DTE Energy Music Theatre

DTE Energy Music Theatre - ranked among the top amphitheaters in the world - is located in Clarkston, Michigan.

Originally known as Pine Knob Music Theatre due to its proximity to the nearby Pine Knob ski area and golf course when it opened in June 1972, the amphitheater became DTE Energy Music Theatre in 2002 when DTE Energy purchased the naming rights to the amphitheater. Detroit Pistons owner Tom Gores purchased Palace Sports & Entertainment and its assets in 2011, which included DTE Energy Music Theatre.

Known as one of metro Detroit’s favorite summer destinations, DTE Energy Music Theatre is the preferred venue for many of the nation’s top touring acts as it plays host to world-class entertainment events, concerts, comedy, family shows and community functions. The venue’s summer concert season typically begins in May and concludes each September or October.

DTE Royal members (premium season ticket holders) have exclusive access to The Ivy Lounge before, during and after each DTE Energy Music Theatre show. Enjoy dinner and drinks featuring specialty cocktails and a selected wine list prior to the show and a post-show menu that includes pizza, chicken wings, nachos and sandwiches. A private bar, post-show parties, music, dancing and private restrooms are among the many advantages enjoyed by Royal members in The Ivy Lounge.
