Concert season returns to SE Michigan: 9 shows coming in 2021

Remember concerts? That thing you’d drive to and listen to live music from your favorite musicians, and then get stuck in horrible traffic jams because you stayed for the encore?

Those are back.

COVID-19 restrictions are easing in Michigan, and with all capacity limits set to be lifted on July 1, the concert season is back in business, and tours are planned.

If you had tickets to these shows previously, those tickets are still valid for most shows. So, don’t buy new tickets before checking.
