No suitable venue available would be the default answer.

Would have probably meant no Florida or New Orleans show plus they played there on their last US tour in 2015.

This may have been the article I recalled...but I can't recall...no conspiracy theories, but quite a bit of board room handshakes and such...even MB Superdome is mentioned...way before Jazzfest was even confirmed...:

I have been to Atlanta twice for a handful of Dead shows at The Omni...other than that...everything I know about Atlanta, I know from watching COPS...No TV shows or Films come to mind that take place there...so I have no other real reference or mental picture...

Edith's former home in the Quarter was on Ursulines at the corner of Dauphine.

A whitewashed brick, two-story with green trim and a balcony.

Look for it.

Wifey just reminded me Preacher filmed one block down from us at an old bank building.

Cars were involved, so maybe a bank robbery?
