It's about to be 2017, can you believe it? There are so many New Year's Eve traditions, one of which is the annual "Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve". This year, they've expanded to include the Central Time Zone, and have chosen New Orleans to be the place!

“Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve with Ryan Seacrest 2017” will appropriately have a fleur-de-lis drop near Jackson Square to ring in the New Year.

From the official press release -

Known for its vibrant culture and deep musical roots, New Orleans is the ideal choice to host our first-ever Central Time Zone countdown. We are excited to expand our tradition of ringing in the New Year to the ‘Big Easy'.

The Allstate Fan Fest will serve as the backdrop for “Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve with Ryan Seacrest 2017” in New Orleans. For the past eleven years, Allstate has taken over New Orleans before the Allstate Sugar Bowl by hosting family-friendly games and activities, pep rallies and musical performances.

As of now, I can't find information about who will be playing that night or who will be hosting. I'll update this story as soon as I find out!
