Pine Knob was officially back last year and the momentum of offering the best show of summer isn't slowing down for 2023. Already the schedule is showing signs that there's a summer of incredible music heading our way.

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.

Riding high on being ranked the "#1 Amphitheatre in the World" by Pollstar, Pine Knob has already released a growing schedule of shows that has something for everyone. Since it's grand opening on June 25, 1972, with a matinee performance by teen idol David Cassidy, the venue has continually brought the best artist in the world to the stage in Clarkston, Michigan. With a seating capacity of around 15,000, Pine Knob has become "the" place for music under the stars.
