Live from the Drive-In is a new concert series from Live Nation, a direct response to the ongoing difficulties placed on the live music world as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The special series of live performances will begin on July 10-12 in Indianapolis, IN, Nashville, TN, and St. Louis, MO, with country/pop superstar Brad Paisley headlining each performance. Additional performers include Darius Rucker and Jon Pardi (in Nashville), Nelly and El Monstero (in St. Louis) and Jon Pardi and Yacht Rock Revue (in Indianapolis).

Per a press release, this is part of an innovative new live concert plan for these confusing times:

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

Back in early May, Live Nation rolled out plans to phase in drive-in concerts and similar performance structures, a decision made as a reaction to the significant hurdles the pandemic has caused. Recent reports from NIVA, the National Independent Venue Association, have 90 percent of independently-owned venues fearing for their continued existence once the pandemic subsides enough to resume actual live concerts, which is obviously quite troubling for the industry.

More details on this new drive-in live series, per a release:

“Around the world, we’re seeing a real eagerness from our fans and artists to safely get back to the concert experience,” said Tom See, President Live Nation Venues – US 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.”
