Mark your calendars and get your tickets to be part of one the first drive-in concerts at the Jersey Shore!

Southside Johnny & the Asbury Jukes will headline the Count Basie Center for the Arts' "Drive-In Live" on Saturday, July 11th at Monmouth Park. Tickets will go on sale at Ticketmaster.com at 10 a.m., FRIDAY JUNE 5th. Tickets will cost $150 per carload (4 occupant maximum).

The Basie & Monmouth Park will still need to abide by the state's social distancing rules, so here are the guidelines:

  • Vehicles will be spaced approximately 9’apart. Windows may remain open at this distance.
  • Cars will park in a staggered fashion to achieve spacing and best visibility.
  • Patrons must remain inside their vehicle cabins.
  • Patrons may only leave their vehicles only to use restrooms, and will be required to wear masks and maintain social distancing.
  • Portable, single-stall restrooms will be cleaned between patrons.
  • Passenger vehicles only. No motorcycles, buses, party buses, limousines, bicycles, or foot traffic allowed. ADA accessible vehicles will be permitted.
  • All tickets are general admission and spots cannot be reserved.
  • Event is rain or shine.
  • Concert will take place in the Grandstand General Parking Lot. Cars must enter via Port-au-Peck Avenue.
  • Alcohol will not be served.
  • Absolutely no tailgating or out-of-vehicle gatherings.
  • Attendees will be able to hear the concerts via their radio, details day of show.
  • Cars with more than four occupants will be turned away without refund.
  • Vehicles are subject to search upon entry.
  • No pets allowed.

That's a whole lot of restrictions, so make sure you adhere to the guidelines so you don't buy tickets then just get turned away or thrown out.

We've seen plenty of drive-in movies pop up around the shore, so it'll be interesting to see if drive-in concerts are part of a wave of the future! If New Jersey is going to be at the forefront of this trend, there aren't many artists that are better suited to kick off the party than Southside Johnny & the Asbury Jukes.
