NOBLESVILLE, Ind. — Live Nation has announced its first-ever drive-in concerts series in the U.S. for July.
Ruoff Home Mortgage Music Center in Noblesville is one of three venues that will host “Live from the Drive-In” — a set of nine shows to take place July 10-12.
Nashville, Tennessee and Maryland Heights, Missouri are the other two sites where Grammy-winning singer Brad Paisley will headline shows on consecutive nights.
Yacht Rock Revue will perform July 10 in Noblesville, followed by John Pardi on July 11 and Paisley on July 12.
Darius Rucker and Pardi will also perform in Nashville at Nissan Stadium.
Nelly will perform in Maryland Heights, near his native St. Louis.
The series was created, according to Live Nation's website, "as a way to re imagine the live music experience during a time of social distancing."
The concept allows fans to enjoy concerts from their own tailgating zone approximately the size of a two-car garage.
Artists will perform full music sets on large LED screens and speakers throughout the venue, so fans can enjoy the show from any location on the lot.
Fans can bring their own chairs, food and drinks - alcohol is allowed - to make their own party. Some food and drinks will be available to purchase at the concerts. No grills or open fires are allowed.
Venue staff will wear masks. Fans are encouraged to wear masks in common areas like bathrooms, but do not have to in their own tailgate zone.
Concert souvenirs will not be sold on-site, but can be ordered by mail, with the proceeds donated to the Crew Nation relief fund for live music crews affected by the pandemic.
One ticket is good for 4 people per vehicle.
Tickets go on sale Friday at Live Nation.
