HIDALGO, Texas (KVEO) — Officials at Payne Arena say they will be making history in the Rio Grande Valley, and across the state. The arena will be one of the first venues in the state bringing back live music through drive-in concerts.
The concert series event gets kicked off Friday night with the Drive In Honk-y Tonk Concert Series. The Eli Young Band will perform Friday night, followed by Kevin Fowler on Saturday, then Sunday night will feature Groupo Intocable
Parking spots have been distanced in accordance with CDC guidelines and there are a limited number of about 500 spots available for each concert.
Everyone is encouraged to purchase their tickets on-line. Tickets will allow for up to 4 passengers per vehicle, an additional 2 people can be added for an additional fee.
Officials say they are ready for the fans to come out and enjoy live music but they want everyone to do that in a safe and controlled environment.
Once attendees park they are asked to stay in their spots, however, they can exit their vehicles but a mask must be worn. Guests will also have access to bathrooms and concessions but you are asked to social distance.
“Safe for everybody, so we’ve done a lot of homework, research, and asking a lot of questions making sure the event is 100 percent safe,” says Aleck Rios, Event Promoter
Rios says he hopes to bring more concert events to the valley soon and adds he hopes everyone who comes out has a great time and enjoys live music.
