Chart-Topping Multi-Platinum Singer/Songwriter Jason Derulo to Perform Saturday Night at LIV Golf Invitational Chicago
SUGAR GROVE, Ill. (September 13, 2022) – LIV Golf today announced that global pop superstar Jason Derulo will headline the live music entertainment performing the weekend of September 16-18 at the LIV Golf Invitational Chicago. The chart-topping multi-platinum singer/songwriter will entertain fans at Rich Harvest Farms on Saturday, September 17 to conclude day two of the three-day event in the groundbreaking LIV Golf Invitational Series.
Grounds passes for the tournament are $49 per day and are all-inclusive of the live performances and fan activities. Youth 15 and under receive complimentary admission to the tournament as do active-duty military and veterans, in addition to a guest. Guests can also enjoy a Friday night concert by indie-electronic group St. Lucia, led by South African singer and musician Jean-Philip Grobler, who has developed a passionate following for the group’s upbeat style and feel-good sounds that attract audiences throughout the nation. For tickets and more information, visit Tickets.LIVGolf.com.
Forward-thinking, genre-defying, and massively creative, Jason Derulo has staked his claim as one of the most dynamic forces on the global pop landscape. Since breaking through with his five-times-platinum single “Whatcha Say” and selling more than 200 million records worldwide, the award-winning singer/songwriter has turned out an unstoppable run of immediately iconic hits and collaborated with many of music’s greatest trailblazers, not to mention all-time legends like Stevie Wonder. His latest triumphs include emerging as one of TikTok’s most influential users, boasting the 11th overall biggest account on the video-sharing platform and the 4th most-followed male.
Now at work on his highly anticipated fifth album – and first full-length since 2015’s chart-topping Everything Is 4 – Derulo recently delivered a series of smash singles while operating as an independent artist. Those songs include “Lifestyle” featuring Adam Levine (a wildly catchy track), “Take You Dancing” (a pandemic-era love song that’s inspired over a half-million videos on TikTok), and the double-platinum “Savage Love (Laxed-Siren Beat)” – a collaboration with New Zealand-based producer Jawsh 685 that hit No. 1 on Top 40 radio, with its official BTS remix reaching the top slot on Billboard’s Hot 100.

Within the Fan Village, guests can test their skills on the Zen Green Swing Stage®, golf’s most advanced playing surface that recreates hitting approach shots on adjustable sloping lies, providing a revolutionary golf experience. Nearby at the Impossible Putt, even the most advanced golfers will have their putting skills tested. And LIV Golf’s Eco Village will offer the chance to relax in an eco-friendly setting where guests can refill water bottles at a hydro station, charge cell phones by peddling a bike, watch a 3D printer create golf tees from recycled plastic, and attempt to chip golf balls into a target to raise money for local charities. LIV Golf also brings the concept of Après Golf to the course, where the conclusion of play features an extended lively hospitality experience in the Fan Village each day.
