Michigan Central concert performers include Diana Ross, Jack White, and Big Sean

Big Sean, Jack White, and Diana Ross are among the headliners appearing at Michigan Central Stations' grand unveiling that's slated for later this week.

Ford promised "iconic Detroit artists" when the renovated train station opens to the public on June 6. The highly-anticipated open house marks the culmination of years of construction at the landmark, which is expected to be a new center of innovation for both the automaker and dozens of start-ups pushing the envelope of mobility.

The outdoor concert will kick off 10 days of inside and outside viewing that will be open to the public. 

On Monday, images from inside the brand-new station were unveiled, which showed off a completely remastered interior that both pays homage to the station's history while looking forward to the industry's future.

The concert will be 90 minutes long and fully outside. It will be accompanied by short films and local leaders who will showcase the legacy of the venue.
