A storm is threat'ning: Weather forces Rolling Stones to postpone New Orleans show
Written by Classic Rock 93.9 on July 12, 2019
Rolling Stones fans with tickets to the band’s concert this Sunday, July 15, at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans this Sunday will have to be satisfied with seeing them one day later.
The British rock legends have postponed the show until Monday out of safety concerns because of Tropical Storm Barry, which currently is off the Louisiana coast.
A statement posted on The Stones’ official website reads, “Due to the weather we’re moving Sunday’s Superdome show to Monday. Hang onto your tickets, they will be honored on July 15. We’re here with you — we’ll get through this together.”
The Rolling Stones originally were slated to play the Big Easy on May 2 at the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival. Their appearance was canceled when the start of their North American No Filter Tour was postponed because of frontman Mick Jagger‘s heart-valve surgery. When the trek was rescheduled, a new day in New Orleans was announced for July 14 at the Superdome.
The group’s No Filter trek is mapped out through an August 31 show in Miami Gardens, Florida.

7/15 — New Orleans, LA, Mercedes-Benz Superdome
7/19 — Jacksonville, FL, TIAA Bank Field
7/23 — Philadelphia, PA, Lincoln Financial Field
