Rolling Stones July 14 concert postponed until July 15

A few moments ago, the Mercedes-Benz Superdome took to Twitter to announce that The Rolling Stones, who were scheduled to bring their No Filter Tour to New Orleans on Sunday, July 14, will now perform on Monday, July 15.

The postponement is the result of the severe weather the city will experience this weekend due to Tropical Storm Barry.

“Due to the weather forecast, the Rolling Stones show scheduled for Sunday, July 14 at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome has been moved to Monday, July 15. All tickets will be honored for the new date. Stay tuned to official Stones channels for any further updates,” the Dome tweeted.

The band itself also took to social media to express a message of support. “UPDATE FROM NEW ORLEANS: Due to the weather we’re moving Sunday’s Superdome show to Monday,” they said. “Hang onto your tickets, they will be honored on July 15. We’re here with you — we’ll get through this together.”

As previously reported by OffBeat, The Rolling Stones have invited New Orleans’ The Soul Rebels and Ivan Neville’s Dumpstaphunk to be opening acts.
