Following the success of the Garth Brooks drive-in concert that aired in June 2020, Encore Live set out to deliver a branded concert series. Encore Drive-In Nights launched its first concert experience featuring country artist and star of The Voice, Blake Shelton, with very special guests Gwen Stefani and Trace Adkins. Encore Live’s second proprietary offering proved yet again that fans are craving safe ways to gather and enjoy their favorite artists during this unique COVID-19 environment.
Encore Live fostered its exclusive network of nearly 300 independent Drive-In and Outdoor theaters to create the first and largest distribution footprint for music experiences in the COVID-19 era. As part of an ongoing summer drive-in concert series, Encore Live launched the Encore Drive-In Nights brand, with Blake Shelton as its first headlining act. The goal was to safely bring new music and an unforgettable experience for friends, fans and families to enjoy together.

• Consumer Delight
As the first concert produced as part of the Encore Drive-In Nights brand, Encore Live leveraged its creative partners to create a high-quality, pre-recorded experience that was overwhelmingly referred to as being as good as a live concert. Consumer feedback from this one-night-only show was highly positive, with strong emphasis on the cinematic quality of the more than two hour show. For many concert goers, it was a welcome night out that allowed them to feel a sense of normalcy in the pandemic era, all while connecting to the music and their surrounding community.
