I actually flew to MN for a concert here (long story) from CO. It was very similar in feel and size to the Pepsi Center, which is located in Denver. The bathrooms were actually better, although the food and (adult) beverage lines seemed much longer....More

We attended a concert here and it is a great venue. The jumbo screens make it easy to see from all seats.

Hey it is an arena! Staff was friendly and helpful. Drink lines were long. Concert started way after the tickets said it would but everyone else seemed to know that. One of the better arena I have been to.

The concert was amazing! Every single Xcel staff member working was unbelievably polite. We ate at gate 4 (Michelob Fan Zone) prior to the concert. Pricey food and drinks but this is what one expects to pay when eating inside the venue. Skip the fries...More

I attended a concert last night at Xcel Energy Center and didn't love the venue. The one thing I did like was the seats were cushy and more comfortable than other venues. I didn't like the poor way the entrance was managed. There was no...More

We recently went to a Mn Lynx game and it was so great. The whole family enjoyed the game and how easy it was to walk in the concourse during the game and afterwards. All the staff was very helpful when we had ask questions.

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.
