NEW ORLEANS (October 8, 2018) – Mardi Gras kicks off early next year with
Foo Fighters and the February grand opening of The Fillmore, a
state-of-the-art 2200 capacity live entertainment venue setting 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
venue will host legendary band Foo Fighters for a two-night music and party
extravaganza February 15-16, 2019.
Opening the performances will be very special guests Trombone Shorty &
Orleans Avenue on Feb. 15th, and Preservation Hall Jazz Band on
“We couldn’t be more excited to have Foo Fighters come to town to highlight
our opening nights,” said Ben Weeden, COO Live Nation Club & Theaters.
“With Trombone Shorty and the Preservation Hall guys opening up, we feel so
honored to be able to combine NOLA’s rich musical heritage with one of the
world’s most popular artists – it’s the perfect way to get things started.”
Tickets for these extraordinary nights go on-sale to the general public
Friday October 12 at 10AM CST. General admission tickets will be available
on a show by show basis, and live music fans looking to elevate their
experiences at the venue are able to contact the club’s Premium Seating
“The Live Nation team promised that The Fillmore New Orleans was going to
host some of the top talent in entertainment,” said Dan Real, Caesars
Entertainment regional president-south and Harrah’s New Orleans general
manager. “With the announcement of Foo Fighters as the grand opening act,
it is obvious that this theater is going to impress, and we are thrilled to
welcome fans to The Fillmore at Harrah’s New Orleans in February.
Additional acts scheduled to perform in 2019 will be announced October 15.
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. The environment encourages guests to make a night of it – come early;
stay late; 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.
