Chicago Sun-Times - - ENTERTAINM­ENT - BY DAREL JEVENS, STAFF REPORTER djevens@sun­times.com | @dj­jevens

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 hiphop 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-8foot 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 ad­di­tional $25 fee per pas­sen­ger. Tick­ets are on sale now at ls­drivein.com.

Mick Jenk­ins (pic­tured at the Pitch­fork Mu­sic Fes­ti­val in 2016) is sched­uled to per­form a drive-in show at the Adler Plan­e­tar­ium park­ing lot. ASH­LEE REZIN GAR­CIA/SUN-TIMES
