Bon Jovi has been announced as the first performer for the Encore Drive-In Nights 2021 concert series with a one-night-only broadcast at drive-in and outdoor theaters across the globe.

“Bon Jovi is a global icon and we’re so happy that the band will be launching our 2021 concert season!” Walter Kinzie, CEO at Encore Drive-In Nights said in a statement.

“The pandemic has taught us that there are new avenues for live entertainment and this model is one of the safest and most innovative options for world-class, fun events for the whole family. There are millions of fans who don’t usually attend live shows, whether it’s because they live far away from the big touring arenas or because of the cost. Artists can now connect with these fans in a completely new way.”
