“The concert will be created exclusively for this event, making this a once in a lifetime experience,” Casper Events Center says. “The concert will be the largest ever one-night show to play at outdoor theaters across the United States and Canada. The event will be produced by Encore Live, a leading event production company. “

“I am so excited to get to play again. I have missed it so much and want to get back to it,” says Brooks. “This drive-in concert allows us all to get back to playing live music without the uncertainty of what would be the result to us as a community. This is old school, new school, and perfect for the time we are in.” 

“The show will adhere to guidelines recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) as well as all state and local health mandates,” Casper Events Center clarifies. “Encore Live has partnered with leading health experts to establish procedures for staff and fans. These will include maintaining at least six feet of space between vehicles, the use of personal protective equipment by staff, leveraging contactless payment and ticketing systems, and limiting capacity in restrooms. “

Guidelines around concessions will also reportedly be enforced to abide by individual state regulations.
