Without romance as inspiration, The Beatles would have been forced to write hits such as “All You Need is Schadenfreude.” Feel the power of love with this GrouponLive deal for one G-Pass to see Huey Lewis & The News and Joe Cocker at DTE Energy Music Theatre in Clarkston. For $13, you get one ticket for general-admission lawn seating on Thursday, August 9, at 7:30 p.m. (up to a $25.45 value, including all fees). Because the ticket is a G-Pass, Groupon customers can use it to enter the venue directly; they will not need to redeem their Groupon at will call.
Two of music’s most legendary acts give fans a one-two punch of rock and soul as the true grit of Joe Cocker meets the winsome bar-band blues of Huey Lewis & The News. Although John Belushi gave it his best shot, Joe Cocker's untamed tonsils and fearless flailing are inimitable, allowing the gravelly singer to famously transform tender tunes, such as “With a Little Help from My Friends” and “You Are So Beautiful,” into histrionic, heartfelt epics sung with the passion of a man eating his way out of a limestone quarry. Voted one of Rolling Stone’s 100 Greatest Singers of All Time, Joe lets his golden throat exfoliate ears as he belts out his seminal hits, along with tracks from his latest album, Hard Knocks.
Since the early 1980s, Huey Lewis & The News’ blend of blue-eyed soul and pure pop savvy has been staking its claim in the hearts of millions of music fans. Nineteen Top 10 singles––each custom built for convertible cruises, courting a loved one, or enabling Marty McFly’s existence––endlessly populate summer’s mixtape to itself. With his backup band The News laying down seamless rhythms, lead singer Huey Lewis charms audiences out of their seats with his earnest tenor and ace harmonica skills. From the grassy DTE Energy Music Theatre lawn, fans can get ready to yell when Huey name-checks “Detroit!” in “The Heart of Rock and Roll” and expect other hits such as “I Want a New Drug,” played with zest as he dodges paper-plane marriage proposals hurled by lovelorn fans.
Due to security restrictions, G-Passes must be printed out and presented in person at the event. They cannot be redeemed through Groupon's mobile app.
