Born on the Jazz & Heritage Festival stage, and kin to both The Meters and The Neville Brothers, Dumpstaphunk’s performances combine complex funk and muscular rock arrangements with a lethal combination of three unique vocalists and two bass players. Founding member Ivan Neville’s deep connection to The Rolling Stones includes his role behind the keys with Keith Richards X-pensive Winos, in addition to an appearance on The Rolling Stones classic “Voodoo Lounge” LP.
The Rolling Stones announced the New Orleans tour stop after the band canceled their scheduled performance at Jazz Fest 2019. Mick Jagger underwent heart surgery and had been advised not to tour by his doctor.
The tour will also include all the cities from the previous postponed tour. The Rolling Stones will make stops in 15 cities across the US and Canada.
The tour follows last year’s NO FILTER dates that have taken Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Charlie Watts and Ronnie Wood back out on the road amassing rave reviews as they played to sold out stadiums throughout the UK and Europe.
Tickets for the show are on sale now, with prices starting at $100, plus fees and service charges. For tickets and information, please visit www.rollingstones.com.
