It's an amazing venue. Too bad the Pistons are done playing there after this season. My family enjoys the palace very much. Great seats and east to get in and out. I'll miss seeing games there.

Easy to enter the palace and parking was good. Camera policy was confusing as the website didn't specify for the pistons game and we couldn't bring it in as it had a removable lense. Overall a good experience.

The Palace is awesome for seeing big names like Panic! or Beyoncé, or watching your favorite team, they have great suites for groups and a variety of food. However, they nickel and dime the common man to death-almost literal death. It's $20 for parking, $4...More

Fantastic experience at the Palace for Detroit Pistons game. Parking was $15 and not a bad walk to entrance. Excellent court side seats for the win. Entertainment between game action is better than most places. Concession food was even good.

This is a good arena for a night out on the town to watch the Pistons play. The Arena is also a great venue for concerts.

We went to the Palace to watch the Pistons basketball. It's a great venue and always very clean. Staff that we encountered were friendly and helpful. Just wish they didn't charge $15 to park.

I am making the sacrifice to drive my soon to be 14 year old daughter to see "5 Seconds of Summer" from Findlay, OH to the Palace of Auburn Hills in a few days. Since this is going to be at least a 2 hour and 15 minute drive and the concert starts at 7:30, what time would you suggest that I leave? I was thinking about leaving around 3 p.m. to arrive by 5:30. Would that be a safe bet? I have the tickets on my phone, versus printing them. Does anyone know if that will be a problem?

Your trip should only take 2-1/2 hours unless it's a weekday and it's rush hour. If that is so plan on adding at least an hour for the heavy traffic on I-75 between Detroit and your exit 81 onto Lapeer Road/M-24 where there... More
I am going to the Iron Maiden concert here and I have tickets near the top of section 117 and I was wondering are those seats any good?

Section 117 is in the lower bowl corner . You will be facing the stage at a good angle to your slight right. There is enough pitch on the rise of the stadium seating to see well unless, of course, someone is standing in the... More
