In what could be the concert feel-good story of the week, the annual country music festival is providing Louisiana soldiers with tickets to this year’s festival and is offering discounts to all military personnel.
Scheduled for May 28-29 of Memorial Weekend in Baton Rouge at Louisiana State University’s Tiger Stadium, the second Bayou Country Superfest features Kenny Chesney, Tim McGraw, Sugarland, Zac Brown Band and Trace Adkins among the event’s all-star lineup.
The good deed comes from Superfest organizers working with the Warrior Transition Unit (WTU) based at Fort Polk to provide the unit’s servicemen and women with complimentary tickets to this year’s event. The WTU works with soldiers and other military personnel who have been wounded while serving the nation’s armed forces.
“The Fort Polk Warrior Transition unit is extremely grateful for the support of the Bayou Country Superfest in facilitating the healing and transition of our wounded, ill, or injured soldiers,” Maj. Robert Rodock, WTU commander said.
The Superfest is also offering a 40 percent discount to all military members on tickets purchased in Tiger Plaza sections 422 and 423. Since your average Superfest ticket carries a $50 price tag, that 40 percent discount means soldiers can purchase ducats for only $30 per plus a $3 venue fee. Military personnel interested in taking the Superfest up on its offer should contact their Morale Welfare and Recreation Officers.
In its second year, the Bayou Country Superfest is produced by Festival Productions BCM along with AEG Live / The Messina Group. For more information, including which Baton Rouge hotels are offering discounts to Superfest fans, check out BayouCountrySuperfest.com.
