On Monday evening, people made their way into the Mercedes-Benz Superdome for a long-awaited performance: The Rolling Stones in New Orleans.
The Stones had to cancel their 50th annual New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival jazz performance this spring because Mick Jagger had to undergo heart valve replacement surgery. The band then rescheduled and was supposed to play on Sunday night. However, because of Tropical Storm Barry, that performance was pushed back yet another night.
Finally, the Stones ended up playing in New Orleans. It was the first time they have played in the Crescent City since 1994. Their first show in New Orleans was in 1978.
