The Block

Updated January 2021


Dear Block subscribers and ticketholders:

I’m sure you miss attending live concerts at The Block as much as we do!  Unfortunately, The Block remains closed in compliance with Michigan Department of Health and Human Services Epidemic Orders. However, we continue to work to reschedule concerts and create virtual content for you. On this website you will find the latest updated calendar of performances.

Early in 2021 we announced an updated schedule with a hiatus of concerts until late April.  Our guest artists were all able to provide us with options on new dates in the spring, with the exception of Benny Green who has postponed his appearance until next season.  We are hopeful that sometime this spring we will be able to reopen The Block to smaller, physically-distanced audiences. Regardless, we will offer most or all of our remaining programs as Virtual Concerts for those who prefer that option.  We will keep you apprised of any further changes or updates well in advance.

You have been amazingly patient and understanding, and we are grateful for your support. In just seven years The Block has become a vibrant gathering space for uncommon live music and a vital part of the downtown’s resurgence. With your continued support, we will do everything we can to preserve that legacy.
