AXIAL TILT - A Grateful Dead Celebration at Jazzfest in New Orleans!

The Grateful Dead is a true American original. Born in San Francisco in 1965 and still creating music in various forms more than 50 years later, the Grateful Dead represents the most successful example yet of a band blending both rock and jazz in a live format accessible to -- and loved by -- millions. 

The band's now-legendary multi-hour forays into musical exploration via in-the-moment improvisation became a beacon for millions of Deadheads who traveled millions of miles to spend thousands of nights with the Grateful Dead, experiencing their one-of-a-kind sharing of energy between band and audience. 

We believe it fitting to celebrate this truly unique American original in much the same way we celebrate some of this country's most beloved jazz artists, and to share the celebration with folks who appreciate the Grateful Dead's enduring musical legacy as much as they do those of the greatest musical artists New Orleans -- and the rest of the country -- has ever produced.

Happening at one of the most beautiful and intimate venues in New Orleans and featuring some of the most well-known names in the extended Grateful Dead family (including the Dead's own audio guru Howard Danchik mixing the sound both nights), AXIAL TILT will be an all-out party in honor of the music, life, harmony, and spirit of togetherness inspired and Furthured by America's own Grateful Dead.

The Fine Print:

A limited number of 2-night GA passes are available, and an even smaller number of 2-night VIP passes are available including both a limited edition Stanley Mouse original poster designed for these shows and a private catered reception with the band on 4/28 before the show!

A limited number of single-night tickets will be available at the box office each night beginning at 8:30PM, and will be priced at $60. All 2-night GA and VIP passes must be purchased by April 15, 2018 (if still available).

NOTE: In true Grateful Dead spirit and given the intimate nature of the venue, we want to do all we can to insure that actual fans are in attendance, not scalper clients. Therefore, we have established a 4 ticket per purchaser per show limit (2 per purchaser for V.I.P. tickets).

By purchasing a ticket to this event, the buyer agrees to be filmed, videotaped and/or otherwise recorded for possible inclusion in webcast, digital download, DVD and/or CD release, and/or any other exploitation of the event without limitation or compensation of any kind, and agrees to allow organizers to use his/her image and/or likeness without limitation or compensation of any kind.
