Mick Jagger Health Scare

Rollings Stones in New Orleans
The convergence of the city of New Orleans and the Rolling Stones represents an ultimate entertainment experience. The party is known to go 24 hours a day 365 days in the land of Bourbon Street, and those who secure Rolling Stones 2019 New Orleans tickets will be attending what could be the biggest party in all of the summer. The ageless Keith Richards has laid down his amazing skills in the coastal city several times before, and his knack for the late-night rockstar lifestyle fits in perfectly with the aura. Scheduling a vacation to New Orleans around purchasing Rolling Stones tickets and attending this huge concert at the Superdome is certainly an option for fans throughout North America.
The Superdome has stood as a proud beacon and futuristic-looking Stadium since it was completed and opened to the public back in 1975. Located at 1500 Sugar Bowl Drive, it recently adopted the more specific moniker Mercedes-Benz Superdome. In its early years, it hosted more small-scale performances starring the likes of Johnny Cash, Merle Haggard and Waylon Jennings. But by July 1978, the Rolling Stones were making the Superdome an anchor point on their gigantic US tour. The upcoming performance will be exactly 41 years and one day after this performance, making it additionally special and historic.
The Stones played the Superdome again in 1981, before Kiss, Prince, David Bowie, Whitney Houston and George Michael completed a lineup of marquee names throughout the 80s. The Rolling Stones played a sold-out show to nearly 60,000 in November 1999 as part of their Living Colour World Tour. The building was constructed primarily to host home games for the NFL’s New Orleans Saints, as it has done a few hundred times including the regular-season, preseason and postseason. It was rebuilt and reopened on a very special evening over a decade ago after it was badly damaged during the onslaught of Hurricane Katrina.
Indeed, the Superdome in New Orleans is on the opposite end of the spectrum from the classic Crawdaddy Club in Richmond, London, where the group played their first long-term schedule shows back in 1963. 30 studio albums, 26 live albums, 25 compilation albums and a total of 120 singles later, they are one of the most prolific bands in music history.
By 1964, they were releasing studio albums that were doing great on both sides of the Atlantic Ocean, during the very early days of the Billboard charts. Back then, it was totally common for a band to release an album and then have the album stay on the top of the charts for up to a year. By the 1970s, they were already one of the most recognized names in music. After the Stones put in an amazing amount of studio time and touring time in the 70s and 80s they were on everybody’s list, and were being showered with awards on a regular basis.

The album Voodoo Lounge was released in July 1994, and it is one of the most widely acclaimed rock ‘n roll albums of the late 20th century.
