The DTE Energy Music Theatre has been the pride of Clarkston, Michigan since it opened to the public in the early-1970s. It was an era in which times were a bit more simple and music was a lot more streamlined.
Long before the days of the Internet – or even compact discs – fans purchased records and spun them around hundreds of times before waiting for their favorite artists to announce that they would be coming to a venue near them. For the DTE Energy Music Theatre, their large and attractive venue serves as a powerful lure for chart-topping artists from all genres.
The remainder of the 1970s and all of the 1980s were a magical time where the greats of the business took to the stage and rocked Michigan fans. Like many great amphitheaters, DTE has a large covered section and a large grassy section. Tickets are typically cheaper out on the grass, but timing is everything when it comes to purchasing and downloading tickets in the modern era.
Because of the extreme weather in Michigan during the winter, the venue is closed to the public for a handful of months per year. Eddie Money developed a ritual of opening the spring season and did so for more than 20 years in a row between 1989 and 2004.
Rockers Chicago hold the record number of appearances, having taken the stage at DTE Energy Music Theater exactly 70 times as of press time. DTE also has the distinction of being the most visited amphitheater in all of America in different years, and Billboard took the time to award the DTE Energy Music Center with an official title in recent years.
The future is bright for the place that was remodeled in 2012 to enhance the modern sound capabilities and implement a state-of-the-art sound system that is permanently suspended above the stage, as opposed to speakers stationed in various areas on the surface of the stage. For all fans interested in witnessing a concert at the DTE Energy Music Center, tickets are only a few clicks away.
