Detroit concertgoers have been waiting in anticipation for the all-star lineup of The Serenity of Summer Tour to hit the stage at DTE Energy Music Theatre which hit a home run and provided music lovers of all genres a dose of sunshine. Setting up headline acts with a pumped-up crowd, up and coming Metalheads, DED, enamored the rowdy troops while playing tracks from their recent release, ‘Mis-An-Thorpe’, which flowed right into bold Alabama songwriter, Yelawolf, rhyming straight from his heart and dishing out a lyrical pot of gold.
Lyrically bearing open their wounds and standing tall in their vulnerabilities have been the name of the game for the Memphis rockers, Skillet, that have unleashed their demons within to produce ten studio albums that have stood the test of time and served to create lifelong memories for fans worldwide. Between explosives vocals and pure musical ingenuity, the Christian Rockers carry themselves on stage in a charismatic and quintessential manner that is a privilege to observe. The surge of passion flowing within the veins of the musical masterminds is felt throughout an electric stage presence and fiery conviction that is magnetic.

Korey’s electric guitar-playing reverberates throughout your entire body and keeps the liveliness skyrocketing through the crowd as Jen balances vocals and drumming like a champ and Seth doesn’t skip a beat on guitar.
