Chase Rice to perform drive-in concert in Ashland

Paramount Arts Center

To feed an appetite for live entertainment while combating the spread of COVID-19, the Paramount Arts Center announced today details for a drive-in concert presented by BCG Land LLC.

The outdoor drive-in concert experience will feature country music superstar Chase Rice performing live with Tyler Booth and Shelby Lore set to open the show. The evening will wrap up with a fireworks display.

A drive-in concert of this size is a first-of-its-kind event for the area and will present a unique live-show experience featuring a chart-topping recording artist, in a socially distant environment. Located on private property at 917 N Big Run Road in Ashland, KY, the concert will take place on Friday, July 3rd at 7:30pm.

Live music fans and music enthusiasts alike will be able to watch the performances from the safety and comfort of their cars or directly next to their vehicle in lawn chairs. The artists will perform directly in front of fans on a stage in the field, complete with jumbo screens to ensure all attendees have a great view of the bands.

“We are eager to once again start providing entertainment to our community and to be able to offer the experience in a way that takes into account health and safety guidelines,” said Paramount Executive Director Holly Canfield. “We’re thrilled to have such a big artist join us for an exciting show that an entire family can enjoy.”

The concert starts at 7:30pm., with entry being allowed beginning at 6pm. Early arrival is encouraged.

Tickets are $149.99 per vehicle, with carpooling encouraged. Although food vendors will be on-site, food and beverage coolers are allowed, with the exception of glass containers.
