Garth Brooks’ special concert for drive-in theaters around the country has added an Atlanta viewing.

The rain or shine show - created exclusively for this event and recorded in Nashville, according to a representative for Brooks - will play at the Starlight Drive-In at 9:30 and 11:30 p.m. on June 27. Tickets are general admission and cost $100 per car or truck (including fees). They can only be purchased via www.ticketmaster.com/garthbrooks starting at noon June 19.

The Macon Centreplex and the Tiger Drive-in, in the town of Tiger, will also offer the concert (at 9 p.m. and 9:30 p.m., respectively), which Brooks is creating exclusively for the event. In typical Brooks record-setting fashion, the 300-plus screens that will broadcast the concert make it the largest one-night show to play at outdoor theaters across the United States and Canada.

"I am so excited to get to play again. I have missed it so much and want to get back to it," Brooks said. "This drive-in concert allows us all to get back to playing live music without the uncertainty of what would be the result to us as a community. This is old school, new school, and perfect for the time we are in."
The event will be produced by event production company Encore Live.
