With its liquid fireworks display, a carousel and a ferris wheel, and a 70-foot long bar for the adults in the house, Comerica Park does some heavy lifting in the overall facelift of Detroit’s downtown.
Detroit's Comerica Park has been in use since April of 2000, when it opened and officially replaced the old Tigers Stadium. The first game was played at Comerica Park on April 11, 2000, with nearly 40,000 fans in attendance. Comerica Park is part of a larger downtown-revitalization project for Detroit, which also included the construction of Ford Field. Popular with baseball fans everywhere, seating 41,703, the field differs from the old Tigers Stadium in that it is more spacious, open, and pitcher friendly. The old Tigers Stadium had smaller dimensions for hitters to take advantage of. Don't miss out on seeing this picturesque stadium with Detroit Tigers tickets.
The entrance to Comerica Park is one of the most scenic in the United States, situated opposite two historic downtown churches, the Central United Methodist Church and St. John Episcopal Church, and the Fox Theatre. Also right outside of the stadium is a 15-foot tall statue of a tiger.
Several concerts have been hosted at Comerica Park over the years, including shows by Detroit-native Eminem, The Rolling Stones, Bruce Springsteen, Bon Jovi, Paul McCartney, Dave Matthews Band, Alice in Chains, Cypress Hill, and a co-headlined show with Eminem and Jay-Z, among many other shows. Comerica Park is one of the only outdoor concert venues in the city of Detroit. Additionally, the park hosted the NHL Winter Classic in December 2013.
