Billboard wrote that Tulane “is believed to be the first college in the U.S. to present an annual concert series on this level.” Every year the Tipping Point lineup includes legendary musical acts and a variety of New Orleans’ most talented performers.
The magazine also highlighted Tipping Point executive producer UpperWest Music Group, whose co-founder, Greg Williamson, is married to Tulane alumna Kate Yulman (NC ’05). UpperWest Music Group has produced other concerts such as Love Rocks NYC, and considers philanthropy part of its core mission.
This year’s stellar program includes headliners Mavis Staples, Chris Robinson, Anders Osborne, Larkin Poe, Jimmy Vivino, Amy Helm and Tash Neal, as well as local legends George Porter Jr., Ivan Neville and Cyril Neville. Actor and comedian Jeff Garlin (“The Goldbergs,” “Curb Your Enthusiasm”) will host the event. The Tipping Point, which will be held Friday, Nov. 1, at The Fillmore New Orleans, will be musically directed by Eric Krasno and will feature Mark Mullins and Levee Horns.
Tulane faculty and staff can buy tickets for $100 each, a $50 discount. (Click here to buy faculty and staff tickets.)
Producers promise that the 2019 Tipping Point will be a memorable night for enjoying music, friends, Tulane and New Orleans.
