Live-In Drive-In Schedule

 

So how will it all work during this crazy summer of 2020?
Fans can expect contactless ticket scanning through their vehicle window and then will be shown to their designated parking space. There, they will enjoy the show from inside their own vehicle. Guests can leave their cars, wearing a mask, to use one of the portable bathroom locations. Bathrooms will be continuously sanitized throughout each event. There will also be dedicated buffer space around each vehicle to ensure social distancing. 

The Live-In / Drive-In Concert Series presented by Budweiser Zero at Citizens Bank Park will comply with current health and safety standards per local jurisdictions and state regulations to protect fans, artists, crews, and staff. This includes thorough, ongoing sanitation throughout the event and hand-sanitizing stations will be available, along with many other preventive measures. For more information on the health and safety precautions Live Nation Philadelphia and the Phillies are taking, event guidelines, and FAQs, visit http://www.phillies.com/drivein. Details subject to change based on local guidelines and talent. Events are rain or shine.

“We are excited to enable music fans to once again enjoy live music safely as we unveil our Live-In / Drive-In series at Citizens Bank Park,” said Geoff Gordon, Regional President, Live Nation Philadelphia. “We are grateful to the Philadelphia Phillies, the City of Philadelphia, the State of Pennsylvania, and the musicians and artists who are excited to get back out and perform live on stage in a socially distanced environment for their fans in Philly again.”

Tune in to BEN-FM this Saturday morning at 7:30 to hear Geoff Gordon tell us all about the new  Live In / Drive-In Concert Series presented by Budweiser Zero at Citizens Bank Park on this week’s episode of BEN Around Philly with Kristen Herrmann.
