As COVID-19 pandemic restrictions continue to loosen, two legendary musicmakers will be headlining the Power 92’s Father’s Day drive-in concert in Chicago.

Concertgoers will be treated to music performances from iconic Chicago rapper Twista, and platinum-selling group Bone Thugs-N-Harmony. Also on the bill are comedians Red Grant, T.K. Kirkland and Rodney Perry.

The Father’s Day Love and Laughter Fest, which is scheduled for June 19 at the Soldier Field South Lot (doors open at 7:30 p.m.), is the brainchild of Power 92-FM (92.3). It will be hosted by Power 92-FM personalities Ricky Rampage and Sean Dale, along with WSRB-FM’s (106.3) Lady Red.

The drive-in event will adhere to social distancing guidelines by requiring concertgoers to park their vehicles one space apart. Lawn chairs are allowed; attendees must remain in designated areas adjacent to their cars, except when purchasing food items or using restrooms. Masks are mandatory when attendees are outside vehicles.

Perry, based in Atlanta, revels in being a part of an event celebrating dads in his hometown of Chicago.

“A lot of times as fathers, you feel like Father’s Day is an afterthought,” said Perry, a South Side native and father of six (five girls, one boy). “To do this event on Father’s Day — in Chicago at Soldier Field — rings so many bells for me. Fathers deserve a lot of the credit for [binding] our families together — I’m one of those dads; I like being a part of an event showcasing that. ... Any time you get to come home [Chicago], it’s a good day.”

Comedian Red Grant, also a headliner for the drive-in event, echoes Perry’s sentiments.

“As a father, I think it’s necessary to honor fathers in a big way,” said Grant in a statement. “I’m looking forward to hitting the stage with my bros and celebrating Father’s Day by doing what I love.”

Tickets (18+over; starting at $400 for up to four vehicle occupants) for the Drive-In Fest can be purchased at Vehicles with more than four occupants will be charged an additional $50 per person. Maximum six total occupants (eight for SUVs)..
