    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!

    I went to the Knob last year and had lawn seats, which gave my group the perfect view of the stage. I would recommend this venue to enjoy a night of great sounding music.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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...

    Some craft beer options and you can snack at the Woodshop. It is quite a trek from Detroit, though.

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

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

    Pavillion seats are always worth the extra money (instead of buying lawn tickets!)

    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.
