The Blue Grass Drive-In Theater won't just be showing movies this summer.

While many concerts have been postponed, rescheduled, postponed again, and all-out cancelled because of attendance restrictions during the pandemic, there's one way we can still see concerts, and the Blue Grass Drive-In is going to deliver.

The Encore Drive-In Concert series will be airing at drive-ins across the US, Canada and Ireland, bringing big name acts to the big screen.

The first concert showing at the Blue Grass Drive-In for 2021 will take place on May 22nd, with Bon Jovi. Tickets go on sale tomorrow at 11am.

Just like any drive-in event, bring your family in the car, set up facing the screen, and enjoy a great concert.
