WWE WrestleMania 34 Revealed for New Orleans: Date, Venue and More Info

A capacity crowd of 75,167 WWE fans filled the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in 2014 for WrestleMania 30.

The WWE announced that WrestleMania will return to New Orleans in 2018.

Ticket sales for WrestleMania XXX totaled $10.5 million, making it the highest-grossing non-sporting event in the Dome's 41-year-history.

According to a report from The Times-Picayune, WrestleMania weekend in 2018 will also feature an NXT showcase on Friday, a WWE Hall of Fame ceremony on Saturday and an episode of SmackDown Live on Tuesday, with all three events at the Smoothie King Center in New Orleans. That box office take is roughly double that of Beyonce's Formation World Tour stop on September 24, the highest-grossing concert in Dome history. After all, it's a huge boost to the local economy, a big driver for tourism, and a general boon to a city's prestige. WrestleMania 33 is set to take place on April 2 with the build to the show beginning at the Royal Rumble pay-per-view. "This is a great event being hosted in one of the greatest cities in the world".

It's a quick turnaround for a host city, but not terribly surprising considering the rave reviews New Orleans got for providing a walkable, warm weather city with lots of venues and plenty of dining and hotel options.

WrestleMania 34 is still 15 months away and probably will not be discussed for a while.
