Garth Brooks fans will have the opportunity to catch the country superstar in concert later this month at drive-in theaters across the country.

Brooks announced Thursday, June 11, that he will host a one-night-only exclusive concert at over 300 drive-in theater locations in North America on June 27.

“I am so excited to get to play again. I have missed it so much and want to get back to it,” said Brooks in a press release. “This drive-in concert allows us all to get back to playing live music without the uncertainty of what would be the result to us as a community. This is old school, new school, and perfect for the time we are in.”

Tickets for the concert go on sale Friday, June 19 at 12:00 pm EST and can be purchased for $100 via Ticketmaster.

Each ticket will admit one passenger car/truck (includes as many people as there are legal seatbelts, but max of 6 people).

The locations where fans can catch the concert will be announced on Monday, June 15 at 12:00 pm.

Encore Live, the producers of the show, say the event will take place rain or shine and will begin at dusk.

“Families need safe entertainment options that they can enjoy together this summer,” said Encore Live Founder and CEO Walter Kinzie. “We’re excited to partner with Garth, who’s already done so much to help the entertainment industry during these tough times, to provide a truly unique and incredible concert that will do a whole lot of good for local businesses and communities.”

Encore Live says the show will adhere to guidelines recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) as well as all state and local health mandates.
