Get ready for one hell of a summer in Michigan with a concert lineup that has literally something for everyone.

Ever since the word broke that DTE Energy Music Theatre was dropping the corporate tag and returning to its roots as Pine Knob, concert-goers have had that energy back that makes summer concerts in Michigan so amazing. For many of us it was ALWAYS Pine Knob, but the official name change back just seemed to make everyone feel like this summer all will be right with the world.

What's On Tap for Pine Knob This Summer?

Even before the return of the name Pine Knob, the music theatre venue in Clarkston, Michigan was already announcing a pretty impressive line-up. Just before Christmas, there was already a pretty hefty list of shows announced. REO, Styx, Barenaked Ladies, Chicago, Matchbox Twenty, and Keith Urban were already on the schedule, and since then the list has grown to add a wide variety of genres for everyone's taste.
