Southside Johnny and the Asbury Jukes to Rock Inaugural Drive-In Concert at Monmouth Park
Southside Johnny & the Asbury Jukes will headline New Jersey’s first large-scale drive-in concert at Monmouth Park in Oceanport on Saturday, July 11. Up to 1,000 vehicles, with a maximum of four passengers in each one, can be accommodated. Tickets are set to go on sale at 10 a.m. this Friday (June 5).
“The Asbury Jukes and I are so excited that we can play this first of its kind live concert and help get New Jersey started on a quick and healthy return to normal,” said “Southside” Johnny Lyon in a statement. “Why sit at home when ‘We’re Havin’ A Party,’ drive-in style? We’ll safely see everyone July 11th.”
Vehicles will be spaced approximately nine feet apart in a staggered fashion for “visibility” and patrons must remain inside them. No tailgating will be allowed, and masks and social distancing will be required at restrooms. No motorcycles, buses, limousines, bicycles or foot traffic will be allowed, but ADA accessible vehicles will be permitted. The music will be heard via FM radio.
“Touchless, mobile” general admission ticket sales for the rain or shine event, priced between $150 and $250, go on sale on June 5 at 10 a.m. EST through Ticketmaster. “Drive-In” live is presented by The Basie Presents and World Subaru and will benefit the Count Basie Center for the Arts with a portion of proceeds going to the New Jersey Pandemic Relief Fund.
