Summer Concerts- Gear Up For Summer Season

Shane Sellers, Report

Nobody knows how to take advantage of those precious summer months from May to August quite like summer-starved Michiganders. Whether it be The Aretha Franklin Amphitheater, DTE Energy Music Theatre, Little Caesars Arena, Meadow Brook Amphitheatre, or Michigan Lottery Amphitheatre at Freedom Hill, concert-goers are going to have their fill of events this summer.
The 2019 concert season is set to get under way in full stride in coming weeks, as shows and festivals begin popping up all over the Detroit region. This summer; however, there will be no concerts held at Ford Field or Comerica Park as in years past. But, don’t worry, that doesn’t mean there still won’t be big-name acts.
