought tickets to Foundations of Funk - Wednesday night during the days between at the Fillmore which is inside Harrah's. Rumors of Keef sitting in are already strong AF for this show. Not sure if I believe them, but I'm into this one either way. I kind of want to check out the new Fillmore anyway.

Dig this - new Jazzfest 50th Anniversary Box Set coming soon:

https://folkways.si.edu/jazzfest?

Look who made the album cover!!


Quote
Few music festivals are as rich, profound, and joyous as the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival, now entering its 50th year. With 50 tracks recorded live, Jazz Fest captures the festival’s ecstatic spontaneity, which defines the essence and vitality of American popular music. Ever since its inception a half century ago, Jazz Fest has exuberantly expressed the unique confluence in New Orleans of Native American, African, Caribbean, European, Hispanic, and Asian communities. With essays and annotations by Keith Spera, Karen Celestan, Robert Cataliotti, Jeff Place, Rachel Lyons, and Jon Pareles, plus photos spanning the festival’s history, this box set delivers the sights and sounds of being at Jazz Fest for those who have not yet been there, and rekindles memories for the hundreds of thousands who return to New Orleans year after year. 5 discs, over 300 minutes of music, 136-page book.

More cool shit - If you've never been to the New Orleans Jazz Museum, you should go no matter what. It's right at the end of Esplanade by the Marigny.

I saw this at SXSW a few years back - it's a fun ride through a NOLA night. Worth watching if you have Amazon Prime.
