I really enjoyed this venue. It was clean and well lit. The mini donuts were so delicious and the prices for food wasn’t outrageous. The parking was good and not too over priced. There was a fair amount of bathrooms so no waiting in line....More

Wonderful to see Neil Diamond, but the venue in Glasgow was a disaster. Long queues and took 20 minutes to get two bottles of water. Couldn't see on ground floor as the floor doesn't slope, couldn't see for folks standing, why not have a standing...More

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

YOU KNOW ITS GOOD WHEN YOU“RE HOARSE AND CANT HEAR. Nice setup, fast checkin (they DO check purses), nice usher in section 126 john. Seats are small so you can't be timid about touching your neighbor. Lots of food, didn't like the beer hawkers, they...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 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.
