The Beach Boys & Ziggy Marley to headline one of the first live stadium concerts since pandemic
On the heels of its wildly successful Concerts in Your Car series, CBF Productions is pleased to announce its partnership with The San Diego Padres to bring live and in-person stadium concerts back to Southern California at Petco Park this Memorial Day weekend! The concert series will kick off on Saturday, May 29th with Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductees The Beach Boys, alongside special guests John Stamos and Mark McGrath. The following day on Sunday, May 30th, Grammy-winning reggae star Ziggy Marley will play a special tribute concert to his father, reggae icon Bob Marley.
Tickets for both concerts start at $29 and go on sale to the general public on Thursday, May 6th at 10 am PT via padres.com.
Last year CBF Productions pioneered the drive-in trend, creating Concerts in Your Car – California’s first “in your car” and socially-distanced live event series. CBF Productions has staged more than 150 drive-in events since its June 2020 launch at the Ventura County Fairgrounds, offering everything from comedy shows and concerts, to a family-friendly circus and movies. Prior performances include Kaskade, Third Eye Blind, Sublime, Dj Snoopadelic (Snoop Dogg) and many more.
“We are excited to continue expanding our offerings in partnership with Petco Park with these two safe shows at America’s finest ballpark,” says CBF Productions Founder and CEO, Vincenzo Giammanco. “The growth and success we achieved during such a trying time for live events last year really taught us that the sky’s the limit.”
Both in-person concerts will be held at the iconic Petco Park ballpark, with the stage set up near second base. Petco Park’s open-air environment provides for one of the safest concert experiences in San Diego County, with the concert’s capacity starting at 6,000 attendees. Standard COVID safety protocols from Padres home games will remain in place, including guests two years and older wearing masks at all times while not actively eating or drinking. Hundreds of hand sanitizer stations are available throughout, and the ballpark is cleaned regularly and sanitized by the “Petco Park Clean Team.”
