Updated on 6/27/20 (concert day!) — There are apparently still some tickets available to see Garth Brooks from the drive-in tonight. You may have a short wait in a virtual queue before reaching the purchase and checkout screens.
Garth Brooks will perform in Nashville for one night only — and you can attend the virtual concert exclusively at the Starlight Drive-in, located in Atlanta, on Saturday, June 27th.
Like everything else, the music industry has had to adapt to our current challenges and change the way it delivers entertainment. Since March, virtual performances have become the norm, but most have been watch-at-home with the musician playing for “tips” (donations made via a cash app).
The upcoming Garth Brooks concert is likely the start of a new trend — the drive-in experience.
Garth will perform in an empty Nashville venue, while audiences nationwide watch from their cars at 300+ drive-in theaters.
In a press statement, Garth said:
“I am so excited to get to play again. I have missed it so much and want to get back to it. 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.”
On June 27th, at 8:30 p.m., you can attend the concert at the Starlight Drive-in. The price is $100 per car — which doesn’t sound like a deal until you realize that four friends can go together and split the cost.
Tickets go on sale Friday, June 19th, at 12 noon.
They are expected to sell out very quickly.
The audio will be broadcast through FM radio, so the sound quality of the concert will depend on the quality of your radio. You may want to bring a portable, battery-powered radio so you don’t run down your car’s battery.
The concert is a rain or shine event.
See the concert at the Tiger Drive-In
If you live in the far north suburbs and want to see the concert, you could also buy tickets to the Tiger Drive-In, located in Tiger, Georgia. This is a location in the north Georgia mountains, just south of Clayton.
