New Orleans native will celebrate hometown’s 300th birthday and the holidays
Harry Connick, Jr. has announced additional fall concert dates of the New Orleans Tricentennial Celebration tour that will continue to take him across the U.S. and also London and Paris this year. This new leg begins on November 26th with Connick Jr.’s amazing band performing songs in tribute to New Orleans as well as some of his holiday favorites. Tickets for the tour go on sale this week via his website.
When the tour stops in New Orleans on December 15th, Connick, Jr. will play a very special show at UNO Lakefront Arena to benefit the Ellis Marsalis Center for Music, which he co-founded in the Ninth Ward in the aftermath of Katrina.
Connick, Jr. has exemplified excellence in every aspect of the entertainment world. He has received recognition with multiple Grammy and Emmy Awards as well as Tony nominations for his live and recorded musical performances, his achievements on screens large and small and his appearances on Broadway as both an actor and a composer. The foundation of Connick, Jr.’s art is the music of his native New Orleans, where he began performing as a pianist and vocalist at the age of five.
