Drive-in concerts is getting more and more common these days. So far VNV Nation and several others have tried this concept, in the harbor close to the Release HQ for instance (not VNV Nation though). A while ago, Gary Numan announced he will join Utilita’s ”Live from the Drive-in” series.
He will perform a dozen drive-in concerts in the UK in August and September.
