Kaiser Chiefs, Sigala, KT Tunstall, The Streets and more at new Drive-In concerts at the Lincolnshire Showground, plus Tom Seals at the Newark Showground
Tickets are on sale for live concerts with a difference at the Lincolnshire Showground.
While traditional concerts are on hold at the moment, new ‘drive-in’ concerts will be starting at the venue, located just outside Lincoln, from July 23. They kick off with a performance by ex-Spandau Ballet’s Tony Hadley. That’s followed by Abba tribute Bjorn Again on the same night.
Others acts on the bill from July onwards are DJ Sigala, Russell Watson, Kaiser Chiefs, The Streets, The Brand New Heavies, Ash, The Zutons, KT Tunstall, Beverley Knight and many more top names. For the full line-up and tickets click here.
Delivered by Utilita Live From the Drive-In, the unique concept allows fans to enjoy concerts in a ‘one-of-a-kind’ drive-in setting from their own private individual viewing zones next to their cars.
The Lincolnshire Showground is one of 12 venues across the UK offering the experience.
One difference to a normal concert is there will be far fewer people - around 300 cars per show. The video below shows how the concept works.
Fans will get their own dedicated area next to their vehicle to stand, or they can bring folding chairs to sit in, whilst complying with social distancing requirements, and enjoy the performance.
Concert quality sound from the live stage is provided with a full state of the art sound system and lighting rig, plus High definition LED screens.
Further afield, in Newark, a similar event is taking place on July 9, with Tom Seals performing with his full band at the Nightflix Drive-in.
When lockdown happened Tom was stuck in the Suez Canal performing. He managed to get to Miami and then back to the UK with difficulty. The day after he got back, he was performing an online concert which had already been advertised.
He was due to be performing at Ronnie Scott’s and then doing a Boogie Woogie Spectacular with Jools Holland; and then off to New York. A TV pilot was also due to be launched when lockdown happened so that went online, too, instead.
Tom’s Baked Potato duet with Matt Lucas to raise money for #FeedNHS - Matt Lucas and Tom Seals has raised well over a million pounds so far.
