Bon Jovi is ready to rock your local drive-in theater.

A never-before-seen Bon Jovi concert filmed at the Paramount Theatre in Asbury Park, New Jersey will be broadcast to approximately 300 drive-ins and indoor theaters in North America and around the world on May 22.

The concert, filmed by the band in April, will begin the new season of the Encore Drive-In Nights series, which last year featured concerts from Metallica, Garth Brooks, Kane Brown, Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani.

“Bon Jovi is a global icon and we’re so happy that the band will be launching our 2021 concert season!” said Walter Kinzie, CEO at Encore Drive-In Nights, in a statement. “The pandemic has taught us that there are new avenues for live entertainment and this model is one of the safest and most innovative options for world-class, fun events for the whole family. There are millions of fans who don’t usually attend live shows, whether it’s because they live far away from the big touring arenas or because of the cost. Artists can now connect with these fans in a completely new way.”
