According to a press release, the one-night-only drive-in concert event will be filmed in advance of the July 25 air date and include "performances, interviews and storytelling from Shelton and his special guests."
"This is such a great way to enjoy music with your family and friends and stay safe," Shelton says in a statement. "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!"
Fans can watch the shows at drive-ins throughout the U.S. and Canada. Tickets go on sale Tuesday, July 14 at 12PM and will cost $114.99 per vehicle.
Shelton's new concert series was inspired by the success of Garth Brooks' recent drive-in show. His event aired on June 27 at 300 drive-ins across the country to more than 350,000 fans. Encore Live was also the production company for Brooks show.
"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 in-person experiences."
