Garth Brooks has a most unusual plan for performing once again.

Wisconsin drive-in theaters to host Garth Brooks concert on June 27

Concerts are back ... sort of.

Country superstar Garth Brooks will perform a special one-night-only social distanced concert on Saturday, June 27, streamed to 300 drive-in theaters across the country – including several Wisconsin locations.

The "Friends in Low Places" singer made the announcement on Thursday morning.

"I am so excited to get to play again. I have missed it so much and want to get back to it," Brooks said, in a statement. "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."

According to TMJ4, eight Wisconsin drive-in theaters are currently set to screen the concert experience, including:

  • Big Sky Twin Drive-In Theater: N9199 Winnebago Rd. in Wisconsin Dells
  • Chilton Twilight Outdoor Theater: 1255 E. Chestnut St. in Chilton
  • Field of Scenes: N3712 WI-55 in Freedom
  • Highway 18 Outdoor Theatre: W6423 US-18 in Jefferson
  • Moonlight Outdoor Theater: 1494 E. Green Bay St. in Shawano
  • River's Edge Drive-In: 1820 Raleigh Rd. in New Richmond
  • Sky Vu Drive In Movie Theater : N1936 WI-69 in Monroe
  • Skyway Drive-In Theater: 3475 State Highway 42 in Fish Creek

More locations may be added, but as of right now, the closest location screening the concert is the Highway 18 drive-in, which is just less than an hour outside of Milwaukee.

Tickets for the screened concert will go on sale Friday, June 19 at 11 a.m. at Ticketmaster. Tickets cost $100 per car/truck.
