ORIGINAL STORY: 

Drive-in shows are a great way to see live events from your car! The first couple that The Basie offered sold out quickly...so I'm sure these two will, also.

These two large-scale events live on stage at Monmouth Park in Oceanport will be fantastic! Gates open at 5 pm, shows start at 7 pm, 4 people per vehicle max.

On Wednesday, July 29, it's with ALMOST QUEEN!

And then on Thursday, July 30, it's comedian ILIZA SCHLESINGER’s ‘ The Forever Tour.'

Tickets for both Almost Queen ($110 per vehicle, $250 / $199 gold circle) and Iliza ($135 per vehicle,, $199 /$250 gold circle) go on sale this Thursday, July 2 at 10 am exclusively via Ticketmaster. Only touchless, mobile tickets administered through the Ticketmaster app will be valid for these performances. CLICK HERE for the Apple app. CLICK HERE for the Android app.

These drive-in events benefit The Count Basie Center for the Arts with a portion of the proceeds going to the NJ Arts and Culture Recovery Fund.

Almost Queen is the most authentic Queen live show since the days of the beloved, iconic band itself. This is a 4-piece band complete with 4-part harmonies and intricate music, with the costumes that captures the essence of the experience of Queen. Almost Queen has, in the past, sold out Starland Ballroom and the Stone Pony Summer Stage!

Iliza is one of the leading comedians around whose fifth Netflix stand-up special UnVeiled premiered last November and delves into her journey of getting married! Her past specials include War Paint, Freezing Hot, and Confirmed Kills. Her previous Netflix special in 2018, Elder Millennial, is the subject of Iliza Shlesinger: Over & Over, her 'fan-u-mentary' which is currently streaming and gives you an inside look into what goes into the making of one of her specials.
