City of New Orleans planning all-star benefit for Hurricane Sandy relief

Posted By on Mon, Nov 5, 2012 at 4:57 PM

The City of New Orleans is planning a major benefit to help the Northeast as it recovers from Hurricane Sandy. No artists have been named yet, but the big show — known as the "NOLA Pay It Forward Concert" — will be held Nov. 20 at the Mahalia Jackson Theater in Armstrong Park, as announced by Mayor Mitch Landrieu's office this afternoon:

“Our thoughts and prayers are with everyone in devastated areas because we understand what it’s like to suffer through catastrophes,” said Mayor Landrieu. “The Northeast was there for us following Katrina, and while many in this region are still recovering from Isaac, New Orleans wants to pay it forward to those impacted by Sandy.”

Tickets, which are $50, go on sale Nov. 6 and can be purchased through Ticketmaster. Those who want to donate to NOLA Pay It Forward can do so through the Greater New Orleans Foundation.

We'll update as soon as we know the names of some of the performers.
