"VOODOO MUSIC EXPERIENCE" is returning home to NEW ORLEANS for one day.
The huge event was originally scheduled for HALLOWEEN weekend in NEW ORLEANS' CITY PARK, but was moved to MEMPHIS following the tragedy of HURRICANE KATRINA. In an historic move, the first of two back-to-back concerts on OCTOBER 29-30 returns home to NEW ORLEANS at RIVERVIEW PARK as a tribute event for the heroic hurricane relief efforts of countless individuals. The NEW ORLEANS show on 10/29 will be an invitation-only celebration for police, firefighters, National Guard, military, and countless others who have aided in the recovery efforts of the city.
The second VOODOO date remains in MEMPHIS on SUNDAY, OCTOBER 30th at AUTOZONE PARK.
VOODOO MUSIC FESTIVAL Producer STEPHEN REHAGE said, "In the course of the past few weeks, the outpouring of support from not only the music industry, but from people from all walks of life, who want to come together to celebrate NEW ORLEANS has been tremendous. The ability to move forward in two cities -- with so much music history -- is overwhelming to everyone involved with this year's event. We want to thank all the artists who have shown their support by honoring their commitment to this historic event. We all look forward to making this weekend one to remember."
MARC GEIGER from the WILLIAM MORRIS AGENCY adds, "We've always supported the VOODOO MUSIC EXPERIENCE. This year, as we watched the events unfold, we knew that we had to do more to make this year special for music fans in both NEW ORLEANS and MEMPHIS. We're glad to be a part of bringing the music back to NEW ORLEANS."
