The Palace will be shutting down after the Detroit Pistons’ decision to move to downtown Detroit and play in the new Little Caesars Arena. The announcement says that “no decisions or timetable regarding future plans for the building or the preperty have been made at this time. Given the value and highly desirable location of the property, it is expect that a nubmer of ptions will be available.”
The Seger show -- the Michigan rock hero’s 17th at the Palace -- is one of two events remaining on the arena’s schedule. Country copule Tim McGraw and Faith Hill will play a Soul2Soul show there on Sept. 8. Limited tickets are still available for both of the concerts via palacenet.com.
