Widespread Panic Aboard For 2019 New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival


Widespread Panic has been added to the lineup for Thursday, May 2 at the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival. The announcement comes after Fleetwood Mac and The Rolling Stones each canceled their Jazz Fest performances that were slated set for May 2.

Fleetwood Mac was added to the lineup last week in the wake of The Rolling Stones’ cancelation. Earlier today, Fleetwood Mac announced they would be unable to perform due to vocalist Stevie Nicks’ battle with the flu. On March 30, The Rolling Stones pulled out as Mick Jagger needed to undergo a medical procedure.

“Ticketholders for May 2 will receive a notice from Ticketmaster to exercise their option to use their tickets on any day of the second weekend of Jazz Fest or to receive a full refund. Admission for May 2 at Jazz Fest will no longer be day-specific,” reads a statement from the festival’s organizers. “Second weekend general admission tickets will now be valid for any one day of the weekend, including May 2.” Tickets are on sale now via Ticketmaster.
