My Favorite Concert Venue

This is my favorite place to go and see concerts during the summer. This is the only venue that everyone seems to just really relax and enjoy the company of strangers.

My first experience here was for Jimmy Buffet on my birthday and it was amazing. Tons of parking for all day tailgating. We bought pavilion seats but I could tell the lawn seats were just as good. The only downside of the venue is it's location. There is nothing in Auburn Hills. I also wish it was still called Pine... More

This is one of the best spots to catch a summer concert in Michigan. This is a beautiful theater and the acoustics of the the theater are great. It doesn't matter where you sit, it is going to sound great.

DTE (Pine Knob) is an excellent outdoor concert venue. Whether you sit in the pavilion or on the lawn, you are guaranteed to have a great time! Many artists comment on the energy they get from the Detroit crowds, especially at Pine Knob!! I always feel safe there, as they have a lot of security and Oakland country officers on... More
