The Center was sparkly clean. We arrived early for the concert so we could people watch and were quite taken by the cleanliness of seating areas, floors and huge windows. It was quite the perfect venue (about 18,000 excited fans I think), sold out, for...More

The latest concert I attended was Iron Maiden. Fantastic. Good sight lines from the seats, and the video screens worked well. Even leaving the venue was easy. Lines were not too long anywhere we went. Crowd management went well.

Saw a live music show here. We were halfway up and the sound was surprisingly good! Really like the way the venue is laid out and choice of concessions.

Whether a concert or a Wild game the Xcel is a great ticket. The seating and accessibility are second to none. And there is also the bonus of 7th St. Restaurants to choose from before or after the show.

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.

We had a great first experience at the arena for the Tool concert! We used the Parking Panda site for reserved parking at the nearby River Centre Ramp - well worth it! There was a skywalk adjacent too, which is great if you're attending an...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 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 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.
