The Voodoo Music Experience has announced that it will once again return to its original home of New Orleans for the first of its two-night festivities. This will be the first large scale event to take place in NOLA since the widespread destruction left by Hurricane Katrina. The October 29 show will take place at New Orleans' Riverview Park behind Audubon Zoo followed the next night at Memphis' AutoZone Park.
