- Encore Drive-In Nights launches new shows with Blake Shelton and special guests Gwen Stefani and Trace Adkins.
Encore Drive-In Nights has launched as a new concert experience across drive-ins with new performances filmed exclusively for each one-night-only event, and including cinematic interviews and storytelling. The concerts will take place at drive-in and outdoor theaters across the United States and Canada.
The Encore Drive-In Nights series is presented by leading event production company Encore Live. As the COVID-19 pandemic has canceled many concerts, drive-in theaters have become a way to deliver entertainment to audiences in a safe way.
The drive-ins participating will follow the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommended guidelines as well as all state and local health mandates. The staff will wear personal protective equipment and enforce at least six feet of space between cars. Contactless payment will be implemented and ticketing systems and limit capacity in restrooms.
“This is such a great way to enjoy music with your family and friends and stay safe,” said Shelton. “I’m excited we’re getting the chance to perform a concert for fans and we’re going to go back and play old hits like “Austin,” newer songs like “God’s Country” and we might even introduce something brand new! So fill up those popcorn tubs and get ready for some country music!”
Encore Live launched the series in response to overwhelming fan enthusiasm surrounding its June 27 ‘Garth Brooks: A Drive-In Concert Experience’ production.
“After the overwhelming response to Garth Brooks’ drive-in concert feature, we knew we had to launch Encore Drive-In Nights to provide music fans across the USA and Canada the chance to see their favorite artists in a cool new way,” said Encore Live Founder and CEO Walter Kinzie. “We can’t wait to bring music’s biggest stars to outdoor movie screens all across North America so that people can get back out there again and safely enjoy engaging in-person experiences.”
Each ticket will admit one passenger car, truck or SUV. That means up to six family members or friends (as many as there are legal seatbelts) can enjoy these exciting experiences together for one low cost.
Tickets will will go on sale July 14 at ticketmaster.com/encore-blakeshelton.
