I'm not getting my hopes up for anything until well after summer is over. I Just hope I can get into a state park before the end of the season.

Could Drive-In Concerts Be In Our Future?
Posted by Robert Pasbani on May 1, 2020 at 1:05 pm

Has anybody else been having dreams about going to concerts? I've had multiple dreams about this in the last two weeks. I would assume most metalheads are really itching to go to a show right now, but, based on our surveying and some other polling, most of you do not feel like it's safe to do so until there is a vaccine, or some similar safety solution. But there could be a solution on the horizon.

With health experts saying large gatherings like concerts would likely be a part of the last wave of pulling back on social distancing, and that such a time is about a year to eighteen months away, some solutions need to be realized. Some drive-in movie theaters that have been abandoned are starting to open back up. Could something similar happen with concerts?

Danish singer-songwriter Mads Langer pulled off quite a feat, staging a concert with only six days notice. It sold five hundred tickets.

Fans were able to drive into the venue and tune their car radios to a short-range FM radio station, just like at a drive-in movie. Uniquely, the concert utilized Zoom to offer a direct visual connection in the cars. Instead of applauding, fans honked their horns in between songs.

It's certainly not the most ideal solution, but it's a thought? I'm wondering what the limitations would be of actually blasting the music through a PA in a scenario like this. ...

Watched this twice so far. What a great band. I'd like to see this line up live, in person, when this pandemic is over.

None. 2020 seemed to be a great concert year. Now I've got tickets for 700 € and no shows ....

Even though NZ has got Covid-19 stopped at the boarder, overseas acts aren't allowed in
without enduring a 14 day quarantine.....So nobody's coming.....

Now that the entire country is back at alert level one and out of lockdown "again"
local acts are starting to get tours organized so we could be about to get some gigs to attend
with limited audience numbers and social distancing guidelines in place with masks optional.....

I'm still not prepared to risk it just yet.....
