Jon Pardi performs Jacksonville’s first ever drive-in concert

Concerts held tonight and tomorrow at Lot J

TONIGHT - Country music star Jon Pardi will headline the first-ever drive-in concert experience in the River City. News4jax reporter Ashley Harding is LIVE at Lot J just outside of Daily's Place.

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – Country star Jon Pardi will headline the first-ever drive-in concert experience in Jacksonville.

When word of the concert spread in September, a second show was added because it was so popular. Speaking to The Morning Show earlier this week, Pardi said he is looking forward to having fun and staying safe.

“We have done a couple drive-in shows, It has been a lot of fun. I think once everybody gets their space and they get situated they feel safe, and it kind of feels normal,” he said.

The drive-in concert is being held at Lot J at TIAA Bank Field this weekend.

Special guests include Jillian Jacqueline and Jordan Fletcher on Friday and Saturday. The show starts at 7:30 p.m.

Pardi said he is thrilled to visit the River City, especially because his performances came to screeching halt when the pandemic first hit.

“We have practices at my house and at my shop and stuff and we were so in shape. Now that we are in shape, we will get done with a set and we are like ‘woah!’ It’s kind of like playing sports; you get used to playing sports all the time and then you just sit on the couch and not do anything and once you get back in the game, man, it’s a whole different thing,” Pardi said.

Tickets are still available HERE. Tickets are available to purchase per car, with a maximum capacity limited to the number of seatbelts per vehicle. Parking will be first, come first served within each price level.

Guests will be allowed to bring chairs, food and drinks to party in their private tailgating zones next to their cars.

Social distancing will be enforced. Face masks/coverings will be required by all patrons when they are not in their car or designated tailgate area.

The event will feature full LED screens on either side of the stage and speakers throughout so fans can enjoy a true, live concert experience.
