Rolling Stones Concert Sunday at Superdome Still On As Scheduled
The Rolling Stones are scheduled to play a concert at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans on Sunday. As of right now, the show is still on.
Officials with the Superdome have been in contact with the Stones, and the band is aware of the weather and still has plans to play the concert.
"Everyone is watching the weather forecasts very closely," Superdome general manager Alan Freeman said Thursday morning. "If there is a change of plans we will get the word out right away."
Load-in and construction of the Stones' massive stage actually began on Tuesday. Several days are needed to erect the stage and its towering video walls.
Members of the band have reportedly already arrived in New Orleans with plans to spend a few days in the city ahead of Sunday's show.
As you may recall, this concert was added to the Rolling Stones No Filter tour as sort of a reschedule for the band having to cancel their appearance at the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival earlier this year. That show had to be canceled due to Mick Jagger's heart surgery.
If the show goes on and you're interested in going, tickets are still available through Ticketmaster, starting at $69 plus service charges. Resale sites have tickets listed for less than face value.
