BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -

The weather didn't stop the final night of the Bayou Country Superfest, as a rain delay halted the show for a while, but Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert didn't let that cut the party short at Tiger Stadium.

Many people finished jamming out with their rain gear on.

With East Baton Rouge Parish under a tornado watch, high winds and rain poured on concertgoers Sunday night.

The two-day event steered clear of adverse conditions on Saturday, but rain started to pour down during Lambert's set. She performed an abbreviated set list, but stayed outside and sang in front of the crowd when she had the option to do her set under the stage's canopy.

Officials said more than 125,000 people visited LSU Tiger Stadium during the Memorial Day weekend for the Taylor Swift concert and the two-day Bayou Country Superfest.

Next year's event is scheduled for May 28 and 29.
