Ahhh … the 1990s.  It was a decade when comedians Tim Allen and Jerry Seinfeld ruled our sit-com nation, when a White House intern and her blue dress made headlines, and grunge emerged from the Pacific Northwest to change the face of music.  It was also the time for travelling festivals like , and “Horizons Of Rock Developing Everywhere,” otherwise known as “H.O.R.D.E.”

This time the “Everywhere” part of the acronym designates just one place in the U.S. as H.O.R.D.E. emerges from its decades-long slumber to occupy the DTE Energy Music Theatre in Clarkston, Mich., July 9.

Back in the day the annual H.O.R.D.E. tours featured acts such as Neil Young & Crazy Horse,Dave Matthews Band, Phish and The Allman Brothers Band.
