One of my favorite concert venues. The staff is excellent from security to ushers to concessions. I like that the venue isn't huge and it's accessible by public transportation or has ample parking.

I've been to a number of Wild hockey games and the experience is never disappointing, well, maybe a little if the Wild lose. The atmosphere is great along with the people as we are all out to have fun. The venders are polite and bathrooms...More

Xcel Energy Center is only 17 years old, and while it still looks newish and nice, it's designed like the old dumpy arenas. The hallways are narrow, and there aren't enough rest rooms. Fighting my way through the hallways to get to my seats was...More

I have attended multiple Minnesota Wild NHL games here - each time in a different part of the arena - and all offering excellent views of the action. This is a magnificent setting for hockey. Above average food and beverage options for a sports venue....More

What can I say…. The venue was spectacular, the sound and lighting were amazing… As a former performer I don’t go to many concerts, I’m too critical and I just don’t enjoy them, constantly picking them apart, complaining, don’t like the crowds, you name it!...More

Going to a concert in March, I would like a recommendation for a seat, left, right, or center and what row. Thanks

I was left of stage, section 105 for the TSO concert. I liked it because the lights and lasers weren't directly in my face. Also because I wasn't in front of the speakers. Easier on my ears.
Which is the best entrance to line up for general admission concert tix? We want to get the rail in front of the stage. Thanks!

Which show are you speaking of? The box office is located on Kellogg Blvd. You enter from gate 1. Box Office is straight ahead of you.
