Although summer is almost over, there still are plenty of great events happening at venues in Detroit over the next four weeks, ranging from concerts to plays to comedy acts and…bird calling demonstrations?
That’s right, bird calling demonstrations. The Robertson family, those reality television stars known for their show Duck Dynasty on A&E, will feature duck call demonstrations, hunting tips and Robertson family history. Willie, Jase and Si will be at the Sound Board at MotorCity Casino Hotel on September 22. The show starts at 3 p.m. and is sold out but a few tickets are still available online.
Long before Duck Dynasty ever existed, people were (and still are) entertained by theater. Broadway in Detroit will feature “Miss Saigon” at the Fisher Theatre on September 24 through October 6 for a total of 16 performances. Show dates and times are Tuesdays through Saturdays at 8p.m, Sunday evenings at 7:30 p.m, and Saturday/Sunday matinees at 2 p.m. The creators of “Les Misérables” wrote this love story set in the time of the Vietnam War. “Miss Saigon” is known for being a musical masterpiece with a breathtaking score.
As Motown, Detroit is known for a few breathtaking scores as well and is home to a great deal of concert venues that attract people from all over. Coming soon:
- Blue October will be at Saint Andrews Hall on September 20, at 7 p.m.
- Mos Def will be at the Detroit Opera House on September 20, at 8 p.m.
- J Cole will be at the Detroit Masonic Temple on October 10, at 8 p.m.
- Avenged Sevenfold will be at Joe Louis Arena on October 13 at 7 p.m. and will feature artists Deftones and Ghost BC.
Detroit has a reputation for showcasing great comedy as well as concerts. Comedian Dane Cook will be at the Fox Theatre on September 21 at 8 p.m. Cook is not only one of today’s most creative stand-up comedians, he’s also made his mark as a skilled actor in an array of movie and television roles.
