Bon Jovi released a teaser video on Twitter on Monday to announce that their concert “Encore Drive-In Nights 2021” for the Encore Live series will be broadcast at approximately 300 venues around the world.
The band said the one-of-a-kind concert, filmed at the Paramount Theatre in Asbury Park, will be broadcast on May 22 at venues around the world, including drive-in and outdoor theaters across the United States, Canada and Ireland and select indoor cinemas around the globe.
“Bon Jovi is a global icon and we’re so happy that the band will be launching our 2021 concert season!” Encore Drive-In Nights CEO Walter Kinzie said in a release. “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.”
He added, “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.”
Encore Live created the drive-in series to enable fans to enjoy live performances during the pandemic but believes the events have a place in the post-COVID world as well.
