Willie Nelson, Gucci Mane, the Avett Brothers, and other stars are headed to New Orleans in 2019, where they’ll perform at the new second-floor nightclub at Harrah’s Casino. Inspired by San Francisco’s fabled hippie-era Fillmore theater, the new Fillmore New Orleans venue is set to open with a pair of shows by the Foo Fighters on Feb. 15-16 (both shows are already sold out).

The 2,200-capacity club will be operated by the Live Nation music production company. In a June interview, Live Nation chief operating officer for theaters and clubs Ben Weeden. Explained that though New Orleans has similarly sized venues, such as the Saenger Theater (which has a 2600 seat capacity) and the Mahalia Jackson Theater (which has room for 2,243), they are sit-down theaters that don’t provide the wide-open dance floor experience some traveling bands and music fans seek.

Weeden said that New Orleans sometimes loses out on shows that hop across the country because there’s no space available. The Fillmore New Orleans is meant to fill that void. Weeden also pointed out that Live Nation produces shows of all sizes in New Orleans, from 300-fan concerts at the House of Blues, which they operate, to occasional mega tours at the Superdome. Adding their own mid-sized venue completes the company’s “vertical integration” ladder.

Here’s the rest of the upcoming lineup:

  • Feb. 19 – Duran Duran
  • Feb. 21 – Blackberry Smoke
  • Feb. 22 – Gucci Mane
  • Feb. 25 – Cypress Hill / Hollywood Undead
  • Feb. 27 – Willie Nelson
  • March 1 – Dropkick Murphys
  • March 4 – Steel Panther
  • March 15 – The Avett Brothers
  • March 16 – The Avett Brothers
  • March 19 –  Nothing More and Of Mice And Men
  • March 29 – Jason Isbell and The 400 Unit
  • April 5 – STS9
  • April 6 – STS9
  • April 19 – Chevelle
  • April 26 – The Disco Biscuits
  • April 27 – The Disco Biscuits
  • May 10 – Garbage

Your support advances the Autry’s mission to share the stories of all peoples of the American West, connecting the past with the present to inspire our shared future.

The Autry Museum of the American West in Griffith Park will mark its 30th anniversary on Oct. 13 with a dinner gala featuring a tribute to the museum’s late namesake and musical performances by his longtime friend, Willie Nelson, and the country music icon’s son Lukas, it was announced Wednesday.

Between 150,000 and 250,000 visitors annually visit the museum that Gene Autry founded with his wife Jackie and their friends Joanne and Monte Hale, who was also a Western film star and country musician.

Called the Gene Autry Museum of Western Heritage when it opened in 1988, the Autry’s collection of more than 500,000 pieces of art and artifacts includes the Southwest Museum of the American Indian Collection, touted as one of the largest and most significant in the United States.

Known as “America’s Favorite Singing Cowboy,” Autry’s career as a recording artist, actor and producer spanned more than six decades. He was also an astute businessman who chaired the board of a broadcasting empire and owned the Angels baseball team. He died in 1998 at the age of 91.

Proceeds from the anniversary celebration, which will include an after-party headlined by Lukas Nelson & Promise of the Real, will benefit the museum’s on- and off-site educational programs and research.

“It is hard to believe that a little over 30 years ago, Joanne Hale and I were sitting in a dusty warehouse, in our overalls, embarking on the adventure of a lifetime helping the Cowboy realize his dream of a museum,” said Jackie Autry, founding chair of the Autry’s board of trustees.

“In those early days we could not have envisioned the scope and expansion that is our now. Gene, Joanne and Monte would be as thrilled as I am,” she said. “I know it would be particularly meaningful to Gene having Willie and Lukas join us on this very special occasion.”
