Scrambling to fill lineup

Posted: Updated:

Cajundome officials are scrambling to find new acts after country singers George Strait and Luke Bryan canceled their stops in Lafayette at the last minute.  

They both are playing at the Bayou Country Superfest in Baton Rouge over Memorial Day weekend. As part of their performance agreement, they signed a contract limiting them from performing within 175 miles of Baton Rouge and within an eleven month period, which means Lafayette is now stuck filling in the voids.

According to Pam Deville, Assistant Director at the Cajundome, George Strait was on the books for about 18 months and Luke Bryan for about nine months. But last month she was told by their promoter they would no longer be coming to Lafayette. Since no contracts were signed with the Cajundome, the singers were free to play where they pleased. 

Deville says that poses a problem because most entertainers already have their schedules for next year mapped out leaving the Cajundome stuck with finding someone to fill the gaps. The George Strait performance at the Cajundome was supposed to be the venue to his final tour kick off. No replacements have been announced.
