Pine Knob is back as storied Michigan venue changes name again


The wishes of metro area music fans and international performers are going to be realized this summer.

They’ll be going to the Pine Knob Music Theatre once again.

The venerable amphitheater, one of the country’s oldest and most successful, changed its name to the DTE Energy Music Theatre in 2000 amidst considerable furor — and artists who continued to refer to it as Pine Knob during the next 20 years. Now 313 Presents, which promotes and produces events at the 15,000-seat theater, is reinstalling the Pine Knob name, with a new logo and United Wholesale Mortgage (UWM) and Trinity Health joining as primary sponsors.

“Congratulations, Detroit! I am really happy Pine Knob’s true identity has finally been returned,” says Peter Frampton, who recorded his 2000 “Live in Detroit” album and DVD at the venue. “It’s always been Pine Knob to me. I always call it that from the stage.” “It’s always been Pine Knob to me,” adds James Pankow of Chicago, whose 81 shows are the most by any act at the venue. “It’s tradition.”
