When the Bob Seger & The Silver Bullet Band announced their show at The Palace of Auburn Hills on Saturday, September 23rd, they touted it as 'their final show' at The Palace. We weren't sure if that was going to be Seger's final show ever, his final arena show or what...very ambiguous.
We learned yesterday that it will be the final event ever at The Palace of Auburn Hills, where many of us have made memories while attending concerts, basketball games, WWF, UFC, boxing - maybe even Disney on Ice.
The Palace opened on August 13, 1988 with a sold-out show featuring Sting and for 29 years hosted major events and was home to the Detroit Pistons. There has been a lot of speculation that the venue might close after the Pistons made their move to the new Little Caesars Arena in downtown Detroit and official word came yesterday.
You can get more of the details here from the Detroit Free Press about what the future might hold for the Auburn Hills property.
