(FOX19) -

When the gates open this May for Riverbend's thirty-first concert season patrons will notice a major update.

The venue unveiled on Thursday four brand new, state-of-the-art, LED video screens for the lawn.

Seasoned concert-goers are used to the two video displays on the lawn, but the new 'Skyline Chilivision' offers an improved experience that representatives say make every lawn seat feel like the front row.

"We doubled the number of video boards from two to four and installed state-of-the art LED technology that will give lawn patrons an up close and personal view of every artist day or night," said Mike Smith, CEO of Music and Event Management, Inc.

An identical fifth video board will be installed at the East end of the venue, bringing the show to fans in line for concessions and restrooms.

The boards will debut on May 30th for the Lady Antebellum concert.
