The Saenger Theatre says
On Saturday, May 2nd, an extraordinary collection of music stars will come together for New Orleans' concert event of the year, NEVILLES FOREVER: A CELEBRATION OF THE NEVILLE BROTHERS AND THEIR MUSIC, to bid farewell to a national music treasure. This farewell concert will take place at the Saenger Theatre, and will feature performances by: the Neville Brothers (Aaron, Art, Charles, Cyril), Widespread Panic, Trombone Shorty, Galactic, Allen Toussaint, Irma Thomas, Terence Blanchard, Ivan Neville, John Boutte, Anders Osborne and Ian Neville. Additional performers will be announced in the coming weeks.

Grammy Award-winner Don Was serves as music director and will lead an all-star band backing the performers at this incredible concert event taping. Keith Wortman is the creator and executive producer of the show, who recently produced large-scale concert events, music releases, and broadcast specials honoring music icons such as Johnny Cash, Levon Helm, Gregg Allman, Mavis Staples and Emmylou Harris amongst others. Wortman and Was were the producers of last year's extraordinary concert event, The Musical Mojo of Dr. John. NEVILLES FOREVER: A CELEBRATION OF THE NEVILLE BROTHERS AND THEIR MUSIC will be filmed and recorded for multi-platform distribution throughout traditional and digital media.

"I am honored to produce such an important show celebrating the Neville Brothers. Their music has meant everything to me and fans around the world," says Wortman. "This will be one of those nights where every fan wishes they were in the building."

"The Neville Brothers are the royal family of New Orleans funk," says Was. "Individually each brother is a musical powerhouse unto himself, but when they play together they create musical magic. The fact that they've come home to New Orleans for this show makes it all the more special."
