Are Drive-in Concerts the New Normal?
Time to get creative! Obviously, this Coronavirus isn’t going anywhere and the entertainment industry is feeling the repercussions from it. The live music industry is thinking outside the box and has come up with the brilliant idea for drive-in concerts. This is an excellent alternate to crowded, indoor amphitheaters. It’s a shame all those drive-in theaters shut down previously to the COVID0-19 pandemic! Is this the new normal?
