Marc Rebillet, the electronic music producer and YouTuber known for streaming his jams from the comfort of a bathrobe, has announced the Drive-In Concert Tour, taking place throughout this summer. Yes, this summer.
The announcement comes at a time when the entire live events industry needs it most, as it has been gutted due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
In a video posted to Facebook, Rebillet exclaimed, “I am coming to drive-in movie theaters and playing motherf*cking shows, dude!” He made sure to clarify that social distancing will be observed at all events and that he and his team have worked extremely hard to ensure the safety and well-being of all who choose to attend.
Presented by HOTBOX, the tour will kick off in Charlotte, NC on June 11th before heading to Kansas City, KS (6/18); Tulsa, OK (6/20); Fort Worth, TX (6/25, 6/26); and Houston, TX (7/2, 7/3), with additional dates to be announced.

Rebillet’s announcement comes just days after reports of drive-in concerts occurring in European countries like Denmark and Lithuania. The concept of drive-in concerts has only grown since then, as promoters large and small look to this concept as an alternative during this unprecedented concert hiatus. You can likely expect more acts attempt to follow suit.
The promoter has always been entrepreneurial .. great creativity will prevail for live experiences from this time of reset https://t.co/BxRuTH0fdj
