Tours are available daily Tuesday–Sunday, October 1–30, at 2 p.m. On Halloween Sunday, October 31, three tours will be offered, at 11 a.m., 2 p.m. and 3 p.m. “Historic Haunts” is intended for an adult audience. Admission is $5, free for THNOC members.

The LaLaurie Mansion – New Orleans French Quarter

This building is reputedly the most haunted site in the entire city of New Orleans, formerly the home of Madame Delphine LaLaurie and her 3rd husband Dr. Leonard Louis LaLaurie. Presently owned by Nicolas Cage, it has demonstrated more activity to guests on tours than any other site in the city. It has a history steeped in horror and blood, and the metaphysical “stains” do not wash out easily.

Eric Clapton coming to the New Orleans Arena in 2010

By Keith Spera, The Times-Picayune
December 07, 2009, 4:09PM
Eric Clapton is coming to New Orleans in 2010.

 
Guitar virtuoso Eric Clapton is scheduled to perform at the New Orleans Arena on Saturday, March 6, 2010. Opening the show is Roger Daltrey, the singer of The Who.
Tickets go on sale this Saturday, Dec. 12 at 10 a.m. via Ticketmaster and on Monday, Dec. 14 at the arena box office. Tickets are priced at $51.50, $72.50 and $91.50 plus service charges.
The New Orleans stop is one of only 11 North American dates announced so far for Clapton’s 2010 headlining tour. These dates are in addition to three shows with Jeff Beck and a European tour with Steve Winwood.
On recent tours, Clapton’s band has included at least one other guitarist. But according to Clapton’s Web site, he will be the only guitarist on stage for these shows, backed by drummer Steve Gadd, bassist Willie Weeks, keyboardists Chris Stainton and Walt Richmond, and singers Michelle John and Sharon White.
The Clapton announcement adds to the tally of major concerts coming to the New Orleans area in 2010. If early trends are any indication, next year may be as busy a concert season locally as was 2009. In ’09, the New Orleans Arena presented more concerts than any year in its decade-long history.
