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 15,040-seat amphitheater (6,189 seats in Bud Light Pavilion; 8,851 on the United Shore Lawn) became DTE Energy Music Theatre in 2002 when DTE Energy purchased the naming rights to the amphitheater.

DTE Energy Music Theatre is a preferred venue for many of the nation's top touring acts. Named the nation’s most attended amphitheater by Amusement Business/Billboard for 21 years, the venue’s season opens each Memorial Day weekend with classic rocker Eddie Money — a perennial favorite as the venue’s traditional opener since 1992 — and concludes each September or October.

Recent improvements include a new lawn speaker system and LED lighting in the parking lot. The improved sound quality combined with the recent addition of video screens, camera technology, production facilities and state-of-the-art acoustic paneling, completely transform the way guests experience a concert at DTE. 

DTE Royal members (premium season ticket holders) have exclusive access to The Jeep 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 Jeep Ivy Lounge.

The Arbor, located closest to the VIP and East Entrances, is open to all DTE patrons and is the destination for post-show drinks and food.  Open an hour after the show ends, fans can keep the good times rolling with DJ entertainment and late night food favorites served alongside an assortment of beer choices and specialty cocktails.
