Parade/Second Line in NOLA??
 
A friend of mine told me Foo Fighters were leading a Parade or a "Second Line" in the French Quarter on Thursday Feb 14, the day before the 2/15 and 2/16 shows at the Fillmore in Harrahs. My flight arrangements will depend on whether this is happening and when. Has anyone heard or read anything official (or unofficial) regarding this?
Thanks!

I have heard the same thing and I thought I might even have read it somewhere but can’t actually find anything confirming it.

I’m flying in on Wednesday regardless ....the parade will be fun with or without them.

Hmm. Good thing I haven't booked flights yet. Are second lines on a Thursday common?

2nd lines can happen anytime and anywhere

I received a email concerning Signature memberships at the Filmore. If you join by Feb 15 : ANY MEMBERS WHO PURCHASE TICKETS TO FOO FIGHTERS WILL BE ENTERED INTO A RAFFLE THAT WILL ALLOW THEM TO RIDE ON A FLOAT IN THE PARADE TAKING PLACE FEBRUARY 14TH. FOO FIGHTERS WILL BE LEADING THE PARADE!


So... there seems to be a parade happening Feb. 14. My question would be where and what time??

If you join by Feb 15 yet the parade is the day before?

Signature membership is a HOB thing and costs $3,200 per year. Oochie.

So, I engaged in a brief online conversation with the venue. They were vague on details but confirmed the Second Line on 2/14. My research tells me most weekday Second Lines are in the evening. We fly in on 2/14 at 2:30...STRAIGHT to the French Quarter for us! Look for the weirdos chasing the parade with their luggage in hand!!

Is this from House of Blues and the membership refers to them/their chain?

Any suggestions on what time to line up for this Fillmore GA Foo Fighters show? I’m a new fan and rather short �� I know this is a new venue and looking for advice.

We normally line up about 6 a.m. the morning of, and end up on the rail. I'm not sure what time the venue will let us line up though. I think they're sending out an email in the next few weeks.

Thankfully we booked our arrival for Wednesday. Now gotta plan for a decent spot in the parade route. Maybe check out the after party if we can get in.
