Michigan Central Live Event Features Diana Ross, Jack White

Michigan Central Station is getting a second chance courtesy of The Blue Oval, and it’s set to officially debut this week with a sold-out concert to welcome in the new chapter of the historic building’s history. It’s no wonder that tickets were sold out in short order, considering the big names that will perform at the event, including Diana Ross and Jack White.

Officially called “Live From Detroit: The Concert at Michigan Central,” the musical performance will take place outdoors in front of the revived station on June 6th, 2024. The event is executive-produced by Eminem and Paul Rosenberg, and will feature a star-studded lineup of local Detroit artists including Diana Ross, Big Sean, Illa J, Jack White, Kierra Sheard, Theo Parrish, Slum Village, the Clark Sisters, Sky Jetta and the Detroit Symphony Orchestra. Other special guests will also take to the stage to celebrate the revamped facility’s opening.

The event can be experienced in person for enthusiasts who were lucky enough to get a ticket to the live event, but for people who missed out on the limited ticket sales, it will also be streamed on Peacock beginning at 8:30 p.m. ET, and will also stream locally via Local 4+ and NBC will also run a one-hour special on June 9th 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 FoMoCo. “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.”

As for Ford’s intentions for Michigan Central, The Blue Oval plans to install Ford Model e and Ford Integrated Services teams across three floors in Michigan Central Station by 2025. By the end of 2024, the company expects to have 1,000 employees working at the station and envisions 2,500 working there by 2028. Ford isn’t the only company that plans to have a presence at Michigan Central Station, and it expects the 640,000 square-foot campus to be more than an office complex too, complete with cultural events and services for the surrounding community.
