After Fleetwood Mac became the second band to cancel their headlining performance at this year’s New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival, Widespread Panic have been added to the May 2 schedule of the iconic gathering.
Fleetwood Mac, who were already replacing The Rolling Stones, were forced to cancel their appearance due to Stevie Nicks battling the flu.
Jazz Fest has also announced a change in this year’s ticketing policy, as May 2, the second Thursday of the festival, will no longer have a specific ticket. General admission tickets for the second weekend will now be valid on that day, and May 2 will now be a second “Locals Thursday,” along with April 25, where Louisiana residents can get discounted day passes at the gate. Ticket holders for May 2 can also opt for a full refund.
