Drive-In St. Louis to Extend Two More Weeks

Drive-In St. Louis to Extend
Two More Weeks 

Largest Drive-In Concert Venue in America Adds More Bands

Who: Drive-In St. Louis  

What: Due to the positive public response, new Drive-In Concerts and Movies have been scheduled along and one new high school graduation event.  

When: Five new event dates added through mid-June. Tickets go on sale today, June 3, at noon at

Where: POWERplex – former St. Louis Mills Mall, Hazelwood, MO. 

How: Covid-19 Health restrictions are being met through social distancing as patrons at the events will have their own “party pods” next to their vehicles for the concert and movie nights.

With this weekend nearly sold out for Trixie Delight on Friday, and red-hot Blues artist, Jeremiah Johnson on Saturday, all eyes turn to the next two weeks. Today at noon, the tickets will go on-sale for five new concert dates: 

  • Thursday, June 11 - The Schwag, a Grateful Dead Experience, followed by a movie.

In addition, Drive-In St. Louis has added another high school graduation date to the commencement line-up, as Incarnate Word Academy will celebrate their class of 2020. This graduating class will bring our total number of seniors crossing the stage up to 2,806. 
The overwhelming success of the largest Drive-In concert and movie venue in country, has prompted the promoters to extend another two weeks into mid-June. 

The great diversity of local and regional bands helped to sell out 6 of the 11 concerts and the weekday family nights during the week attracting an average of 300 cars. “The sense of community and getting back to a level of ‘normalcy’ was really incredible each and every night,” said Bill Fogarty of Fogarty Services, the lead production team on the concerts. At Saturday’s Super Jam sold out concert, the crowd was asked if they wanted to continue the concerts and movie nights. “The horns honked non-stop for a minute. I guess that’s the new standing ovation,” said Fogarty. 

General Admission parking passes each night are $40 per car in advance and $50 at the gate with a six person per-car limit.
Guests can reserve spots in the front two rows for $60 per car in advance and $70 at the gate.
