(CelebrityAccess MediaWire) The Palace Sports and Entertainment (PS&E) concerts at its DTE Energy Music Theatre and Meadow Brook Music Festival offer a "Buy Three, Get Three Free" pick-your-own plan Summer Series schedule of more than 80 shows. It allows patrons to create their own ticket package by purchasing any three shows from the series schedule and receiving free lawn tickets to three select "bonus" concerts of their choice.
Merging line-ups from the two top Detroit area amphitheatres allows series purchasers the optimum choice of concerts, including rock, alternative, adult contemporary, pop, country, the Detroit Symphony Orchestra, rhythm &blues and family entertainment. It will also allow series ticket-holders the opportunity to enjoy the ambiance of both venues.
"For years, area concert-goers have welcomed the Summer Concert Series announcement as a first sign of summer. We feel proud to be able to offer a wide variety of events to appeal to our guests' many tastes while providing them a means to increase the value of the series through the bonus shows," said Tom Wilson, president and CEO of Palace Sports and Entertainment. "In doing so, we hope to allow as many people as possible to take pleasure in a wonderful night under the stars, or a sunny day on the lawn, as they enjoy their favorite artists while having the best experience possible."
For the first time, Meadow Brook Music Festival events will have the traffic control fee included in the ticket price, a procedure which will ease traffic ingress as concert-goers will not have to stop to pay for parking when entering the grounds. DTE Energy Music Theatre began utilizing this practice in 2001. –Jane Cohen and Bob Grossweiner
