Detroit’s Comerica Park is not only the home to the legendary Detroit Tigers, but it has also been the host of several highly-attended concerts and other events. The venue attracts legions of Tigers fans and concertgoers each year, so it is crucial to book a Comerica Park parking spot ahead of your event with BestParking. The ballpark opened in April 2000, replacing the team’s former home for 87 years, Tiger Stadium. Comerica Bank bought the naming rights for the new venue during construction in 1998, with the deal lasting 30 years. The new design allowed for flexibility, with space for renovations and improvements not possible at the old venue. The venue features a food court and other restaurants, LED scoreboards, a Ferris wheel, carousel and a picnic deck named the Pepsi Porch. There is also a fountain sponsored by General Motors situated behind the park’s center field. Comerica Park is notable for being the only major league stadium with a keyhole strip between the pitcher’s mound and home plate, a feature once present in early baseball stadiums. The venue hosted some of the 2014 NHL Winter Classic events, while others were held at Michigan Stadium. Popular artists who have performed at the ballpark include The Rolling Stones, Bruce Springsteen, KISS, Bon Jovi, Aerosmith, NSYNC, Metallica, Zac Brown Band, Guns N’ Roses, Fall Out Boy, Rihanna, Eminem, Metallica, Jay-Z, the Warped Tour, Billy Joel, Weezer, Kid Rock and Maroon 5, among others. With not only a fan-favorite team being based there but also being host to several popular artists, it is wise to book Comerica Park parking with BestParking prior to the event.
