What a lineup! The Eagles, Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers, Foo Fighters and John Mayer are among the headliners to perform at next year's New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival, according to the Associated Press.
While we don't immediately think the Eags, Petty, the Foos or Mayer when we think about N.O.L.A. jazz, it will be the first year the Eagles and Tom Petty play Jazz Fest, the outdoor music event that features hundreds of Louisiana artists in such genres as jazz, gospel, rhythm and blues, Cajun and zydeco. The festival is enhanced with national acts such as the aforementioned headliners.
The bill is rounded out by Zac Brown Band, Herbie Hancock, My Morning Jacket, Bonnie Raitt, Al Green, Jill Scott and Florence + the Machine.
Hundreds of acts will perform on roughly a dozen stages over two weekends, April 27-29 and May 3-6, at the Fair Grounds Race Course in New Orleans.
Any plans to attend?
