Nelly and Brad Paisley Launch Drive-In Concert Series With Live Nation
(AllHipHop News) Country superstar Brad Paisley and rapper Nelly are returning to the stage to headline the world's first large-scale drive-in concert series.
"Live from the Drive-In," organized by officials at events giant Live Nation, will feature nine big gigs between July 10 to 12 with Paisley performing in each of the three selected venues' parking lots, starting with the Hollywood Casino Amphitheater in St. Louis, Missouri, followed by shows at the Nissan Stadium in Nashville, Tennessee, and at the Ruoff Music Center in Noblesville, Indiana.
Fellow country artists Jon Pardi and Darius Rucker will also play on separate nights in Nashville, while Nelly and Pink Floyd tribute band El Monstero will welcome fans in their native Missouri.
Pardi and Yacht Rock Revue will complete the trio of concerts in Indiana.
Guests will be limited to four people per vehicle, which will be parked in every third space, enabling fans a little extra room around their cars to get out and enjoy the shows, while still observing social distancing guidelines during the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
They will be asked to wear masks to enter the area, although they will not have to keep the face coverings on while in their designated parking spot, where the concertgoers are encouraged to embrace a tailgating set up, bringing their own food and drinks to enjoy during the gig.
And Paisley is "very excited" about Live Nation bosses' plan to get the live music industry back in action after the COVID-19 shutdown.
Tickets are set to go on sale on Friday.
