Iconic New Orleans music venue Tipitina’s is hosting a livestream benefit show this weekend to help raise funds as the coronavirus pandemic has paused live music, and subsequently the venue business.
Trent Reznor, Phish’s Mike Gordon and Tedeschi Trucks Band have been added to the star-studded lineup — with Reznor and Gordon telling stories, not performing — which includes previously announced performers Galactic, Willie Nelson, Widespread Panic, Jon Batiste & Stay Human featuring Trombone Shorty, the Revivalists, Big Freedia, Billy Strings, Tank & the Bangas, Preservation Hall Jazz Band featuring Allen Toussaint, The Radiators featuring Gregg Allman, Dumpstaphunk, Ivan Neville, the Soul Rebels, Dinosaur Jr., Funky Meters, Professor Longhair, Fats Domino, Dr. John, Manu Chao, St. Paul & the Broken Bones and more.
The three-hour show will also feature backstage stories about the venue. Additionally, fans can also enter to win prizes by donating prior to the show via Fandiem.
The “Save Tip’s” free event will stream on Tipitina’s website and via nugs.tv on Saturday (Nov. 14) at 9 p.m. ET.
