Gibson City drive-in movie theater holding Garth Brooks concert Saturday

Entertainment

GIBSON CITY, Ill. (WMBD)– Harvest Moon Twin Drive-in Theatre, located in Gibson City, is playing host to Garth Brook’s concert experience this weekend. The theatre sits on 11 acres of green grass right on Route 47 just outside the city limits. It’s about 30 Minutes from Champaign-Urbana and 35 minutes from Bloomington-Normal.

The one-night-only experience presented by EncoreLive is set for Saturday, June 27.

Harvest Moon Twin Drive-in’s manager Ben Harroun said Thursday it’s 11:59 p.m. showing still has available tickets. Price runs $100 per car/truck.

“It’s going to be a good time,” said Harroun. “It’s going to be something unique. I wish we could afford to have Garth Brooks play in person at our theater, but with what he brings in, it’s just not physically possible to do. So, this is the next best option and it’s still going to be a fun show no one has ever seen before on the big screen. We do still have some tickets left over for our late-night show, so if we have night owls who don’t mind coming out late…it’s going to be fun.”
