The two hottest tickets for upcoming concerts in New Orleans are thanks to a festival and a rescheduling. Beyonce Knowles is headlining Essence Festival Fourth of July weekend, along with the empowerment seminars that Essence brings to New Orleans every year. Friday, July 5, includes Maxwell, Jill Scott, LL Cool J and Brandy. On Saturday, July 6, New Edition, Trey Songz, and Solange will entertain. And on Sunday, July 7, Beyonce and Janelle Monae headline at the festival's final night.
Mumford and Sons, for fans of the Grammy-winning folkies will appear September 16 at Mardi Gras World, a rescheduled date after the band's bass player Ted Dwane's illness earlier in the year.
