Drive-in concert featuring Blake Shelton to be shown in Raymond

July 20, 2020

Have you been feeling the COVID-19 blues? The town of Raymond is hosting a drive-in concert featuring country music star Blake Shelton, Gwen Stefani, and Trace Adkins. As Micah Quinn explains, Raymond is excited to be able to bring back concerts in a limited capacity to local residents, and expand on tourism.

The drive-in concert will not be a live show, but it will feature a huge screen showing the footage of Blake Shelton, Gwen Stefani, and Trace Adkins playing their songs.

Greg Robinson, the Director of Community Development and Human Resources for the Town of Raymond says, "Obviously, the best experience would be to have Blake Shelton, Gwen Stefani, and Trace Adkins come to Raymond. But, that's just not possible right now. So, we think this is the next best thing. This is the next best thing right behind seeing them live."

This is also the first time that Raymond has had a drive-in concert of this magnitude. "It's a really unique opportunity. Because we're the only drive-in in Alberta, it's the only place that you're gonna see it. We actually have a-- we've signed a contract to show more shows this year. Stay tuned," adds Robinson.

Raymond is anticipating a full sellout for the drive-in concert.

There will also be food trucks available on the night of the show.

The drive-in concert will take place in Raymond on Saturday, July 25.
