The Palace of Auburn Hills has been the home of Detroit Pistons Basketball for years now. We have visited several games throughout the years. It's a very nice facility that sits right on a hill in Auburn Hills, Michigan. You can see it afar off...More

Although the Pistons have moved back downtown, Palace still a solid venue for concerts, etc. Luxury boxes small, but still comfy. Good acoustics. Plenty of good parking. It’s no Little Caesar’s Arena, but it’s still usable.

This venue was closed when the new Little Caesar's Arena was built in downtown Detroit. The Piston's and all concerts normally held at the Palace will now be played in the new arena.

Too bad the palace is having its final concerts this fall it's a wonderful venue to see a concert or Pistons game we've taken the kids there many times for circuses and Disney on Ice

So not only do you pay astronomical prices to see a concert, which is the artist's fault, but you also get charged for parking. On the website it says it's $15 but when you get there and have no where else to go your charged...More

I'm a fan of the Palace. I've been to many events there over the years, from basketball games to Disney On Ice. I'm so sad that they decided to close the whole venue since the Pistons are moving. It would still make a fantastic concert/event...More

Getting in and out of this building is the worst part. The traffic jams are crazy give yourself some time. The sound for a concert is ok however there was dried puke all over the seats that had been there from previous events.

Saw Bruno Mars here with a group of friends. The acoustics in this place are awesome, and there really doesn't seem to be a bad seat in the house! My only issue with this spot is the enormous and overwhelming traffic jam in and out...More
