EDMONTON, AB (Sept 2, 2020) – Live Nation Canada is excited to announce a drive-in concert series, presented by the AIR MILES Reward Program, at the Edmonton Inn and Conference Centre site in Edmonton.
Award winning Canadian songwriting icon Corb Lund will kick off the series with two back-to-back shows on Saturday, September 12 – a matinee performance at 4pm and an evening performance at 8pm. Electronic DJs and producers The Funk Hunters will also bring their lively performance to the stage on Saturday, September 19. Tickets for all shows will go on sale beginning Friday, September 4 at 10am at www.ticketmaster.ca. Additional concerts and artists will be announced in the coming weeks.
Hailing from the foothills of the Rocky Mountains with a long family lineage of ranchers and rodeo people, Corb Lund’s recent release Agricultural Tragic, available now at http://newwst.com/clat, has been met with critical and fan acclaim. Saving Country Music states “Alberta native Corb Lund has gone from the best kept secret of cowboy music to a living legend of it. His plainspoken yet cunning knack for poetry, combined with the real world perspective on the plights and joys of rural folks living under Western skies makes for some of the most compelling country and western music you can find.”
Located at the Edmonton Inn and Conference Centre at 11834 Kingsway NW, Edmonton, AB, AIR MILES Drive-In Concerts will give fans the option of either purchasing a drive-in spot for their vehicle or a reserved table in a socially distanced 18+ area with bar service. Food and non-alcoholic beverages will be available for purchase through the Grablr app and delivered to the vehicles, completely contactless.
Each event will comply with all health and safety standards per local jurisdictions and provincial regulations in order to protect fans, artists, crews and staff. This includes thorough sanitation throughout the event and hand-sanitizing stations will be available, along with a number of other preventive measures.
