Everything you need to know about the Casting Crowns drive-in concert
During the past year, the drive-in concerts have become a trend with bands finding unique ways to bring music to cities across the country. One great example is the award-winning contemporary Christian sensation Casting Crowns who is bringing their Night Under the Stars drive-in tour to the Kentucky Exposition Center on May 8 at 8 p.m.
So what do you need to know about drive-in concerts? Tickets are priced per vehicle with up to six people allowed per vehicle. So a $150 per vehicle ticket becomes $25 per person when you bring a car of six people to the show. Tickets range from $150 to $300 per vehicle and must be purchased online in advance of the show.
Worried it’ll get cramped in your car? Vehicles will have one empty parking space between neighboring vehicles for personal lawn chair seating. So you can get out of the car to sing, dance and enjoy the show. If it rains you can stay cozy in your car and hear the live music through the FM radio.
