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.
Took my grandson to his 1st concert tonight. Nickelback was Amazing. I've been coming here for concerts for Many years, and always a Great time. Every employee I've came in contact with have Always been helpful,and polite. Thank you for making my fun nights out Amazing ! 😊👍
Looking forward to seeing Eddie Money for the 4th time at the traditional Memorial Day weekend DTE opening concert. KUDOS TO " THE MONEY MAN", and kudos to DTE for bringing him back once again. Of course not forgetting those servicemen and women who have given the ultimate sacrifice so that we can all enjoy a great concert like this one.
Great time at the Train concert. Everyone was friendly, helpful and we had lots of fun. Only complaint is traffic control after the concert could have been better #crazydrivers!
Never a good view of the stage. I have sat in several areas of the pavilion in addition to lawn and have yet to find a spot with reasonable line of vision. Parking is a complete nightmare, traffic is a normal part of leaving any venue, but here it is complete unorganized chaos. Lastly are prices. Again prices run high everywhere but I have paid the most for drinks, food etc. here. I only come because unfortunately my favorite performers always play here. Just the price you pay I guess haha.
TOOL June 7th. Don't even try! DTE lets ticket brokers buy up tons of tickets, then you pay 'BIG DOLLARS' through these...I guess 'legal scalpers'? Not good DTE. A $50.00 lawn ticket is now $190.00. And going up bu the minute until their gone. I wonder if TOOL knew about this what they would think? Somebody's making BIG money off of they're tickets to come and see them! Oh well..it would of been cool to see them. I cant afford $2,000 to get to the pavilion, let alone $200.00 and climbing through these 'scumbag' ticket brokers! "See ya' on the other side."
