Country music superstar Garth Brooks is going to appear at Cheyenne’s Terry Bison Ranch on June 27.
Well, he’ll appear there and at more than 300 other outdoor theaters across the country (and Canada) during a unique concert event. Brooks will perform a show in Nashville and broadcast it across the country.
“Summer is here! We’re so excited to invite you to an exclusive, first-of-its-kind concert,” the Terry Bison Ranch wrote in the Facebook post announcing the event.
Brooks told Good Morning America’s Robin Roberts that he was looking to do a show during the pandemic but none of the options seemed to work until he ran into someone pitching the drive-in idea.
“This one guy came to me and said they could put 300 – 400 drive-in theaters together if I would put a concert together solely for the drive-in,” Brooks said. “We can have families jump in the car and come out on a Saturday night. It’s pretty cool.”
The country singer said the drive-in experience should be much better than it was when he was growing up.
“Remember that speaker you hung on the window? Well now, you can tune the concert right in to your own car radio so you can blast it or blare it for as long as you want with the windows up or the windows down,” he said.
Tickets go on sale at 11 a.m. Friday at a cost of $100 per car or truck.
Brooks is listed as the best-selling solo albums artist in the United States by the Recording Industry Association of America.
He was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame in 2012.
