A week before Baylor’s Diadeloso celebration, no headliner has been announced.

Diadeloso chair Pauline Minnaar said the delay was a publicity strategy to draw attention to the other events. However, a tweet from the band may have ruined the surprise.

A tweet posted Tuesday at 9:33 p.m. by Five for Fighting singer John Ondrasik announced Five for Fighting coming to Baylor for Diadeloso.

“Just locked in a last minute gig at @Baylor next Thursday Apr. 18th. What Up Bears? #54F,” the tweet read.

According to the tweet, the performance was booked last minute.

As stated in the Lariat article on Wednesday, Baylor Student Government had made it easier for Baylor Chamber of Commerce, who hosts Diadeloso, to secure funds to hire a headlining artist for Diadeloso.

Baylor Chamber of Commerce president TJ Hales declined to confirm or deny Five for Fighting’s appearance at Diadeloso.

At the time of publication Five for Fighting and his manager could not be reached for comment.
