Given that the live music scene has been on a major pause due to the coronavirus COVID-19 outbreak, it’s no secret at this point that promoters and event producers are looking for new, innovative ideas in how to salvage 2020 as a year where humans can still gather at least in some capacity. And the team working with The Miami Dolphins have come up with one of the best ways to get people together while still apart: turn Hard Rock Stadium into a huge drive-in theater up to 230 cars.
We are excited to announce an open-air and drive-in theater that will showcase classic @MiamiDolphins content, classic films, host commencement ceremonies and more.
These experiences will stay in accordance with social distance policies.

The Sun Sentinel was all over the story as it dropped earlier this week.
The idea is a key part of The Outdoor Theaters at Hard Rock, a sports and entertainment complex that also includes an open-air venue on the property’s South Plaza for small groups to watch entertainment on a large screen.
The two venues, announced by the NFL team on Tuesday, will showcase classic Miami Dolphins content from the team’s 54-year history, as well as classic films, concerts, commencement ceremonies and other events.
The Spafford gang just pulled off a flawless victory on their first drive-in concert in Arizona, and with Marc Rebillet booking a whole tour around this idea, we can’t wait to see when Miami actually books a few concerts at this sort of venue following their leads.
