Umphrey’s McGee will play a pair of drive-in concerts at Atlanta Motor Speedway in Atlanta, GA on October 9th and 10th, the band announced on Tuesday. Fresh off the prog-jam sextet’s two sold-out Chicago shows on September 5th and September 6th, the band explains in their announcement that they are “fine-tuning [their] processes to ensure the concert experience will be even better in Atlanta.”
Fans at the Umphrey’s McGee Atlanta drive-in shows, presented by Collectiv and Beware Presents, will be able to reserve a specific car spot in an interactive seat selection process. The shows will also feature audio delay towers, a new and improved merch plan, and extra time between doors and the start of the show to “get in, get settled, and get your tailgate on.” Unlike traditional concerts, fans are encouraged to bring chairs, coolers, and more to customize their space.
Tickets will include entry and parking for up to four people per vehicle, along with an immediately adjacent space for each group to dance and enjoy the show. More info including ticket tiers and an enhanced parking map for the Atlanta Motor Speedway drive-in shows can be found via the Umphrey’s McGee website. Tickets go on sale Friday, September 18th at noon ET.
