Lookin' Back & In the Flesh: Bob Seger & Pink Floyd Tributes
- So, which is which?: Lookin' Back pays tribute to the muscled heartland rock of Seger and his Silver Bullet Band, while In the Flesh summons the spirit of Pink Floyd
- Seger era of choice: the mid-'70s to early '80s, with a dash of earlier and later material
- Most ringing endorsement: in 2011, the band performed with original Silver Bullets Alto Reed and Charlie Martin
- Best argument for traveling in packs: Lookin' Back embraces the tribute band ethos, producing events such as Dueling Tributes, which paired them with a Rolling Stones tribute band, and a tribute triathlon that included acts inspired by Ted Nugent and Alice Cooper
- Speaking of concerts with other tribute bands: In the Flesh captures the Pink Floyd experience nine musicians, three technicians, and a light show that will turn your eyes into tiny lava lamps
- Their set: deep cuts mixed with more well-known Floyd songs, such as Dark Side of the Moon's "Breathe," "Time," and "Money"
Saint Andrew's Hall
When Saint Andrew's Hall first opened its doors in 1907, the most rock 'n' roll thing about it was the bunch of gentlemen in kilts. But what was once the meeting spot for the Saint Andrew's Scottish Society of Detroit has now become one of the city's hottest venues, having hosted everyone from Nirvana to Bob Dylan and Iggy Pop. Many of these bigger acts perform in the Main Ballroom, which sports a VIP balcony, hardwood dance floor, and a bar more than 129 pint glasses long (35 feet, in layman's terms). A second, more intimate performance space called The Shelter resides down below, making guests feel at home with deep red curtains and cabaret-style seating. The third and final area is the Burns Room, an upper-level lounge where patrons recline on cushy furniture while savoring views of the RenCen and the quarter notes floating up from downstairs.
