Encore Drive-In Nights Show Set for June 12
Diamond-selling Duo Joins Bon Jovi, Garth Brooks, Metallica & Other Iconic Artists with One-Night-Only Concert Events
FORT WORTH, Texas–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Florida Georgia Line will headline the next Encore Drive-In Nights concert, which will be broadcast to hundreds of outdoor drive-ins and select cinemas across North America and around the world Saturday night, June 12. FGL’s performance will feature special guests Nelly, Chase Rice and Rachel Wammack.
The one-night-only show will highlight the Diamond-selling duo’s biggest hits as well as new fan favorites from their current LIFE ROLLS ON (BMLG Records) album, including consecutive chart-topping singles “Long Live” – dubbed “The Song That Will Have You Grabbing a Cup To Toast” by Billboard – and the “country-rock jam tailor made for summertime” (The Tennessean) “I Love My Country.”
“We’re so excited to start playing shows again and can’t wait to bring this special one to all of our fans around the world,” shares FGL’s Tyler Hubbard and Brian Kelley. “The night will be full of hits, good vibes, and a few surprises. Everybody come on out June 12!”
“We are so excited that Encore Drive-In Nights concerts are back and who better to welcome summer than these party-starters themselves?” said Walter Kinzie, CEO of Encore Drive-In Nights. “This show provides fans all across the country, including those that don’t typically go to concerts, the chance to see FGL like never before!”
The announcement by FGL follows the recent news that Bon Jovi will kick off the new 2021 Encore Drive-In Nights Concert season on May 22. Encore Drive-In Nights pioneered in-person entertainment in the COVID-era last year with performances by Garth Brooks, Blake Shelton & Gwen Stefani, Metallica, Kane Brown and other amazing musical guests for one-night-only concerts broadcast to fans at outdoor venues across the country.
FGL has been making history since 2012, as the first and only Country act to achieve two RIAA DIAMOND-certified singles with 11X PLATINUM, #1 breakout “Cruise” and 10X PLATINUM, #1 “Meant to Be” with Bebe Rexha. The global superstars have tallied 13.2 billion+ streams, sold more than 40 million tracks and 4.7 million albums worldwide, stacked 18 career #1 singles and played to over 4 million fans spanning massive arena and stadium headline tours.
The Encore Drive-In Nights series is presented by leading event production company Encore Live, which has partnered with drive-in theaters across the globe to provide music fans world-class entertainment in a safe way in the Covid era and beyond.
