Backstory on how Stones were booked for Jazz Fest

[www.theadvocate.com]


Perhaps lost in all the Led Zeppelin banter is this little tidbit...

"For the first time in the modern history of the festival, ticket sales will be limited on “Rolling Stones Thursday.”
Also on that day, chairs and tarps will be prohibited entirely at the Acura Stage field, to free up more space."

Rolling Stones fans shiver through the cold night for advance tickets"

Thanks Lien it gave a different look to see the fellow fans standing for RS tickets.
I think we’re all just trying to do the best we can- I bet those Stones fans cannot wait!

If it were Led Zeppelin, the line would have gone on for a hundred miles...

People here are talking about the cat walk.
I dont see that happening at the Fairgrounds.
Besides taking up valuable crowd space, the Stones crew would have to come in and build it earlier in the week, then break it down right after the show that night.
Also, keep in mind the area is a grass and dirt field, so I dont think that would be able to support a catwalk, especially if it rains (which happens often during the fest).
Its possible, but keeping in the tradition of the Fest, I doubt it.

If that happens it could be the Stones crew - or the Jazz Fest crew. Jazz Fest opens at 11AM so there would be plenty of time to remove it.

I find it unlikely that it will be there since it would probably be there all day.

At Dessert trip the cat walk was set up and removed after Friday’s show for both weekends.i’ve never been to Jazzfest but don’t see a problem in setting up a modified catwalk overnight on Thursday

At Desert Trip the catwalk was in place 1st night for the Stones, although opener Dylan didn't use it (lol). The next night for Neil and Paul, the setup had totally changed, catwalk gone.

Just received word that my aunt and uncle waited 4 hours in the rain to snag tickets for my cousins and me. They said they only had 4 ticket windows running which caused a bit of a logjam.

Very excited to be returning to New Orleans for a week visit, and having the Stones there is the icing on the crumpet!

It was a joke, but I see you know your stuff about Idol. Anyways why the long lines, most shows are sold out online within an hour. Nobody stands in line anymore.

That was so sweet of them, JavaDave. Are they fans too, or just parents of a fan? Congrats!

I figured it was... so I kind of trolled it... but it made me Google it since I had no idea what you were talking about!

Seriously, the lines were because the online sale doesn't happen until Friday. 10,000 available to state residents only at the Supe.

FWIW, Aerosmith had a fairly substantial runway at last year's Fest.

How many tickets did you get? Jazz Fest -page says "There is a 4 ticket limit", otherwise it's been two and this Ticketmaster's queue says "To allow more fans to shop, each spot in line may complete one (1) purchase at a time".

I just needed 1, so that's all i bought. I had option to buy up to four. Got right through on phone after having 3 devices going. Couldn't believe how smooth it was.

Did it say sold out? I got in and was unable to purchase at first, get back in line multiple times and finally scored a pair.

It said no tickets available... so that means sold out to me.
