DTE Energy Music Theatre
Originally known as Pine Knob Music Theatre (due to its proximity to the nearby Pine Knob ski area and golf course) when it opened in June 1972, the 15,040-seat amphitheater (6,189 seats in Bud Light Pavilion; 8,851 on the United Shore Lawn) recently celebrated its 40th anniversary in 2012.
Palace Sports & Entertainment purchased Pine Knob in 1990, revamping the venue with various improvements, all while continuing to give its fans one of the busiest and most diverse performance schedules its fans expect. The venue became DTE Energy Music Theatre in 2002 when DTE Energy purchased the naming rights to the amphitheater.
What more can I say about this wonderful facility. Been goin to concerts for years. Love the crowd in the parking lot. Used to work there in the late 70's. 👍👍🍹👏🍺
Seen wiz n snoop here was sick. Nice place to see a performance. Parking lot was flooded badly from rain, Like a good luck driving kind of flooded! Awesome theater.
What a great location for a concert. It is a beautiful setting. We saw Twenty One Pilots and they put on an amazing show. This was a great venue to see a great band. I think all seats, even lawn seats are probably great. The crowd was peaceful, happy and respectful. The only downside is it was very tough to find a way out. Take your own car, or have a limo waiting. Getting an Uber or taxi after a concert is next to impossible.
My husband and I like to go here for outdoor concerts. Drink prices are a little high & many concert goers are to. I would not take any child under 16 here. The atmosphere is usually very adult.
Great as a music venue, but drinks and food are ridiculously over priced. $8 for a soda, $4 for water, and you can't being your own! At least you can bring food.
