It’s a show twenty-three years in the making!
On Friday, July 9, The Mixed Nuts will perform a very special concert performing the music of Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake at Rock ‘N’ Bowl in New Orleans. The show features the vocal talents of Jessie Dupre of The Mixed Nuts who will star as Britney, as well as our friend and fellow musician David Ancar who will take on the role of Justin Timberlake. The show is massive in scale and promises to be the biggest event of Summer 2021.
When tickets went on sale on Wednesday, April 14 at 5pm, the show went viral on social media! In just 15 hours, the entire show was TOTALLY sold out, including all VIP tables and seating! “There’s never been a demand for an event like this in the history of The Rock ‘N’ Bowl, ” said owner John Blancher on Thursday. “Clearly, New Orleans is ready to have a great time this Summer!”
It’s no secret that the music of Justin Timberlake and Britney Spears defines a generation of music listeners. The two artists have collectively sold over 200 million albums worldwide, not including JT’s days as a member of NSYNC. The 2021 documentary “Framing Britney Spears” is one of the most downloaded documentaries of the past year and has caused a surge of interest again in Britney’s music.
WCA Entertainment CEO and show director Chuck Credo is no stranger to tribute performances. Since starting The New Orleans Beatles Festival in 2002, Credo has helmed multiple tribute performances, including the popular “Billy Joel Vs. Elton John” touring show. Credo on the sell out: “To see this show sell out in a few hours was incredible to watch live. I’d personally like to thank the 200 people who bought tickets between 1AM and 6AM – that’s some true fans right there! The demand and interest for this show has been massive. We begin rehearsals in a few weeks and we can’t wait to bring the fun to New Orleans in July.”
Beau St. Pierre, music director for the show, commented, “Get ready for your faces to get melted off!”
While the July 9th “Britney Vs Justin” show is totally sold out, be on the lookout for several chances to win tickets in the coming weeks, as well as new dates and locations.
