Conflicting things? But it is confirmed that Afghanimals are way behind the other two, right?

Here's another tweet from the Detroit Free Press showing the musicians setting up at Hart Plaza. The tweet is Pacific Daylight Time, so the tweets were 3 hours later than shown.

A news story just published by the Detroit Free Press:

'Amazing Race' films in Detroit; teams rappel down Guardian Building
Brian McCollum, Detroit Free Press Published 7:54 p.m. ET July 3, 2018

As workers streamed out of their downtown Detroit offices for the Independence Day holiday, "The Amazing Race" was just getting started.

Production crews and "Amazing Race" competitors including some well-known reality-show faces descended onto the city Tuesday afternoon to shoot for the CBS-TV show's upcoming Season 31.

It was an adventurous day that had teams rappelling down the 36-story Guardian Building, scurrying to assorted spots across the city and eventually dropping into Hart Plaza, where about 100 musicians were gathered for a mass performance of the hometown White Stripes anthem "Seven Nation Army."

The upcoming season of "Amazing Race" is pitting alumni of that show against veterans from the fellow CBS reality series "Survivor" and "Big Brother." Created in 2001, the "Amazing Race" sends contestants on globetrotting adventures, where they take on challenges, solve puzzles and find clues as the competition unfolds.

The show has not previously shot in the Motor City.

Passerby in downtown Detroit were treated to scenes of contestants frantically dashing out of the Guardian Building, quickly convening with their teammates at "The Spirit of Detroit" statue, and hopping into taxicabs for their next destinations.

Competitors spotted downtown Tuesday included Tyler Oakley the popular Michigan-born YouTube celeb who starred on Season 28 of "Amazing Race" and Jamal Zadran, a Season 23 alum. Zadran looked glum as he stood helplessly for at least two hours outside the Guardian, waiting for his teammate to emerge while other teams were well off to their next challenges around the city.


At Hart Plaza, about 100 musicians assembled early afternoon amid scorching heat for several hours of "Seven Nation Army" rehearsals. The plaza was gated off for the occasion, leaving curious passerby straining for glimpses within, as the song's familiar riff kicked up again and again.

About 40 singers, 15 drummers and 50 guitarists and bassists were gathered at the riverside plaza.

A music director could be heard asking the musicians to let loose and have fun, but to stick to the metronome and play the song straight.

"I PROMISE TO FOLLOW THE CLICK TRACK," they recited in unison early on.

It wasn't quite the scale organizers had hoped for: The music gathering was organized by Rockin' 1000, an Italian organization that has staged similar big-group performances around the world. A call-out issued last week sought "hundreds" of players for the Detroit event, but Tuesday's turnout clearly fell well short of that mark.

The "Seven Nation Army" shoot was originally targeted for Belle Isle. That plan fell through when the Michigan Department of Natural Resources denied the group's permit, saying they weren't initially informed that hundreds of musicians might be showing up.

Couple of Rockin 1000 rehearsal videos from Hart Plaza.  Singers face forward in one and towards the band in the other.  Note that the special tarp platforms are still there, however, in the Detroit Free Press photos Plaidmoon posted it appears they are drummer platforms.
