Singer and songwriter Casey Donovan gave a free music show on stage in Sydney on Thursday, giving her fans the opportunity to enjoy one of the first live music shows for the first time in months, but they had to stay in cars to watch the concert.
Concerts began to circulate to the auto audience, allowing artists to communicate with the audience physically, while maintaining social spacing during the Corona virus pandemic.
According to the newspaper “Daily Mail”, Donovan, who became famous after she won the Australian Idol program more than 10 years ago, presented the show in a car park that includes about 40 cars that the public can board.

To maintain social estrangement, the public is not allowed to leave their cars, but they can listen to the concert via the high-frequency (FM) wave on car radio devices to get sound to the purity or download windows and listen directly through them.
Instead of clapping or cheering, audiences use car horns to greet the artists.
Going to a gig is still a long way off but now there is a new way to see live music while still staying safe. Concerts from your car have started to pop up all over the world including at Tempe. https://t.co/OF81oZFF1j @myleehogan @caseydonovan # 7NEWS pic.twitter.com/w3xUhT8S4y

Drive-In Entertainment Australia, which organized the event, plans to offer more music performances in the car parks in the coming months so that more people can attend as the government’s continued isolation measures to tackle Covid-19 disease continue.
The epidemic forced many countries of the world, led by large countries with their capabilities and population, to take exceptional measures in their countries, varying from the flight ban to declaring a curfew and isolating entire regions, and even closing places of worship, to prevent the spread of deadly infections.
