The H.O.R.D.E. Festival coming to DTE in July
The H.O.R.D.E. Festival, Blues Traveler's '90s roots-rock festival, is getting a one-off revival July 9 at DTE Energy Music Theatre, venue officials announced Friday.
Tickets for the show, which will feature Blues Traveler, 311 and Big Head Todd and the Monsters, go on sale at 10 a.m. May 1 and range from $69.50, $49.50 and $25 pavilion to $20 for lawn.
H.O.R.D.E., short for Horizons of Rock Developing Everywhere, was a traveling roots rock and jam band festival in the ’90s that crisscrossed North America along with touring fests like Lilith Fair and Lollapalooza. Bands that played H.O.R.D.E. included Phish, Widespread Panic, Neil Young & Crazy Horse, Lenny Kravitz, the Spin Doctors and other like-minded artists, and though the festival folded in 1998, rumors of its revival have always followed Blues Traveler.
The veteran rockers' latest album, “Blow Up the Moon,” was released earlier this month.
