The Cajundome in Lafayette, La has been the home to hundreds of artists and concerts since opening its doors in the mid-80s. I recently attended an event in the Cajundome and while sitting there I asked myself, "How many artists have headlined a show in this venue?" So, I emailed the Cajundome's Marketing Department and I got a list of artists that headlined a concert in the Lafayette, La. venue. I can't lie to you, my first concert was in the Cajundome when I saw Tiffany and The New Kids On The Block on June 29, 1989. Did you know that Kenny Rogers was the first artist to ever headline a show in Cajundome? Yes, this country legend was the first to take the stage in 1985 and many photos are still on display in the executive offices of the Cajundome.

Since then, there have been hundreds of other artists to take the stage, and one in particular that stands out is Garth Brooks. As you may recall, the Country Music legend sold out the Cajundome on multiple nights.
