Originally owned by Detroit area businessman and film house entrepreneur John H. Kunsky, the “Kunsky Royal Oak”, as it was known then, opened to a sold out audience in 1928. Lavishly decorated and superbly appointed, the art-deco movie palace quickly made its mark as one of Detroit's finest suburban theatres. In 1978 programming moved toward hosting live entertainment and the venue became known as the Royal Oak Music Theatre.

In 2004 Worldwide Entertainment rescued the theatre from relative obscurity and in 2007, after merging with the promotional giant AEG Live, the Royal Oak Music Theatre became the Detroit area’s preeminent club-style, concert venue- attracting world-class musicians and performers such as: The Black Keys, Lady Gaga, Wilco, Eric Church, Ray LaMontagne, Fleet Foxes, The Decemberists, Aziz Ansari, Wiz Khalifa, The Pogues, Adele, Amy Schumer, Elvis Costello, Skrillex, Morrissey, Passion Pit, Louis CK, Sarah Silverman, Neutral Milk Hotel, Alabama Shakes, Alt-J, Zedd, A Day To Remember, Bastille and many, many more.
