A Garth Brooks drive-in concert will be aired Saturday on the big screen outside the Casper Events Center as part of a concert event with 300 participating drive-in theaters across North America.
The concert produced by Encore Live will be created exclusively for the event, “making this a once in a lifetime experience,” the Casper Events Center said in the announcement. “The concert will be the largest ever one-night show to play at outdoor theaters across the United States and Canada.”
Limited tickets are $100 per passenger car or truck at ticketmaster.com/garthbrooks only. Gates open at 7 p.m. and the show will begin at dusk about 8:30 p.m., rain or shine. All tickets are general admission. Concession and gate entrance details will be announced.
The show will adhere to Centers for Disease Control and Prevention guidelines and all state and local health mandates. Procedures will include at least six feet between vehicles, staff use of personal protective equipment, contactless payment and ticketing, limiting capacity in restrooms and following state regulations for concessions.
Brooks remains the No. 1-selling solo artist in U.S. history with 156 million album sales and is only artist to receive eight Diamond Awards, with eight albums certified at more than 10 million in album sales. He’s also the first seven-time time CMA Entertainer of the Year. Brooks in March received the Library of Congress Gershwin Prize for Popular Song, and Billboard in January announced he’s the first artist to land on the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart every decade from the ’80s to the 2020s.
“I am so excited to get to play again,” Brooks said in the news release. “I have missed it so much and want to get back to it. 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.”
