Dr. John to Headline First 2012 Live on the Green

Legendary New Orleans singer/songwriter Dr. John will headline the first 2012 Live On the Green performance, which takes place Thursday, September 6.

The Rock & Roll Hall of Famer has been delivering his uniquely New Orleans-rooted psychedelic funk and rock since his first album Gris Gris in 1968. He also performed as a session player on albums by Van Morrison, Aretha Franklin, and the Rolling Stones. His 2012 album Locked Down was recorded in Nashville and produced by the Black Keys’ Dan Auerbach.

“Dr. John has been a part of music history for more than four decades, giving him a unique multi-
generational audience,” said Live on the Green Exec. Producer Lester Turner. “His show blends voodoo rhythms, rock, rhythm & blues with
his New Orleans roots. He is the ideal artist to kick off a lineup focused on a variety of musical styles,
generations and qualities; one which aims to celebrate the best of what’s happening nationally and locally.”

The annual late summer-fall concert series is held every Thursday, September 6 – October 11 at Public Square Park in front of Metro Courthouse. The full lineup for 2012 will be announced Thursday, July 5. More info here.
