    Wow, that's pretty surprising. They sell out two nights out here at the Fox in Oakland with ease, and based on how much they tour they likely do well everywhere they go. Wonder why those shows aren't selling.
    its New Orleans...;-)

      The shows being on a Monday and Tuesday is the reason that I am not going. The shows in Oakland are on a Friday and a Saturday. There are no other stops on the tour where they are playing two nights early in the week and precious few shows they are playing anywhere early in the week. Whoever is in charge of booking the tour should know better.

              January is a tough month for tourism here in NOLA. After holidays and before Mardi Gras. There are not enough locals into TTB to sellout The Saenger for two nights on a Mon and Tues, especially at the prices that they charge. If the shows were later in the year and/or on the weekend they'd sell better. Not stopping me from going both nights! I prefer to go to shows during the week. Less people out so easier to get a drink or bite to eat before the shows.

                By the way Festy, I officially volunteer to help build the cubes this year (mine are more readable than yours) and if I'm in on the process I can minimize my personal conflicts (which should be good for everyone, right?)

                  This is spot on. I wouldn't be surprised if they were only playing one midweek show and it didn't sell out.

                  There ARE a lot of people who would go to see this band two nights in a row despite the high ticket price, but, most likely live out of state and would need fo be enticed to travel to the shows. Being I'm the mode of the week drastically reduces the number of people willing to do that and opposed to a Fri and Saymt night run.

                      Keith Spera is going to look pretty foolish and gullible if the “Stones” are not playing.

                            Refresh my frequently malfunctioning memory, please. How long after the initial lineup is the schedule for both weekends announced? I'm going both weekends, but asking for a friend.

                              When the lineup is announced, it's by day. BTW, I coined the term "dailies" in reference to the jazzfest many years ago, back when we got the lineup and later the dailies and later the cubes.. We don't usually see the cubes, or daily schedule, until some time in March. But swag will have the definitive answer! After he gets home from the game!

                                The cubes should be out March 26, or maybe the 25th if First Thursday pushes it up a day.
