A la Jay Leno, Dr. Phil will be holding two free events in Detroit, and I mean the city of Detroit, and third ticketed event in Windsor coming in April.
On April 1st at 7:30pm Dr. Phil will be giving a presentation at Music Hall in Detroit.
The next day he will be present at a town-hall type meeting at I am my Brother's Keeper Ministries (the one that Mitch Albom wrote about around Christmas) in Detroit.
A third appearance at the Colosseum at Caesars Windsor will cost $75 Canadian to get into.
Good for Dr. Phil. Even though I don't watch his show and am not really a fan, as a reporter on the goings on in the Detroit Metro area felt obligated to comment on this. Plus you know Dr. Phil is winning points with Detroiters. He's appearing in the actual city, not the suburbs. Not to take anything away from Leno because he is doing a great thing and should not be criticized by Detroit city council. But after the outcry by Detroit city council about wanting Leno to do a show in downtown Detroit I think Dr. Phil wanted to be seen as someone who really cares.
