Hi everyone, we're really sorry to announce this, but after being led to believe otherwise by both the artist and the promoter, this show is not going to happen. We were just as excited and optimistic as y'all were that this would work out, and are deeply disappointed and truly sorry that it didn't due to issues beyond our control. We are currently processing refunds to everyone who purchased a ticket. Please check the email you used to purchase the ticket for the refund confirmation. If you haven't received your refund by tomorrow morning please contact us at events@neworleansairlift.org. Please give us until tomorrow morning before reaching out. We hope to see you at other Music Box Village performances in the future, and we deeply thank you all for your ongoing support.

Tomorrow!! #Free :) costumes highly encouraged!! Visit the bar for our new #cocktail specialist Jesi’s hot spiced cider :) . . . #trickortreat #soundart #familytime . . . #halloweencostume #neworleans #bywater
