    Love this venue! Forever Pine knob! Check out the bar/eatery behind the hill for some great Mac and cheese and draft beer selections! Usually a spot to sit down, relax and enjoy some grub.

    This was one of my favorite venues on my Get Sleazy tour. Kickass place to play on a warm summer night- the venue is halfway inside and halfway outside. Alice Cooper played the night after I left!

    If you want to get some turns in before a trip out west and you live in southeast MI...go here. It rocks and the terrain parks rule. And you have access to some of the best instructors in the biz...

    You're not too far from the iconic Rudy's Market. Check them out as they carry lots of Made in Michigan products, great pizza, beer, & wine selection.

    Great venue, but eat before the show! Also drinks are crazy expensive ($8 just for a soda), but can't bring your own so stick to the bottled water.

    I remember back in the day it was known as Pine Knob. Not a ton has changed, especially the dirty bathrooms, but it's the best venue around for a rock concert.

    Be forewarned, smoking is permitted in the lawn seating area!

    Great sound quality. The lawn can get a bit rowdy. A few bruises are good for you anyway.

    Ozzy & Sabbath were great! Tony Iommi, Geezer Butler & their young drummer were fabulous! My ears were ringing for hours after the concert! :-D

    The sound is not perfect and this is the kind of venue that does not help gigs to gain energy (despite the venue's name :) )

    Best place to see a concert in metro Detroit hands down(lawn or pavilion)!!!
  • Danielle B.
    Pavillion seats are always worth the extra money (instead of buying lawn tickets!)

    Amazing time tonight.. next time we will spend the extra for the seats but we still had a great time and Tim put on a amazing show

    If the concert you're at isn't that great, leave during the encore and save an hour of extra travel time home.

    With a handicap sticker, parking is convenient.

    You can't even bring sunblock through the gates. Ridiculous, especially with the hot sun baking you.

    Spend a little more and sit under the pavilion. Stay off the lawn.

    Bring ear plugs for your own safety. Lynard Skynard was so over amped that their sound was distorted. It took three days before my hearing returned to normal.

    Great venue, horrible traffic. Take a side entrance in, ruin your night trying to get out - 2 hours to get out after Jimmy Buffett concert!

    So many drunk teenagers... people under 21 need to learn the concept of a designated driver & expect to have beer dumped on you
