Fleetwood Mac Replacing Rolling Stones at New Orleans Jazz Fest

The Rolling Stones will be on the shelf for a bit of time while Mick Jagger recovers from heart valve replacement surgery, which means someone will have to step in on their festival tour dates.

Enter Fleetwood Mac.

The New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival has just announced that Fleetwood Mac has been added to the festival’s 50th anniversary lineup on May 2. Tickets are on sale now at Ticketmaster.com.
