The Verve Pipe moves to Plachta Auditorium for Aug. 17 show
Due to potential heavy thunderstorms, Max & Emily's Eatery has announced a change in venue for the Thursday, Aug. 17 show in their Summer Concert Series.
The Verve Pipe, known for its hit single "The Freshmen," are now scheduled to play Aug. 17 in Plachta Auditorium at Central Michigan University. Shows usually take place on the corner of Broadway and University streets in downtown Mount Pleasant.
The eatery made the announcement on its Facebook page Wednesday, adding a decision was made due to Thursday's weather forecast. The National Weather Weather Service reports there is a chance for thunderstorms on Thursday night.
Natalie Shattuck is slated to open the show at 6 p.m., while The Verve Pipe takes the stage at 7 p.m. No food will be available for purchase at Plachta Auditorium. The event is hosted by CMU and University Events.
The Verve Pipe, a Michigan-based band, has a combination of rock music and songs written especially for kids, according to the Max & Emily's website. The band has recently released a children's album and two rock albums. The Verve Pipe has performed in Mount Pleasant in the past and is celebrating the 20th anniversary of its platinum selling album, Villains.
