The first show by the band in this city since August 2008 on the main Songs From The Sparkle Lounge tour.

The first time at this venue.

The venue is located in the downtown area of the city very close to the Comerica Park baseball stadium and Ford Field NFL stadium plus the Little Caesars Arena.

It was opened in 1928 and reopened after renovation in November 1988.

An appearance at the NHL Face-Off Rocks concert to celebrate the opening of the NHL (National Hockey League) 2008-09 season.

The performance of "C'mon C'mon" was broadcast live before the Detroit Red Wings vs Toronto Maple Leafs game.

This show was webcast live on NHL.com as well as on TV after the game.

At the Aug 23rd show at the Joe Louis Arena Joe wore a Red Wings jersey during the encore.

Alanis Morissette's performance of 'Versions Of Violence' was beamed in from her show in Montreal.

Joe caused some controversy among NHL fans by placing the cup upside down during PSSOM.

Recordings exists from the webcast in both audio and video format.
