The J. Geils Band returns to its second home, Detroit, bringing its Houseparty Tour 2015 to DTE Energy Music Theatre Sept. 11.

The high-energy Boston group led by Peter Wolf was last at DTE in August 2011. The band played many dates on Bob Seger’s last tour but not in Detroit.

The group has had a boisterous love affair with Detroit fans since the early ‘70s, when they recorded the first of several live albums here at the Cinderella Ballroom.

Tickets range from $39.50-$99.50, and go on sale June 5 at Livenation.com, Palacenet.com, the Palace and DTE ticket stores and all Ticketmaster locations.
