The Kraft Group has been full of ideas to help the public have some entertainment during the COVID-19 restrictions. This new idea will be music to your ears.

At the 7:00 p.m. Board of Selectman meeting on Tuesday, Foxborough Town Manager William Keegan announced the details involving the Kraft Group applying for a Temporary Entertainment License for an outdoor concert series in the parking lot at Gillette Stadium.

According to Keegan, the concerts would take place on the weekends and be about an hour long. The concert capacity would be 400 cars with up to 4 people per car. The price of admission would be per car.

The concept is based on the huge success of the temporary drive-in movie theater taking place at Patriot Place.

Keegan stated that music would come through the vehicle’s stereo speakers and cars would be spaced for COVID-19 safety guidelines.

If successful, the Kraft Group would add a separate matinee concert in addition to the evening show. The concerts would finish no later than 9:00 p.m.

The first show would take place the last weekend in June or the first weekend in July and subsequent shows would take place into August. Any potential football games scheduled to take place would take precedent.

Keegan went on to say that no alcohol or food would be served at the concerts, only at Patriot Place. Bathrooms would also be sanitized and security and police details would work the concert series.

All Board members were in favor of the idea and would be likely voting in favor of the measure at the meeting next week. With state approval, the Kraft Group would then begin booking the acts.
