Kiss, Buffett, and Black Keys to play free concerts in N.O. for Final Four

Kiss, Buffett, and Black Keys to play free concerts in N.O. for Final Four


The lineup for a series of free shows in concert with the NCAA Men's Final Four events in New Orleans later this month reads like the headliner list for the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival or Voodoo Experience. Free concerts by Kiss, Jimmy Buffett and the Black Keys will all take place in Woldenberg Park along the Mississippi River, The Times-Picayune reports. The concerts are part of a full slate of festivities throughout the college men's basketball championship weekend. Veteran rockers Kiss will kick off "The Big Dance Concert Series" on Friday, March 30. The band last performed in New Orleans during the 2009 Voodoo Experience. The Black Keys, performing on Saturday, March 31, are a natural choice: The NCAA is using the band's "Gold on the Ceiling" as the theme music for the March Madness television promotional campaign. Buffett, who has mostly limited his Louisiana performances to Jazz Fest in recent years, will close out the concert series with a set on Sunday, April 1. More details on show times and other logistics are expected to be announced soon.
