Dubbed the “Detroit voice of the 1960s” by Rolling Stone, Mitch Ryder will zoom into the Meyer Theater this season and the Detroit Wheels with their signature high-octane, supercharged sound. Ryder “was a major influence on Bruce Springsteen and John Mellencamp,” according to Rolling Stone, and he and the Wheels served as a musical bridge between the Motown soul factory and the “take no-prisoners” rock ‘n’ roll world that would roar out of Detroit via the likes of Ted Nugent and Bob Seger.  Among their most memorable songs are the top 40 hits “Little Latin Lupe
Lu,” “Take a Ride” and “Devil with a Blue Dress On/Good Golly Miss Molly.”


*VIP Seating includes balcony seating, munchies and cash bar.

The MCCC Alumni Association Pre-Party Begins in the Atrium at 5:30 p.m. with Cash Bar and Munchies! 

Classic Albums Live returns to the Meyer Theater for a second time
this year with the ultimate album of 1977, Fleetwood Mac’s “Rumours.” Go back in time with this perfect recreation of an unforgettable, timeless album. Classic Albums Live takes classic albums and recreates them live on stage – note for note, cut for cut.

The very first track of “Rumours” lets you know that heartache awaits. The members of Fleetwood Mac were the first ones to genuinely sing about the emotion and turmoil that comes from losing love. It’s not easy to confront one’s vulnerabilities and credibly put them to song, but it was therapy for the band and connected with fans everywhere. Classic Albums Live has worked hard to reproduce the incredible vibe of this album.

*VIP Seating includes balcony seating, munchies and cash bar.
