Ludacris, Snoop Dogg Announce Super Bowl Weekend Concerts in New Orleans
In addition to new decorations on our buildings and Bud Light on our hotels, the Super Bowl is also giving the Crescent City a chance to see a pair of pillars of hip-hop in concert. Today, Snoop Dogg and Ludacris announced they'll bring nimble neologism-inclined acts to New Orleans for separate concerts on the weekend leading up to the HarBowl.
Snoop Dogg is set to play House of Blues for a midnight show on Sat., Feb. 2. The veteran rapper is no stranger to New Orleans, having done turns at Voodoo Music Experience and beyond. Snoop's ever-changing stage name became Snoop Lion recently. But given this show's billing as Dogg, it's apparently back in the pound. That's probably a good thing, seeing as how Bunny Wailer wasn't happy with how the man born Calvin Broadus was portraying Rastafarian culture. Tickets for the concert go on sale at 5 p.m. Friday, and are listed at $67 each here.
On Friday, Feb. 1, Ludacris is set to roll out at Tipitina's (501 Napoleon Ave.). The rapper is set to release a long-delayed album titled Ludaversal in the first part of 2013. But we've already heard "Representin'," which features Kelly Rowland. With a fully reunited Destiny's Child rumored to be appearing with Beyonce during the Super Bowl halftime show, a guest spot could be in the works. General admission tickets are $75, and VIP spots are $150. They're available here.
