Tailgaiting Concerts at Ruoff

Live Nation recently announced its first-ever U.S. drive-in concert series — LIVE FROM THE DRIVE-IN —  that will bring fans a live music tailgating experience unlike any other, kicking off July 10-12 in Indianapolis, IN, Nashville, TN, and St. Louis, MO. The Indianapolis area shows will take place across three nights at Ruoff Music Center and feature live in person headlining performances by Brad Paisley, Jon Pardi, and local favorites Yacht Rock Revue.

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 http://livenation.com/drivein/
