A legendary venue for the 30th Anniversary Show
The summer show will be on Saturday and Sunday, June 29th and 30th at the beautiful Emerald Theatre located in downtown Mt. Clemens 20 miles north of downtown Detroit at 31 North Walnut Street. This could be the new home for an annual eastside Michigan Guitar Show!!
For those that have attended our shows in the past, keep in mind that the Emerald Theatre is a MUCH larger venue with a full stage, 3 tiers, 2 balconies, and 3 bars. The place was built in 1920 – and it definitely has that “vintage vibe”!
This will be the guitar party of the decade that no one will forget!
A little history…
The Emerald Theatre first opened in 1921 as a grand movie palace and vaudeville live performance venue known as the Macomb Theatre. The 23,000-square-foot venue was designed by renowned theater architect, C. Howard Crane – also the creative mastermind behind Detroit’s Orchestra Hall and Fox Theatre.— [from their website theemeraldtheatre.com ]
Throughout the years, the theatre’s stage has been the platform for local rising-star performers, as well as some of the greats: Kid Rock, the Cult, Alice in Chains, Styx, Gerald Albright, Uncle Kracker, Vince Neil, Mike Posner, The Cult, The Psychedelic Furs, Motörhead, Pearl Jam, Michael Bolton, Joe Nichols, and Kenny G, to name a few.
Newly renovated in 2016, the Emerald Theatre, with a capacity of 1,620 on its main floor, balcony and mezzanine levels is one of the largest venues of its kind in metropolitan Detroit.
