* Updated to note that a third show has been added.
A week after the first major drive-in concert was scheduled in Southern California, there is another on the horizon, this one from promoter Nederlander Concerts.
Andrew McMahon will perform three nights, July 10, and 12, at the City National Grove of Anaheim as part of Nederlander’s Drive-In OC series. The series gets under way July 3 and 4 with movie screenings (“Shrek” and “Independence Day”) before turning to live music the following weekend.
McMahon will be performing to celebrate the 15th anniversary of the Jack’s Mannequin album, “Everything in Transit.” He will also play songs from his other two projects, Andrew McMahon in the Wilderness and Something Corporate.
Organizers say the concerts will offer the “most contact-less experience possible,” including mobile concessions and merchandise and “virtual” restroom queues. “Safety and wellness are our top priorities,” said Jordan Harding, the Grove’s GM. “We are working closely with both Orange County and the City of Anaheim to ensure all recommended guidelines set forth by the CDC and State of California are met or exceeded to provide the best entertainment experience for our fans and staff in a responsible manner.” As for audio, fans can listen over headphones, from their car stereo or through Bluetooth-enabled speakers.
