Encore Drive-In Nights is launching a must-see concert feature experience of the summer at drive-in and outdoor theaters across the United States and Canada.

These performances will be filmed exclusively for each one-night-only event and will include cinematic interviews and storytelling. The concert experience will deliver a front-row look at iconic recording artists to fans across North America.

The series begins July 25 with a performance featuring Blake Shelton, joined by guests Gwen Stefani and Trace Adkins. This first show will be hosted by the Hayden Cinema Pop-up Drive-In at 300 W. Centa Drive in the Prairie Shopping Center. Visit to buy tickets starting Tuesday.

The Encore Drive-In Nights series is presented by event production company Encore Live. Amid the COVID-19 pandemic, drive-in theaters have proven to be a safe, creative way to deliver entertainment to fans thanks to their ability to engage and delight large groups of people in open-air layouts.

Fans will experience Encore Drive-In Nights shows from the safety of their vehicles. Drive-in theaters hosting the Encore Drive-In Nights will adhere to Centers for Disease Control and Prevention-recommended guidelines as well as state and local health mandates. Staff will wear personal protective equipment and enforce at least 6 feet of space between cars.

The series will also use contactless payment and ticketing systems and limit capacity in restrooms. Guidelines around concessions will be enforced.

“This is such a great way to enjoy music with your family and friends and stay safe,” Shelton said. “I’m excited we’re getting the chance to perform a concert for fans and we’re going to go back and play old hits like 'Austin,' newer songs like 'God’s Country' and we might even introduce something brand new! So fill up those popcorn tubs and get ready for some country music!"
