*Updated April 7, 2024

Finally, Mother Nature is showing us that summer is on the horizon and our minds are already heating up for fun.  As always in Michigan, the thing on everyone's mind when it comes to summer, aside from some time on the lakes, is concerts. Once again Pine Knob Music Theatre is stacking the deck with a pretty impressive roster that increases by the day.

Michigan concert-goers have had that energy back that makes summer concerts in the Great Lakes state so amazing. For many of us, it was ALWAYS Pine Knob, but the official name change back just seemed to make everyone feel that last summer that everything was right with the world. It looks like the momentum that gave us one hell of an outdoor music season last year is going to continue for 2024.
