I think they were saying about 50,000 GA tickets were sold for that day, most of them GAs, compared to the 100,000 let in on other days. Is that others' understanding too?

Yup have tix and have been researching quite a bit. The word is that they limited sales to the 50K range (According to festival organizers).

BV - did you get VIP for this show or are you GAing?

Now that we have tickets we started looking at lodging and it already seems either otherworldly prices, or booked solid.. Any leads?

Unfortunately that's par for the course for JF, everything gets booked up really early (some hotels are booked 12 months in advance), even at crazy prices. One possibility is to stay a couple miles away, drive closer, and then walk a mile or so. Some of the hotels out in, say, Kenner or Metairie have JF shuttles, also.

There are a lot of places on the Northshore, across Lake Pontchartrain from New Orleans, quite a few B&B's, in Mandeville, and not too much up the road some hotels in the Covington area, as well as air b'n'bs all over, too.

The causeway is a 24 mile toll bridge (only Southbound, the original bridge) across the lake, and it's about a 45-60 minute drive into the city depending on where you are coming from and time of day for traffic.

So definitely check out places on the Northshore.

Thx GLS! If we're flying in though will the north side be too far for a cab or uber? (meaning will it cost hundreds of dollars each way?) .. I did look at airbnb this morning and those prices are more expensive than the hotels.

My wife and I stayed a night at the Monteleone in New Orleans and it was $125, with tax, I forget - oh yeah - parking was $20 or so, probably about $135. A friend of mine has a B&B (it's really more of a Bed & Beverage than Breakfast) in Mandeville with the same price for a room, with tax, $130, and his rooms are slightly bigger ie more open than the Monteleone's stuffy room we stayed in.

Uber or a cab ride, from what I understand, from the airport to Mandeville or Covington or Madisonville runs around $80 so... I dunno if renting a car would be better, I don't know car prices from near the airport.

Just to be clear, northbound causeway bridge is not a toll, just the southbound ($5 for a car). You could save $5 by going around the lake but, ha ha, you may use $10 worth of gas...

It has been a while. I don't know anyone that has extra JF tickets to sell. A part of me is bummed since this is probably the last opportunity I'll have to see them. I'm not the kind of fan that drives over 3 hours to see a band and stay in a hotel so I won't be going to Houston.

I'm not familiar with JazzFest and their facilities so what are the options here?

1) A cancellation.
2) A postponement using the same site later in the year.
3) A postponement that would have to be in the SuperDome because the original facility cannot be used any other time of year. However, if this is the option how do you assign actual seats to GA seats?

New Orleans will have to be outright cancelled and either put on in the Super Dome or skipped altogether.

I think if the Fairgrounds are availble and depending on when they reschedule, it would be possible to for them to just play the Fairgrounds by themselves.
Superdome would SUCK!

I think more likely than not this is the one that is outright cancelled. The only music event at the Fairgrouds is Fest, and the reason the Stones are there was for the 50th anniversary. IMO it's the SuperDome or nothing.

Funny, I pulled the plug on my whole NOLA jazzfest trip a few weeks ago, and now this happens. Stones were really the icing on the cake for the whole thing anyways, but unless they get replaced with The Who, or maybe Elton John, there will be disappointment in the air at what could've been.

A lot of people are fine with the cancelled show. What they wonder is if they'll get their money back.

U2 played the Superdome in 2017 and it was killer. But it was also full of people.

The Stones... maybe now but in 1994 next to know one showed up. Probably a big reason they haven't been back since.

The Fairgrounds are not available the rest of the time of the year. And just doing it for a Stones show is beyond ridiculous to begin with. There are better venues, the Smoothie King Center and the Superdome, which are basically connected.

I'm going to guess they will not play New Orleans on the rescheduled tour, if that even happens.

Or they could push the whole tour back a year and play the 50th anniversary Jazzfest in 2020 (the first was in 1970), just as they pushed back the 1998 British dates to 1999 when Keith broke some ribs. This year is the 50th Jazzfest, but the 50th anniversary is next year.
