The Garth Brooks “World’s Largest Drive-in Concert” show at Lancaster Event Center is sold out.
Some of the 300 locations where the Brooks concert is playing have a second screening of the concert set for later Saturday night. But because the event center’s concert won’t begin until dusk — about 9:15 p.m. — a second show would have had to start around midnight, which was too late, said general manager Amy Dickerson.
Brooks and the event center sold 800 tickets at $100 per car for Saturday’s concert, which will be shown on two large screens. A concert sound system will provide the sound for those seated outside their cars and in a “lawn chair group seating” section that will be marked off on the parking lot.
The show will also be broadcast by closed-circuit FM radio for those who choose to sit in their vehicles.
Unlike most locations, the event center will be holding a pre-party before the concert screening. It will feature Omaha country band Silas Creek with food trucks on the grounds and beverage sales. The pre-party begins at 7 p.m. Gates open at 6 o'clock.
The concert is the first major event for the event center since the coronavirus pandemic shut down venues in March.
