Kenny Chesney, Jason Aldean and Florida Georgia Line can help welcome the Bayou Country Superfest back to Baton Rouge because of the 10th anniversary on May 25-26.
They will combine Dan + Shay, Kane Brown, Cassadee Pope, Brett Young and Chase Rice in the Memorial Day weekend festival, that yields to Tiger Stadium on the LSU campus in Baton Rouge following two decades in the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans.
Other ticket choices incorporate the standing-room-only”Golden Horseshoe” area next to the point, in addition to the overall entrance”Tiger Plaza.” Reserved parking areas also go on sale February 21.
All 3 headliners have made multiple looks at previous versions of Bayou Country Superfest. Come this spring, Aldean will have achieved at five of those 10 Superfests. He was showcased in the festival’s introduction in 2010, then returned in 2012, 2014 and 2016.
Chesney also played that the festival’s first year, also has been back in 2011 and 2015.
Florida Georgia Line formerly appeared in 2014. Festival Productions and AEG also Create the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival. The inaugural Bayou Country Superfest in Tiger Stadium at 2010 featured Taylor Swift, that had not yet completely transitioned from state to pop songs, in her stadium headlining concert, combined with Chesney, Aldean and Keith Urban. That year, the festival introduced Friday to its conventional Saturday-Sunday program so as to adapt a halt to Strait’s”Cowboy Rides Away” farewell tour. Overall attendance for its three-night 2014 BCS has been 135,000, the most in the festival’s history.
Attendance in 2015 totaled 125,000, thanks in big part to Swift’s return as a portion of this tour for album & her.
Around 100,000 fans passed through the gates of this three-night 2016 Superfest at Tiger Stadium.
That August, since the festival’s producers sought a brand new, three-year contract to stage the festival in Tiger Stadium, LSU officials said the centre would not be accessible in 2017 or 2018 due to important renovations scheduled for the weeks between soccer seasons.
Made to locate a new residence for 2017, manufacturers inquired about a few college soccer stadiums through the Southeastern Conference. Finally they settled on the Superdome.
Attendance for its first BCS at New Orleans, that included two nights in the Dome including Blake Shelton, Miranda Lambert, Thomas Rhett, Brooks & Dunn, Hank Williams Jr., Rascal Flatts and Brett Eldredge, and a free series at Champions Square, totaled around 60,000.
The change from an outside arena in Baton Rouge into an indoor arena in New Orleans might have turned away some fans. During its seven years at Baton Rouge, tailgating on the LSU campus was always a portion of their Superfest experience. Downtown New Orleans was much less conducive to tailgating.
In 2018, Bayou Country Superfest climbed back to one night at the Superdome for what was basically a standalone concert from the not-entirely-retired Strait. With Strait topping a powerful bill that featured Chris Stapleton, Little Big Town, Kacey Musgraves and Midland, all 53,000 available tickets have been offered.
Sponsors of those 2019 Bayou Country Superfest comprise the Louisiana Department of Culture, Recreation & Tourism; the town of Baton Rouge; Visit Baton Rouge; and Bud Light.
The best way to bring the festival back to Baton Rouge allegedly included numerous fiscal incentives in countless thousands of dollars.
