Yes - Living Colour is playing Tipitina's uptown - holy shit. Be there.




Living Colour formed out of New York City in the mid-'80s. Their incendiary performances at CBGBs became the stuff of legend. The Rolling Stones' Mick Jagger witnessed one of the shows and was so impressed that he insisted upon producing a demo for the fledgling band and later helped them score a record deal. Living Colour's legacy has broken through obstacles of language, distance and culture. Living Colour's debut album Vivid went double platinum and garnered the band a Grammy Award. Over the course of their career, they released three critically acclaimed albums (Vivid, Time's Up and Stain), which sold over 4 million copies combined, earned a pair of Grammy Awards, two MTV Music Video Awards and tore up stages around the world. In 2007, Living Colour's hit song "Cult Of Personality" was selected for Guitar Hero III. The game has gone onto sell over 14 million copies, introducing the band to a new generation of fans.
