…and Bruce Springsteen has been added to the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival!
Already, the NOLA Jazz Fest is going to be formidable, with performances by Foo Fighters, My Morning Jacket, the Beach Boys, Bob Seger (why not?), Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers, and this just in….Eddie Vedder (on the uke!).
To promote his wildly anticipated CD, “Wrecking Ball,” and the tour to follow, The Boss is going to be doing a rare festival appearance, and we for one, are over the crescent city moon that it’s going to be at New Orleans’ fairgrounds. Expect some of the city’s great horn players to be stepping up to the plate to stand in for the late Clarence Clemmons. Here’s some dates to prepare for the biggies, including NOLA’s breezy-easy-tasty fest:
1. SXSW: March 9-18 (Austin)
