For the first time, Live Nation will hold a U.S. drive-in concert series giving fans a live music tailgating experience.
Noblesville’s Ruoff Music Center is one of three sites for the concerts. The other two are in St. Louis and Nashville, Tenn.
The Ruoff concerts will include July 10: Yacht Rock Revue; July 11; Jon Pardi and July 12: Brad Paisley.
Paisley will headline in all three cities.
Live Nation is reimagining the live music experience during a time of social distancing by allowing fans to enjoy concerts in a one-of-a-kind drive-in setting from their own private tailgating zones next to their cars. Guests are allowed to bring chairs, food and drinks to party in their zone to personalize their experience.
More details including event guidelines can be found at LiveNation.com/DriveIn.
Fans can expect contactless ticket scanning through their window when they pull into the venue and then will be shown to their designated tailgate area where they can park and enjoy the show from their own marked-off space. There will be dedicated buffer space around each vehicle to ensure social distancing measures. All artists will be performing full live sets on stages set up in the parking lots of each of the venues.
The events also will feature full LED screens and speakers throughout so fans can enjoy a truly live concert experience.
“Around the world, we’re seeing a real eagerness from our fans and artists to safely get back to the concert experience,” stated Tom See, president of Live Nation venues for U.S. concerts. “We are excited to unveil Live From The Drive-In – a completely unique outdoor concert series that will allow fans to enjoy live shows again, while socially distanced. We have an incredible line-up of artists like Brad Paisley, Darius Rucker, Nelly, Jon Pardi and more, who all share our vision to continue to create once-in-a-lifetime moments for fans and are excited to get back to live music through this reimagined experience.”
