Recently, I posted the question on Facebook and X: What’s the next concert on your schedule? You guys gave me all sorts of great answers, and ideas for some shows I should go see.

This is always a weird time for shows in a city like Detroit. It seems like more shows come through town in the summer, and that’s okay with me. That being said, you can’t stay cooped up all winter, so getting out to some of these shows is somewhat therapeutic. We have some great indoor venues like the new District 142 in Wyandotte, Saint Andrews Hall, The Machine Shop, The Token Lounge, Motor City Casino Soundboard, Little Caesars Arena, and many more. Get out to a show and check out some of these local places.

Last year was a banner year for me as far as concerts go. The two Metallica shows at Ford Field are going to be hard, if not impossible to top. They are the kings of it all and do it right! Avenged Sevenfold, Ghost, and Shinedown are a few that stick out right away from the shows I saw at Pine Knob along with Riff Fest. Those shows rocked!

Here we go. Keep in mind, that these are only shows at the beginning of the year. Some are here, some are a road trip away. During the summer, I’m looking forward to the Creed-3 Doors Down tour, along with that Limp Bizkit show. It’s been forever since I’ve seen the Bizkit in concert. Oh, and I would include the Pantera show in Grand Rapids on February 20th, but it’s a weekday and I have to work. Tough to make the road trek to Grand Rapids after my show ends at 7 pm.

I hope I see you guys at some of these concerts. And now, on with the show!


  • Zakk Sabbath - Saint Andrews Hall January 10

    I’ll take some of the guitar mastery of Zakk Wylde any chance I can. I’ve seen this show before at the Machine Shop and I can say this for sure, Zakk and the guys kill it!

  • Mammoth WVH/Nita Strauss - Saint Andrews Hall February 28

    Unfortunately, I’m going to miss this one as I’ll be out of town. But if you’re looking to see some killer musicians, this one is for you!

  • Mr. Big - Royal Oak Music Theater February 20

    Ok, this one may have caught you off guard. Truth be told, I’ve never seen them before. I sorta know Billy Sheehan, who’s a monster bass player, and Eric Martin is such a nice guy.

  • John 5 - Machine Shop February 9

    John is such a good dude, and KILLER player! I never miss him when he comes through town.

  • Tesla - Motor City Soundboard March 6

    There are many reasons I want to see this show. I really dig Tesla. It’s a great venue to see a show. And, it’s my birthday week!

  • Avenged Sevenfold

    This one is tricky for me. They play on the 9th of March in Cleveland, and the 11th in Grand Rapids. The GR show is on a Monday so that might not work. A road trip to Cleveland might be in order for my birthday week.

  • Hinder - district 142 january 30

    This show is just about sold out. Get your tickets and I’ll see you there.
