Thursday’s concert will kick off celebrations to reopen Detroit’s historic train station, which has been closed since 1988. Ford Motor Company purchased the station in 2018 and has been renovating it since then.

Michigan Central will now serve as a “unique technology and cultural center” on Ford’s new automotive campus in Corktown. The station will feature retail and restaurant space, offices, accommodations and more.

The building’s grand opening is scheduled for June 6, and the concert is intended to kick off the festivities. Following the concert, Michigan Central Station’s OPEN House will be held June 7-16, offering a first look at the station’s ground floor through exhibits, entertainment, art and more, officials said.

Tours of the station’s ground floor will be offered throughout the summer, with additional tours expected in the fall. The first round of tours, from June 7 to 16, is already fully booked. Registration is required to participate.

Following the reopening events in June, a “gradual reactivation” of the station building is to begin over the rest of the year, as other businesses such as restaurants and retailers move into the premises.
