GREEN BAY - If it weren't for stadium construction, country singer Kenny Chesney could have been back performing on Lambeau Field in a few weeks.
"Yes the history in Lambeau Field would have brought him here in my opinion, but in this case we couldn't do it so that's when Miller Park jumped in," said Ken Wachter, the president of PMI Entertainment Group.
Chesney will play at the Brewers' stadium in four weeks. He played at Lambeau Field in May of 2011.
Paul McCartney will also be at Miller Park in July.
The Packers say the next concert at Lambeau Field won't happen until at least 2015.
"We feel confident the stadium would be available at that time and then if all the other factors come into line that would provide for such an opportunity then that would be the next step," said Aaron Popkey, a Packers spokesperson.
However, even if the stadium is open, PMI officials who would book the event say it isn't a sure thing.
"In 2011 it was really successful, so the people in the industry know that Lambeau Field can deliver paid attendance and do the right things and it's a good place for the show," said Wachter. "You just don't know how many shows will be out there in 2015."
PMI officials say it takes about 18 months to book a stadium act. They say this winter they'll start looking more aggressively at the possibility.
"Looking ahead I don't know who is going to be on tour, nobody knows at this time," said Wachter. "Will we have opportunities? Yes, I would think so."
With only about a handful of consistent stadium tours, officials say a special event other than a concert might have to do.
"We're open to considering anything that wouldn't unnecessarily harm the field and would provide an economic impact," said Ann Patteson, the chair of the Stadium District Board.
Packers officials say stadium construction is on schedule and on budget.
