The New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival today announced times and stages for the 2019 lineup, the 50th Jazz Fest.

The Rolling Stones are the centerpiece for the fest's milestone show, and they will begin their set at 5 p.m. on Thursday, May 2. The Stones will appear on the Acura stage, and the band is the only performance scheduled for that time.

The limited number of Rolling Stones tickets sold out early on, but the fest is releasing a few more for sale. They will be available starting at 10 a.m. tomorrow at $250 each, and will likely be bought up very quickly. Tickets can be purchased via www.nojazzfest.com and www.ticketmaster.com. Pending availability, tickets may also be bought at the Smoothie King Center box office.

The fest opens Thursday, April 25, with the likes of Earth, Wind & Fire playing at 5:25 p.m. on the Acura stage, while Alanis Morissette performs across the Fairgrounds at the Gentilly stage at 5:40 p.m.

Katy Perry makes her Jazz Fest debut Saturday, April 27 at 5:40 p.m. on the Acura stage. Another artist making her Jazz Fest debut is Diana Ross, performing the following Saturday, May 4, at 5:45 p.m. on the Gentilly stage.
