Closing out the Chevy Rockin’ on the Riverfront concert series this year, classic rock fans can be sure that the party of the summer is yet to come.
Randy Bachman and Fred Turner are out to prove 20 years after they formed one of the rock’s legendary bands, they have something new to say. Back as a duo and still Rollin’ Along, they are reunited. They’ve been Takin’ Care of Business since 1971 and while that business may have changed, the songs endure. Sing along to hits like You Ain’t Seen Nothin’ Yet and Let it Ride. It’s time to celebrate and this is just the band you want to party with, as the concert series draws to a close.
Bachman-Turner marks the final show of the 2011 Chevy Rockin’ on the Riverfront concert series in 2011, which has been presented in partnership with Detroit’s Classic Rock Station 94.7 WCSX-FM.
Opener The Eddie Leighton Project is set to go on at 7:30 p.m. while Bachman-Turner takes the stage at 9 p.m.
As always, admission is free and no advance tickets are necessary. Viewing space will be on a first-come, first-served basis and people are encouraged to bring their own lawn chairs and blankets. In addition, boaters on the Detroit River are invited to anchor near the riverfront and enjoy the view of the stage from the water.
Andiamo Detroit Riverfront will provide refreshment and food concessions at several locations on the plaza. Outside food, beverages or coolers will not be permitted. Convenient parking is available for $5 per vehicle at the GM surface lot at the intersection of St. Antoine and Atwater, adjacent to the GM Renaissance Center.
