Live Nation Announces First Ever Drive-In Concert Tours
It's a sign of the times, and a sign that fans are still hungry for live music.
Live Nation just announced it's first-ever concert series where a drive-in is the venue.
AP Entertainment reports the concert series, which will take place in July, will feature artists including Brad Paisley, Jon Pardi, Darius Rucker and Nelly.
The artists are part of lineups across nine shows happening July 10-12 in Nashville, Tennessee; Maryland Heights, Missouri; and Noblesville, Indiana.
Brad Paisley will be performing on all nine dates.
While these shows aren't happening close to Western New York (yet), it will be interesting to see how concerts in this format go.
How will it work for Live Nation's drive-in series? Here's some basics:
- Ticket includes up to four people in one car, and prices start at $125, which makes it about $31 per person
- All venue staff must wear masks, and Live Nation requests that attendees wear masks upon arrival, but masks are not required once your car is parked.
- Your ticket is a contact-less transaction -- it's scanned through your window.
- Gloves are not required for fans.
- Cars will have to be spaced out at least two car spaces apart, but that gives you space for your personal "tailgating zone," something people in Buffalo would completely rock at.
And (probably for the first time in its history), here's what Live Nation says is OK to bring into the show:
"Attendees are encouraged to bring food, drinks and chairs, setting up around their cars to view the performers from the stage and also from the large LED screens."
Tickets for the concert series go on sale this Friday.
