JUNE 11 UPDATE:
Due to the City of Hoover’s curfew, Black Jacket Symphony is canceling their performance of Quenn’s “A Night at the Opera”. The event was scheduled for tonight June 11. The Black Jacket Symphony posted this message on their Facebook page:
The city of Hoover has informed us that they are choosing to continue their curfew and are requiring that we cancel our performance of Queen’s “A Night at the Opera”.
We are devastated. The stage is built, the band is in rehearsals, and we have spent weeks meticulously prepping for an incredible event. At a time like this, we feel music is a universal language that builds community and wish we could have provided our community with that outlet.
All tickets will be refunded.

The Black Jacket Symphony has announced some adjusted dates for their Concerts from the Car schedule, with some shows being canceled.
The statement reads:
Due to the events that have transpired this week and the resulting curfews in place, the Black Jacket Symphony’s upcoming schedule for “Concerts from the Car” is having to be adjusted. Our June 4th performance of The Beatles “Abbey Road” will now take place on Friday, June 19th. After careful consideration, we have decided to focus all of our efforts towards our performances of Queen’s “A Night at the Opera” (still scheduled for June 11th) and The Beatles “Abbey Road” (rescheduled for Friday, June 19th). Our performances of Journey’s “Escape” and Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers “Damn the Torpedoes” are regrettably being canceled.
Our goal is always to provide a fun, affordable, safe night of entertainment for music fans and we feel like this is needed more now than ever. Tickets start at $80 per carload and are available at www.blackjacketsymphony.com
It’s like a drive-in but for music, not movies. The Black Jacket Symphony returns to the live stage June 19 with “Concerts from the Car”, a live concert series in the parking lot of the Hoover Met Complex.

- June 19 – The Beatles “Abbey Road”
One ticket admits one vehicle. Individual occupants do not need additional tickets. Each vehicle will be designated a double-parking space upon arrival and patrons are required to remain in their vehicle to watch the performance. The parking lot will open at 6:00 p.m. each night, with each show starting at 8:00 p.m.
Fans are allowed and encouraged to bring their own beverages and food. None will be available for purchase on-site.
The goal of the series is to provide a fun night of entertainment while maintaining appropriate social-distancing. “We have worked tirelessly to convert a giant parking lot into a music venue that will give fans a great experience from their car,” says Jason Rogoff, event organizer and producer of the Black Jacket Symphony. “The fan experience has always been at the forefront of our shows, and this is no different. Our team has simulated the view from every parking space to understand sightlines while factoring in different vehicle heights. We’re working with the best audio engineers to transmit a signal to a car stereo. We are excited to give music fans an incredible concert experience in an environment that is unique to the times.”
Ticket Price: $80-$220, including taxes and fees.
UPDATED STATEMENT FROM THE BLACK JACKET SYMPHONY”:
“The response and feedback we have received for our “Concerts From The Car” series has been incredible and appreciated. We have announced a new tier of parking at a lower price point of $80 and are releasing a limited number of Oversize SUV/Truck Parking Passes. We are excited to provide four incredible nights of entertainment that are unique to the times and hope to see you at the Hoover Met in June!”
