Blake Shelton, Gwen Stefani, Trace Adkins To Star In Encore Drive-In Nights

Blake Shelton, Gwen Stefani and Trace Adkins are the first acts announced in the first show of an all-new drive-in movie theater concert series, Encore Drive-In Nights.

The series was launched by Encore Live fresh off the success of their smash hit June 27 ‘Garth Brooks: A Drive-In Concert Experience’ production. The Shelton show will air at theaters across the USA and Canada only on July 25. Tickets will be on sale July 14 at

“This is such a great way to enjoy music with your family and friends and stay safe,” said Shelton. “I’m excited we’re getting the chance to perform a concert for fans and we’re going to go back and play old hits like “Austin,” newer songs like “God’s Country” and we might even introduce something brand new! So fill up those popcorn tubs and get ready for some country music!”

Fans will experience the Encore Drive-In Nights shows from the safety of their personal vehicles. Drive-in theaters hosting the Encore Drive-In Nights will adhere to CDC guidelines as well as all state and local health mandates. 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.

“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 all across North America will air the Encore Drive-In Nights, and additional Encore Drive-In Nights performances will be announced in the coming weeks.
