If you're in Hockeytown, you have to see a Redwings game here. Even if you're not a fan of Hockey, this temple of the Redwings is impressive.

This is an older arena. It is about to be replaced by a new building. It is a great place to attend a concert or watch a hockey game. The only drawback is the steps to reach the arena. They can wear you out.

Every trip to the Joe is a good trip! Pay the $20 and park in the parking structure and take the tunnel over to the arena. Arrive early to get a decent spot in the parking, get in line and find your seats.

I took my mom to go see R. Kelly perform and it was one of the greatest shows I've been too. Joe Louis does not have the best seats but to get my tickets off of groupon for the price I got them for, it was well worth it. I enjoyed every bit of the show. Concession stand prices for... More

Home of the Red Wings ....... This coming season 2016-17 will be there last at "The Joe". Will be going to a few games. Won't miss it for the world. If you like hockey and are in the Detroit area .....check their schedule. You won't be disappointed.
