Garth Brooks is determined to entertain fans despite the ongoing coronavirus crisis, announcing a one-night-only concert event that will take place at 300 drive-in theaters across North America on June 27.
"This one guy came to me and said, 'Hey, look, we can put 300 drive-in theaters together if you will create a concert solely for the drive-ins. We can have families jump in the car, get them out on Saturday night,'" Brooks said Thursday on Good Morning America.
"They're going to run it just like a regular concert, but this is going to be all over North America, one night only.
We are excited because this is a reason to get out of the house, but at the same time you get to follow all the COVID rules... We're calling it 'social distancing partying.'"
The event will take place rain or shine and will begin at dusk. Tickets will cost $100 apiece and will admit one passenger car or truck.
They go on sale Friday, June 19, at 12 p.m. ET at ticketmaster.com/garthbrooks, with a list of participating theaters available that day.
