The show was recorded live, exclusively for this one-night-only event at drive-ins and outdoor venues.
“Bon Jovi is a global icon and we’re so happy that the band will be launching our 2021 concert season.” said Walter Kinzie, CEO at Encore Drive-In Nights.
“The pandemic has taught us that there are new avenues for live entertainment and this model is one of the safest and most innovative options for world-class, fun events for the whole family. There are millions of fans who don’t usually attend live shows, whether it’s because they live far away from the big touring arenas or because of the cost. Artists can now connect with these fans in a completely new way.”
Tickets, which admit one car with up to five passengers inside, go on sale tomorrow, April 28th, 2021 at 5pm here. Just 250 tickets are available per venue.
