Sad news once again: The Jazz Fest is cancelled!
The official announcement reads:
“As a result of the current exponential growth of new COVID cases in New Orleans and the region and the ongoing public health emergency, we must sadly announce that the 2021 edition of the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival presented by Shell, scheduled to take place October 8–17, 2021, will not occur as planned … We now look forward to next spring, when we will present the festival during its traditional timeframe“
This tour really is a tough one for the Rolling Stones, even before it started. But I really don’t get it: why don’t people get their vaccine and play it save??? In Louisiana less than 38 percent of the population is vaccinated. WHY? I’m really puzzled.
