Live Nation has announced the cancellation of its Live From The Drive-In concert series due to fears over the impact of possible localised lockdowns in the UK.

Leicester and Blackburn are two areas already under tighter restrictions than the rest of the country due to higher rates of coronavirus cases, and with these targeted lockdowns now a part of the UK’s next phase in tackling the pandemic, Live Nation has decided its summer gigs – which would’ve featured the likes of The Streets and Dizzee Rascal performing at pop-up, drive-in cinema style settings – are no longer feasible.

“The Live From The Drive-In concert series will no longer proceed as planned this summer,” a statement reads. “We received huge support from artists, the live music production contractors, our headline sponsor Utilita along with our other partners, and of course you, the fans. However, the latest developments regarding localised lockdowns mean it has become impossible for us to continue with the series with any confidence.”

“We thank everyone for their support and eagerly await a time when we can watch live music together again. Full refunds will be issued directly to all ticket holders within the next seven days.”
