Tickets on sale for Blake Shelton’s Drive-In Concert


The drive-in concerts are becoming the go-to entertainment for a nation that is forced to social distance and Blake Shelton is joining in with his Encore Drive-In Nights show, a concert feature filmed exclusively for drive-in theaters across North America. Joining Shelton will be special guests Gwen Stefani and Trace Adkins.

Tickets for the July 25 event go on sale today (July 14) at for $114.99 per vehicle (up to 6 people).

The Encore Drive-In Nights series is presented by event production company Encore Live. Amid the COVID-19 pandemic, drive-in theaters have proven to be a safe, creative way to deliver fans world-class entertainment thanks to their ability to engage and delight large groups of people in open-air spaces.

There are 17 drive-in theaters in Ohio that will be hosting Blake Shelton Encore Drive-In Nights including the Midway Drive In in Ravenna and the Mayfield Road Drive In Theatre in Chardon. For a complete list of participating drive-ins click HERE.

The first experience of Encore Live was a successful June 27 show by Garth Brooks.

“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-person experiences.”

Drive-in theaters hosting the Encore Drive-In Nights adhere to CDC recommended guidelines as well as all state and local health mandates, according to the producers. Staff will wear personal protective equipment and enforce at least six feet of space between cars. The series will also use contactless payment and ticketing systems and limit capacity in restrooms. Guidelines around concessions will be enforced to abide by individual state regulations
