Garth Brooks to host drive-in concert at 300 North American theaters


Well, we still can’t go to concerts, but this might be the next best thing.

Country superstar Garth Brooks is putting on a show that will be played at 300 North American drive-in theaters on June 27. The performance will follow CDC social distancing guidelines.

“I am so excited to get to play again. I have missed it so much and want to get back to it,” Brooks said. “This drive-in concert allows us all to get back to playing live music without the uncertainty of what would be the result to us as a community. This is old school, new school, and perfect for the time we are in.”

The event is being put on by production company Encore Live.

“Families need safe entertainment options that they can enjoy together this summer,” said Encore Live Founder and CEO Walter Kinzie. “We’re excited to partner with Garth, who’s already done so much to help the entertainment industry during these tough times, to provide a truly unique and incredible concert that will do a whole lot of good for local businesses and communities.”

A $100 all-inclusive tickets can be purchased for each vehicle at Ticketmaster. A maximum of six people are allowed each vehicle.

“I hope people are going to start working on flashing their light, honking their horns and hopefully rolling down their windows,” Brooks said on Good Morning America.
