Musicians Aaron Lewis (Staind) and Sully Erna (Godsmack) will team up for ‘The American Drive-In Tour,’ which will see the two rockers dishing out their hits together, side-by-side, in an intimate and unplugged setting.
Here’s more info on the upcoming Danny Wimmer Presents-produced jaunt, which officially kicks off in October:
It’s one of the first 2020 drive-in live rock concert tours planned across multiple cities, and promises a once-in-a-lifetime event for fans, featuring a special evening of hits, covers and conversation with Aaron and Sully appearing together on stage.
The nationwide trek will follow current local health guidelines for fans’ safety and enjoyment. Some shows will be drive-in events with patrons in or adjacent to their cars, and other shows will feature viewing from socially distanced fan “pods” or tables designed for up to four people.
Me and Aaron Lewis? Onstage together…acoustic? Do I need to say more? Just don’t miss it! It may never happen again.
Sully and I have been friends for 25 years. We’ve been talking about doing something for the last 10 years. The time has finally come. I couldn’t be more excited to be bringing this to you in such strange times.
DWP President Joe Litvag declares:
We’re eager to get back to what we love, and we’re determined to keep the music alive and keep the rock community strong during these times. Aaron and Sully on stage together like this is something that none of us have seen before but have always hoped would happen one day. We’re thrilled to be a part of it.
Tickts go on sale starting September 15 at this location.
