Covid-19 has had an astronomically large effect on the way the world is working in 2020. One area that has been hit with a change so hard is the entertainment industry. People are yearning to get out and do social things, but for the most part, can not. Restaurants are limited, events are cancelled and large gatherings are virtually prohibited. The entertainment industry is looking for creative ways to stay alive and bring the views what they so desperately desire. One clever idea that has been treading around the country is drive in concerts. Is this the future of entertainment…at least for now?
Drive in movies have always been a hit since they first came on the scene in the 1950s. The idea of being both social while being isolated was one that people enjoyed. Although this fad did lose steam throughout the years, this new idea for concerts and shows is bringing the interest back to life. First starting with Garth Brooks and now countless other artists are looking to tour this way. The way this works is that each car costs $114 to enter. This ticket gets you and a carload of people into the concert. The show will then be displayed live on the screens throughout the drive in. This same show will be shown in drive ins across the country, but will be the only way to see the event. This type of viewing can be used for sporting events as well. It allows the audience to have the feeling of togetherness, while still being safe.
This may not be the most conventional way to see shows, but due to the unprecedented circumstances of the 2020 Coronavirus, the drive in viewing is a great way to fill the void of the entertainment we are lacking. Whether you are craving excitement or you miss the feeling of togetherness, the drive in viewings are a way to improve the entertainment world in 2020. Would you go see your favorite artist or team on the big drive in screen?
