Peter Taylor, Live Nation Promoter - “We are excited to bring Utilita Live From The Drive-In to fans across the UK. This outdoor concert series was created as a way to reimagine the live music experience during a time of social distancing by allowing fans to enjoy concerts in the safest way possible.

"Each event will comply with all official Government guidelines in order to protect fans, artists, crews and staff. We look forward to announcing some of the biggest names across UK music and bringing these fantastic artists to a city near you”.

Other artists set for the course include Bjorn Again, Jack Savoretti, Brand New Heavies, Lightning Seeds, Embrace, Ash, and Russell Watson.
