DTE has made some noticeable improvements to the old Pine Knob music theater. The padded pavilion seats, usher services, food/beverage options, and restroom access is on par or better than similar venues. There's plenty of room for improving the parking process and after-event egress, however....More

The concert will probably be canceled now due to a members death in that band. If you already bought tickets they will refund them.
