Tickets for the second Thursday of this year's New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival — featuring a headlining set from The Rolling Stones — went on sale at 10 a.m. Thursday, Jan. 17 for Louisiana residents.
A long line wrapping around the Superdome formed early this morning. (Lines were open at midnight.)
The Rolling Stones are headed to New Orleans for the 50th New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival.
Gambit's Brandin DuBos snagged a time-lapse video shot at 10:30 a.m., half an hour after the ticket line opened.

The box office was scheduled to be open until 6 p.m. tonight.
