A New Music Game Show Is Coming To TV (And Concert Parking Lots), And It Looks Perfect For Mega-Fans


Current game shows like Beat Shazam, That’s My Jamand the Name that Tune reboot have been keeping music-geared game shows alive and well on the small screen, balancing the abundance of celeb-filled talent competitions such as The Voice. But those series tend to test contestants’ overall awareness of popular music more so than any deeper knowledge about the songs and artists. That all changes with AXS TV’s upcoming series Parking Lot Paydayand as its title indicates, it features one of the most unique game show settings imaginable: concert parking lots.

Debuting on AXS TV on July 12, Parking Lot Payday will be hosted by ESPN’s Around the Horn and G4s Attack of the Show vet Zach Selwyn, who will give unsuspecting concert attendees a chance to score some well-earned cash just for being well-informed fans. The show’s four-episode first season features Selwyn & Co. popping up within the parking areas of different arenas and putting select fans in the hot seat, with the challenge of answering a variety of multiple-choice questions pertaining to the headlining bands. The shortlist of said acts is below, along with the airdates:

  • Metallica – July 12
  • The Rolling Stones – July 19
  • Imagine Dragons – July 26
  • Coldplay – August 1
