Big name music acts streaming to New Orleans



Huge name musical performers are lining up to play in New Orleans.  Last night Miley Cyrus kicked off a series of big concerts in the coming weeks and months.

"If somebody is out there that we think works for New Orleans, we are going to go after it as much as we can to make sure that we can get it for us," Smoothie King Center and Mercedes-Benz Superdome General Manager Alan Freeman told WWL First News.  

He said they are pleased with their recent success, but not resting.

"We are working on a pretty big show for June... If we get it, it will be something that a lot of folks will be very, very happy for," the GM insisted.

He said it would be premature to say much more, but they are also working on another show that could sell out the Superdome... like One Direction has done for a performance in September.

"We've got some other things working for the fall," Freeman said.  "We've got four or five others...that are in a holding pattern right now.  We've been contacted with hold dates for this, and hold dates for that."

Here is a list of upcoming concerts in New Orleans:

Mar 21     Elton John (Smoothie King Center)
