Garth Brooks has joined the drive-in concert revolution by announcing plans to headline a socially distanced gig, which will be beamed across America

The country superstar admits he has been in talks to stage a show for fans to watch from their cars in the past but the logistics have never worked out – until now.

Announcing the big concert on Good Morning America on Thursday, the Friends in Low Places singer explained, "This one guy came to me and said, 'Look, we can put 300, 400 drive-in theaters together if you will create a concert solely for the drive-ins. We can have families jump in the car, come out on Saturday night'.

"It's pretty cool. They're gonna run it just like a regular concert but this going to be all over North America, one night only… This is a reason to get out of the house but at the same time you get to follow all the COVID rules from every individual state… and stay within the guidelines of social distancing."

He adds, "This is the perfect way for us to still get to play music and still follow all the rules that we're under right now."

Tickets will cost $100 per vehicle. A date has yet to be confirmed.
