While the stage is quiet at Huntington Bank Pavilion, normally a hotbed of summer concerts, live music soon will ring out from the nearby parking lot of the Adler Planetarium.

The space is being dubbed the Lakeshore Drive-In, and planners are promising a series of live music and comedy events there for fans to enjoy from (or near) their cars. The first, headlined by Chicago hip-hop artists Mick Jenkins and Ric Wilson, is scheduled for 7 p.m July 29.

Cars will be limited to 200 at the site at 1632 S. Linn White Dr. Every other 12-foot-by-8-foot parking space will be left open for social distancing. Patrons may sit on or near their cars but must stay within their space unless going to or from the restrooms.

Anyone out of a car must wear a mask. Outside food and drink are prohibited, but concessions will be delivered to patrons ordering through a touchless smartphone system.

Admission to next week’s show will cost $110 or $170 per car, with an addition $25 fee per passenger. Tickets are on sale now at lsdrivein.com.

Artist management company Audisbliss is running the venue.
