NOBLESVILLE, Ind. (Inside INdiana Business) – Live Nation Entertainment Inc. (NYSE: LYV) has announced plans for its Live From The Drive-In music series. The concert promoter says the series aims to reimagine live music while social distancing and will include concerts at three venues, including the Ruoff Music Center in Noblesville.

Live Nation says the drive-in concert series will allow fans to enjoy concerts from their own individual tailgating zone.

The Ruoff Music Center will host Yacht Rock Revue on July 10, Jon Pardi on July 11, and Brad Paisley on July 12. Concerts will also be held at venues in Nashville and St. Louis.

Live Nation says each event will comply with all health and safety standards per local jurisdictions and state regulations in order to protect fans, artists, crews and staff.

The concerts will feature artists performing full sets with large LED screens and speakers throughout the event.

Fans can bring chairs, food and drinks, and a simple menu of food items and non-alcoholic beverages will also be available for purchase.

All venue staff will be required to wear masks. Live Nation says concertgoers will not be required to wear masks in their assigned tailgate areas, but are being encouraged to wear them if they leave their space to use the restroom facilities.

Each restroom unit will be equipped with hand sanitizer and each restroom cluster has a handwashing sink. Live Nation says cleaning staff will also be sanitizing high-touch areas before, during and after the show, with increased frequency throughout the concerts.

Live Nation says the music series is its first ever U.S. drive-in concert series.
