DETROIT, June 3, 2024 — The pulse of Detroit beats stronger than ever as Michigan Central today unveils an electrifying lineup of Detroit icons, performers and presenters for “Live From Detroit: The Concert at Michigan Central,” an outdoor spectacular on Thursday, June 6. A moment more than 35 years in the making, stars will take to the stage to celebrate the highly anticipated reopening of Michigan Central Station following a six-year restoration by Ford Motor Company.

NBC will air a one-hour primetime special on June 9 starting at 7 p.m. ET/PT.

“We wanted to celebrate the reopening of Michigan Central Station in style and make it a night to remember for Detroiters and people watching around the world,” said Bill Ford, executive chair of Ford. “I am honored and grateful that so many of Detroit’s musical legends, sports heroes, artists and innovators are joining us to celebrate the city we all love and the bright future we are creating together.”

Detroit is known around the world for its musical talent, and having so many legendary artists kick off the celebration for the reopening of the iconic Michigan Central Station shows how meaningful this moment is for our city.

“This historic landmark symbolizes Detroit’s resilience, innovation, and now, its bright future. This is about more than preserving a piece of our past. It also is about paving the way for a new era of growth and opportunity for all Detroiters,” said Mayor Mike Duggan.

The special concert is executive produced by Detroit music icon Eminem and his longtime manager, Paul Rosenberg.

The sold-out, ticketed 90-minute outdoor concert will bring to life the spirit and soul of Detroit through an incredible lineup of musical performances, short films, appearances by local leaders, and creators telling stories of innovation and culture from around the city and the region. The star-studded program features iconic musicians and cultural legends, including Michigan natives Diana Ross, Big Sean, Illa J, Jack White, Kierra Sheard, Theo Parrish, Slum Village, the Clark Sisters, Sky Jetta and the Detroit Symphony Orchestra. They will be joined by presenters including Detroit Lions legend Barry Sanders and stars Jared Goff and Amon-Ra St. Brown.

“At NBCUniversal, we deliver the most engaging stories to audiences across the globe wherever, whenever and however they choose to connect.

It’s incredibly exciting to bring this first-of-its-kind celebration to our platforms with Ford and Michigan Central Station to friends and families across the country.”

Michigan Central Station

The revitalized Michigan Central Station is a reminder of Detroit’s shared history and how it endures as a symbol of Detroit as a destination for opportunity.

When it first opened in 1913, The Station was not only one of the grandest train depots in the United States, but the tallest in the world. However, as preferences and technology changed in regard to travel, The Station closed in 1988 and remained vacant until Ford’s acquisition of the property in 2018. Since then, more than 3,100 skilled workers have dedicated more than 1.7 million combined hours to meticulously restore The Station to its original architectural grandeur, while also retrofitting it with modern technological infrastructure to support its next chapter.

Over time, The Station will become a vibrant public destination for Detroiters and all who visit the region, and serve as the centerpiece of the Michigan Central technology and cultural hub located at the gateway between the historic Corktown and Southwest Detroit neighborhoods. With 640,000 square feet of future retail, hospitality, event and collaborative innovation spaces, The Station will support the 30-acre Michigan Central innovation ecosystem by accommodating larger tenants and established companies, attracting and retaining technology talent and drawing in diverse businesses. The landmark will also be a stop on Detroit’s greenway plan, uniting dozens of local neighborhoods across the city to create a more connected Detroit. 

After the 11-day reopening celebration wraps up on June 16, Michigan Central will begin a phased reactivation of The Station over the next several months and years as restaurant, retail, and other commercial and community-focused partners take up residency. The first floor will be open to visitors for self-guided tours from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. Fridays and 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturdays from June 21 to Aug. 31. Expanded hours will be announced for fall, when the first phase of commercial activations opens to the public.
