Now That Jazz Fest is Over, Check Out What's To Come at The Fillmore New Orleans

By: Michael Fulkerson

Now that the 50th anniversary of the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival has come and gone, The Fillmore New Orleans has a ton of new show announcements in the coming months.

First up, Daniel Sloss is bringing his one-man show, the aptly-titled "X", to the Fillmore NOLA on August 3. After the success of his 2 hour-long Netflix specials 'DARK' & 'Jigsaw', this stunning new live show from Scotland's award-winning comedy star is currently making headlines around the world. The "DANIEL SLOSS: X" tour has already clocked up 150+ sold out performances and keeps on expanding, with new dates selling out as fast as they can be added, so be sure to get your tickets today!

After performing the first weekend of Jazz Fest, The Head and the Heart will be back in New Orleans on September 24 with the Living Mirage Tour, presented by Alt 92.3. Their new album, Living Mirage (out on May 17), is being hailed as a "rebirth, a spirit quest of sorts," by bassist Chris Zasche, stemming from growing pains after their last album, the amicable departure of guitarist-vocalist Josiah Johnson, replaced by Matt Gervais-husband to singer-violinist Charity Rose Thielen-as well as the return of keyboardist Kenny Hensley. Tickets are on sale now.

Next up, Die Antwoord will be taking over the Fillmore NOLA on September 26 for their House of Zef North American Tour. Composed of South African artists Ninja and Yolandi Visser, the group is known for their musical and visual stylings involving elements of "zef" culture, described as modern and trashy, appropriating out-of-date, discarded cultural elements. Tickets are on sale now.

American rockers Stone Temple Pilots will be taking the stage on September 29 with special guests Rival Sons. Stone Temple Pilots have been rocking across American stages since 1989, and most recently have completed a second self-titled album that was released on March16, 2018 with Jeff Gutt as the new lead vocalist. Tickets are on sale now.

Tenacious D is headed back to New Orleans with their Post-Apocalypto the Tour 2019 on October 15. Jack Black and Kyle Gass, who call themselves the Greatest Band on Earth, will be taking their hilarious rock antics to the Fillmore NOLA for what is sure to be a sold-out show, so be sure to get your tickets today!

Finally, INCUBUS is back with their just announced 20 Years of Make Yourself & Beyond Tour, which will be in New Orleans at the Fillmore on November 26. The Grammy-nominated band will take the tour to 39 cities across the country, playing songs from that era as well as other songs spanning their career. The show will also feature special guests Le Butcherettes. Tickets go on sale Friday, May 10.

The Fillmore, a state-of-the-art 2200 capacity live entertainment venue sets a new standard for Southeastern United States music clubs. Decked out with signature Fillmore nostalgia alongside aesthetic nods to NOLA sprinkled throughout the 22,000 square foot venue, the dazzling new club only opened its doors on February 18. The newest Fillmore has embraced NOLA, and the design details within reflect the unique qualities of local architecture and material such as wrought iron gate segments and clapboard sidings used throughout the venue alongside local influences such as gas street lanterns and hints of Mardi Gras and masquerade balls. The environment encourages guests to make a night of it and enjoy a meal or light snack with inventive cocktails and craft beers available throughout the music hall and inside two luxurious lounges and bars.
