Well, he did the damn thing and Michael Bolton Presents American Dream: Detroit will hit 450 theatres for a one-night-only run on May 15. Movie-goers will also be treated to a special performance by Michael Bolton (and friends!) from The Grove in LA.
"This documentary is a truly inspiring tale of a city's historical transformation that is certain to entertain, educate and move fans coast to coast", said Fathom Events CEO Ray Nutt.
According to a statement, the film tells "the story of the American Dream.through the eyes of Bolton's own discovery".
Alice Cooper, Francis Ford Coppola, Aretha Franklin, John Varvatos, and Jerry Bruckheimer are among the slew of celebs recruited to say nice buzzwords about the recently revitalized city (or as the trailer suggests, mainly downtown).
