LIV Golf announced today that three-time GRAMMY Award-winning artist Nelly will entertain fans at the highly-anticipated LIV Golf Chicago, returning to Rich Harvest Farms September 22-24.
The acclaimed hip-hop icon will perform live on the main stage at approximately 5:00 p.m. on Friday to conclude day one of competition.
In addition, the previously-announced concert on Saturday, September 23 by GRAMMY Award-winning Tiësto will kick off at approximately 5:00 p.m. following completion of play.
“Last year, LIV Golf made a splash in the Chicago region when fantastic crowds witnessed Cam Smith’s first LIV Golf victory and an impressive team win by the 4Aces.
This year, we’re raising the bar for the area’s passionate sports fans,” said LIV Golf CEO and Commissioner Greg Norman.
“From the party hole to the post-round entertainment, the on-course energy at Rich Harvest Farms will be electric as many of the world’s best players battle it out in the race for our individual and team championships.”
LIV Golf is taking the fan experience to new heights for its return to Chicagoland by bringing the popular “Watering Hole” concept prominently featured at LIV Golf Adelaide to Chicago sports fanatics.
The party hole at Rich Harvest Farms will showcase the league’s “GOLF, BUT LOUDER” theme with amphitheater-style seating from tee to green on the par-3 No. 17, including a live DJ, player-selected walk-up music, and introductions by legendary Chicago sports public address announcer Ray Clay.
Limited VIP hospitality packages with prime seating for the party hole are still available, including passes to The Gallery Club, bringing fans on top of the action at the 17th and 18th tee boxes, and The Lake Shore Club, featuring the party atmosphere surrounding the 17th green. All tickets, including grounds passes, provide access to the live music performances and fan activities. To secure tickets, visit LIVGolf.com.
