Country music’s biggest stars are packing up their six strings and heading to Baton Rouge this weekend for the 2015 Bayou Country Superfest. Widely considered one of the genre’s biggest collaborative outlets for live music, the BCS will feature headlining performances from Kenny Chesney, Blake Shelton, Brantley Gilbert and Miranda Lambert this year. Fans still searching for tickets to this year’s festival will also be pleasantly greeted with falling ticket prices on the secondary market.
According to TicketIQ, the average price for 2015 Bayou Country Superfest tickets over its two-day affair this Saturday and Sunday at LSU Tiger Stadium is now just $77.74. The festival’s first day currently owns a secondary ticket average of $71.35 and the cheapest ticket to the opening day of music is $19. Chesney and Gilbert will perform on Saturdaynight and will be preceded by sets from Tyler Farr, Colt Ford and Kristian Bush of Sugarland.
On Sunday, Bayou Country Superfest tickets average at $87.44 and get-in price starts at $27. Prior to headliners Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert, Kip Moore, David Nail and Cassadee Pope all take the stage.
Taylor Swift will also be in Louisiana this week as she begins the North American leg of her 1989 Tour. The pop megastar is slated to play CenturyLink Center on Wednesday night and will hit LSU Tiger Stadium Friday night. The “Blank Space” singer’s Tiger Stadium gig currently owns an average ticket price of $129.52 and $47 get-in price on the secondary market.
Though not officially on the 2015 BCS bill, Swift could return to her country roots and make a guest appearance at this year’s festival. She’ll have significant downtime between her Tiger Stadium show and next stop at Ford Field in Detroit on May 30, making it highly possible that she’ll grace the stage twice in Baton Rouge this weekend.
