Galactic Announces Mardi Gras 2019 Run At Tipitina’s
Funk act Galactic will return to Tipitina’s, the legendary club they purchased in the band’s hometown of New Orleans for a series of concerts in honor of Mardi Gras. Galactic’s 2019 Mardi Gras run at Tipitina’s includes shows on March 1, 2 and 4.
Bassist Robert Mercurio recently spoke with Pollstar about Galactic’s decision to purchase Tipitina’s. “Not to sound sappy but it feels like home, and it always has,” Mercurio said of performing at the venue. “For one, we’ve grown up being fans and seeing shows there. I’ve been in the front row of that club looking up at the stage as a child. I’ve been on both sides of the fence, literally. When we first were on the stage it just felt like I had been transplanted from fan to performer. It just was a natural feel.” Tickets for Galactic’s Mardi Gras run at Tipitina’s are on sale now via the band’s website.
