Alan Jackson to perform 2 drive-in concerts in Alabama

on

Alan Jackson announced a pair of “drive-in concerts” that will happen next month in Alabama. The first will take place in Cullman, Alabama on June 12 and the second in Fairhope, Alabama on June 13. The dates are a week later than originally announced due to weather.

The shows are being called the “Small Town Drive-In” concerts and will each have space for at least 2,000 vehicles. Both events will be staged in accordance with and while promoting CDC and Alabama state health guidelines regarding social distancing and other practices. Concertgoers will be required to stay with their vehicles and concessions will be provided only via phone orders with delivery to vehicles.

Tickets will be sold per vehicle: $99.99 for two passengers, with each additional passenger charged $39.99. VIP tickets, which include the closest stage parking, begin around $200. Pepsi is presenting the concerts, and a portion of the proceeds will benefit food-relief efforts.

According to Jackson’s press release on his website, the performances are intended to give people “a quality-of-life activity during this current time of isolation and uncertainty,” and will be “staged in accordance with and while promoting CDC and Alabama state health guidelines regarding social distancing and other practices.”

The Texas Rangers will host eight concerts from artists like Eli Young Band and Whiskey Myers in the parking lot of their ballpark in Arlington, Texas, in June. The first four shows sold out in minutes, with four added shows selling out in a few hours.

Jackson is scheduled to perform in Cleveland at the Rocket Mortgage Fieldhouse on July 31.
