The Texas Rangers are looking to show off their new park to fans in a summer concert series to be hosted outside Globe Life Field.

The regular season still has yet to get underway after the COVID-19 pandemic which in turn has delayed the opening of the highly anticipated Globe Life Field. The Texas Rangers are no doubt eager to show off their state of the art ballpark which features a retractable roof that should offset some of the Texas heat which summer Rangers’ home games have become notorious for.

Joey Gallo made comments last week on how the field plays offensively after he got the opportunity to take some batting practice at his new home which gave us at least a glimpse of what Globe Life Field might be. Now, fans will get their opportunity to view Globe Life Field as a concert venue, one of its alternate purposes, in the upcoming summer concert series announced by the Rangers on Tuesday.

The club announced the series in a tweet Tuesday and its complete with social distancing in consideration. The QuikTrip Concert in Your Car series is billed in in a simple quote, “Think, live concert meets drive-in movie.”

The concert series will feature four dates, June 4-7 and is bringing in some of the biggest names on the Texas Country music scene. Eli Young Band, long-connected with the Rangers franchise, opens the series up on Thursday, June 4 and will be followed by Whiskey Myers on Friday. Pat Green will take the socially-distanced stage on Saturday and rounding out the group is the Josh Abbott Band and Kevin Fowler.

Regarding the start of the actual season, chatter has started to increase regarding potential plans and alternatives that would allow a season start. Thrown around are various ideas that include shortened schedules, restricted fan access and alternative hosting sites as the league tries to salvage as much of the regular season as possible.
