Promoters Live Nation have today announced a series of drive-in concerts taking place across the UK this summer, including in Birmingham.

The concerts will provide a safe alternative to the many events that have been cancelled due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

Utilita Live From The Drive-In will take place near Resorts World Arena and the NEC in Birmingham, as well as in many other UK cities.

The concept will see 300-car gigs being performed by, among others, Tony Hadley (7 August), Gary Numan, Cream Classical Ibiza, The Streets, Ash, Skindred and Dizzie Rascal.

Utilita Live From The Drive-In will also offer carefully curated family events for kids of all ages, from West End theatre extravaganzas and interactive science shows, to entertainment featuring live music, DJs and well-known TV stars and characters from children's television.

The concert series will run from mid-July until September. Attendees will be able to stand outside their vehicles in allocated spaces, or sit in their own fold-out chairs. However, they will be prevented from bringing their own food.

Live Nation will be adhering to the government's current social-distancing rules to protect fans, artists, crews and staff at all times.
