Pine Knob is back.
After being changed to the sterile corporate branding of DTE Energy Music Theatre in 2001, the old name used for 29 years before the switch is returning to the Clarkston amphitheater.
"313 Presents is excited to announce that DTE Energy Music Theatre -- the nation’s top amphitheatre in 2019 -- located in Clarkston, Michigan, is going back to its roots with the venue’s original name and will now be known again as Pine Knob Music Theatre," a press release says.
"The renaming couldn’t come at a better time as the 2022 summer concert season will mark the renowned venue’s 50th anniversary."
To commemorate the return Pine Knob posted a video (below) showing the history of the venue.
