Pine Knob is Back: This is the Complete ’22 Concert Lineup So Far
Celebrating its 50th year by taking back its iconic name, Pine Knob has a diverse lineup of summer shows already on the concert calendar for 2022.
It was 1972 when a ski resort just north of Detroit in Clarkston, Michigan opened in June. Technically, Pine Knob Music Theater isn't the same as the ski area, but its concert stage is at the base of the hill (this is Michigan, there are no mountains) that shares its name. The geography provides a natural amphitheater, and seeing a summer concert from the lawn has become a Michigan summer tradition.
Even though DTE Energy took over the naming rights in 2001, many concert-goers still called it Pine Knob. Now, the legendary name is officially back and the concert industry is back in business in 2022. Here are the shows scheduled for Pine Knob's 50th anniversary season so far.
