GONZALES, La. (AP) - The Lamar Dixon Expo Center in Gonzales is asking Bayou Country Superfest promoters to consider moving to their venue, which is owned by the Ascension Parish government.

Superfest was held at Tiger Stadium beginning in its first year, 2010, and continuing through the past summer.

Last week, LSU announced that it would not be able to host in 2017 or 2018 due to offseason renovations to areas including bathrooms and concessions.

General Manager Kyle Rogers tells The Advocate (https://bit.ly/2bkUSSt) the expo center hasn’t hosted a music show as large as Superfest, but it welcomes more than 20,000 people per day during the Louisiana Sportsman consumer show and can handle a daily concert crowd of 50,000.

The newspaper reports production company spokeswoman declined to comment on the expo center’s offer.
