Just a few days after drive-in concerts started to pop up in Europe, the first American "drive-in" concert tour has been announced.
With COVID-19 affecting the live music industry and cancelling major arena tours for the foreseeable future, artists are looking for new ways to reach their fans. From Instagram concert sessions to Twitch accounts, and now this.
Electronic artist Marc Rebillet will embark on a 7-date summer tour at drive-in movie theaters across five cities.
The shows will combine live electronic music with short films, and the artist is working with local authorities to create safe protocols and ensure social distancing at the events.
Tour dates are on sale now for Charlotte, Kansas City, Tulsa, Fort Worth, and Houston. You can see the dates and buy tickets here.
With concert promoters looking for ways to generate ticket revenue, could this be the new normal until large gatherings are once again approved? Would you attend a drive-in concert? How much would you want to pay for a ticket?
It's certainly an interesting concept, and I'm sure you'll see similar shows pop up soon.
