Keith And Guy Live From The Battlefield
Guy and Keith headed out the Chalmette battlefield where in 1815 the Battle of New Orleans took place. Keith poignantly treated fans to a live, acoustic version of Break These Chains. The two guys joked they should be at work instead of taking such an impromptu stage in the New Orleans sunshine.
The Battle of New Orleans was a major victory in the war of 1812. Andrew Jackson led a force of outnumbered American combatants against the much larger British force, commanded by Admiral Alexander Cochrane and General Edward Pakenham. The British Army was prevented from seizing New Orleans and the vast territory the United States had acquired with the Louisiana Purchase.
