BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WBRC) - UPDATE: The Black Jacket Symphony’s performance in Hoover scheduled for June 11 has been canceled.
The Black Jacket Symphony announced the cancellation on its Facebook page, saying it is “devastated.” The cause for the cancellation is Hoover’s continuing curfew. All tickets will be refunded.
ORIGINAL: It’s like a drive-in but for music, not movies.
The Black Jacket Symphony returns to the live stage June 11 with “Concerts from the Car”, a live concert series in the parking lot of the Hoover Met Complex.
The Black Jacket Symphony will perform entire classic rock albums with the audio broadcasting to your car stereo.
The band will perform two of its most popular shows - The Beatles “Abbey Road” and Queen’s “A Night at the Opera” ft. Marc Martel. You can find more information at www.blackjacketsymphony.com.
- June 11 – Queen’s “A Night at the Opera” ft. Marc Martel
- June 19 – The Beatles “Abbey Road”
One ticket admits one vehicle. Individual occupants do not need additional tickets.
Each vehicle will be designated a double-parking space upon arrival and patrons are required to remain in their vehicle to watch the performance. The parking lot will open at 6:00 p.m. each night, with each show starting at 8:00 p.m.
Fans are allowed and encouraged to bring their own beverages and food. None will be available for purchase on site.
The goal of the series is to provide a fun night of entertainment while maintaining appropriate social-distancing. “We have worked tirelessly to convert a giant parking lot into a music venue that will give fans a great experience from their car,” says Jason Rogoff, event organizer and producer of the Black Jacket Symphony. “The fan experience has always been at the forefront of our shows, and this is no different. Our team has simulated the view from every parking space to understand sight lines while factoring in different vehicle heights. We’re working with the best audio engineers to transmit a signal to a car stereo. We are excited to give music fans an incredible concert experience in an environment that is unique to the times.”
