Ali-Spinks in da Dome (Video)


On Friday (6.03), America and the boxing community lost a great. Muhammad Ali died at the age of 74 years-old according to a family spokesperson. Ali was a man who suffered several setbacks, but always pulled himself off the canvas and rose to higher heights—like the City of New Orleans. On September 15, 1978, Ali traveled to NOLA to defeat Leon Spinks and win the WBA Heavyweight belt for the third time.


Bey to Bring her Honey to NOLA


Last year, Beyonce spent a lot of time in Louisiana during shoots for her “Formation” and “Lemonade” videos, but the Crescent City did not make the cut for a tour to support the new projects. On Thursday (5.05), the Queen Bey remedied that omission, adding a NOLA stop to the Formation World Tour.


Guns n F'n Roses to Rock NOLA July 31st

The 16-3 victory of the University of Nevada Wolfpack set an FBS record as the only school to win same bowl game four straight times.


Ragin' Cajuns to Spice Up New Orleans Bowl Again
