After nearly 30 years, the Palace of Auburn Hills has announced that it will soon close its doors for good. Palace officials this week announced that Bob Seger's September 23rd concert will be the venue's final event. This Week in Review, Weekend Edition host Rebecca Kruth and senior news analyst Jack Lessenberry talk about how businesses and the city of Auburn Hills itself will fare without revenue from the former home of the Detroit Pistons.

Another Detroit-area arena will close once the new Little Caesars Arena opens in September.

Palace Sports & Entertainment (PS&E) announced Thursday that a sold-out performance by Bob Seger and the Silver Bullets on September 23 will be the Palace’s final show.

It has been known since November that the Pistons will be joining the Detroit Red Wings at the Little Caesars Arena, and Thursday’s announcement comes after months of speculation about the future of the now former-home of the Detroit Pistons.
