  • Location / Charlevoix, MI, USA
  • Venue / Castle Farms Music Theatre

The first show by the band in this city.

The first time at this venue.

The venue is located 3.5 Miles to the South East of the city centre and close to Loeb Bay which is within Lake Charlevoix.

The building which housed concerts within the grounds was opened in 1917.

Concerts took place on a lawn area in front of the building with the stage positioned with the towers either side.

It hosted major concerts from 1977 to 1996.

On concert tickets it was often listed as "The Castle - Charlevoix" and in the early 80s it was listed as "Castle Farms Music Theatre".

Since the ending of concerts the building and grounds are used for weddings.

This show was rescheduled from the 18th June due to Joe's throat problems.
