Live Nation Unveils 'Concerts in the Lot' Series in Three U.S. Cities
Pollstar (06/22/20) Speer, Deborah
Live Nation announced that it will hold the first three "Concerts in the Lot" July 10-12 at Nissan Stadium in Nashville, Ruoff Music Center near Indianapolis and the Hollywood Casino Amphitheater near St. Louis. The performances will take place in the venues' parking lots, with Brad Paisley, Darius Rucker, Jon Pardi and Nelly among the scheduled artists. Attendees will be able to drive into the lots, with no more than four people per vehicle, and have two empty spaces in between each car so fans can watch and party from their designated individual tailgating zones. "We're giving you what's about the size of a double-car garage to where you're going to be able to park your car, get out of your car, and have a great tailgating hang for you and your friends, and listen to music through proper professional PA and amazing audio and video display," said Live Nation Venues-U.S. Concerts President Tom See. All venue staff must wear masks, and Live Nation asks that attendees wear masks upon arrival, where there will be contactless ticket scanning through their vehicles' windows. Masks are not obligatory once fans are in their designated tailgate areas, and gloves are not mandated. Tickets will go on sale for the general public on June 26, and See said they could go as low as $125.
