New Orleans will now be featured as part of the 2017 Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve with Ryan Seacrest. Local Representative for Dick Clark Productions Gary Solomon says this is the first time in the show’s history that there will be another countdown in the Central time zone. He says it’s a real game changer for the Crescent City.

“Dick Clark’s is really going to show off New Orleans, our culture, our having a good time New Year’s and kind of year round with things like featuring the Allstate Sugar Bowl Parade.”

Solomon says a number of celebrities will perform and the biggest feature will be the crowd having a good time in the French Quarter.

“We can be on the same playing field as Times Square in New York, that Jackson Square in New Orleans is the next time zone over and the obvious pick, is a real win.”

Solomon says Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin' eve will cut to New Orleans throughout the five and a half hour nationally televised show. He says viewers will feel like they’re a part of the New Orleans culture.

“We come to New Orleans for a very extended duration of approximately 10 minutes or so where there is a great performance in New Orleans and then we watch the Fleur De Lis on top of Jack’s Brewery drop.”
