Bands to Play Concerts in a New Way
Bands are ready to get out and play concerts again and some of them are finding interesting ways to do it.
Texas country artists Eli Young Band, Pat Green, Whiskey Myers and more have signed on for a series of drive-in concerts at the Texas Rangers' ballpark in Arlington. Hopefully, the early June shows with social distancing will prove to be successful and could lead to more.
Billboard reports that the Concert in Your Car series at Globe Life Field will begin with:
Eli Young Band on June 4th.
Whiskey Myers will perform on June 5th
Pat Green will take the stage on June 6th
Josh Abbott Band and Kevin Fowler will play the final scheduled event on June 7th.
The way it works, is that fans will watch the hour-long acoustic shows from inside their cars, which will be parked in every other parking spot, and will listen on their car radios. The band members themselves will be distanced from each other onstage, and use a minimal crew to run the show.
Tickets for each concert are priced at $40 per car and must be purchased in advance. Attendance will be capped at 400 cars, and tickets will be scanned through car windows for entry. Get the full story at theboot.com.
