I went to see the Gov't Mule concert at The Mahalia Jackson Theater while in town for Jazz Fest this past weekend. The venue is set up well, and the only slow point was the security check upon entering.
We bought box seats off of stub hub, and were very happy with the larger seats, and the fact that we would have waitress service while the show was going on. This was our real only complaint. Our server could be found socializing more with the bartender, than actually taking care of their guests. I know this, because I went out several times to obtain a beverage when our server was no where in site.
The layout of the theatre for a concert was good, but they were a bit light on security inside the venue. The concert was great, and I would definitely see a show here again. There was ample bars set up to handle the crowd.
We couldn't find a cab, and ended up walking back about a mile and a half to our hotel. It would of been nice for them to have something set up for tourists, vs. shuffling them off to another area to try and flag down a cab.
