Perched on a bluff overlooking the Mississippi River, the Xcel Energy Center is where the big stars put on concerts in St. Paul and it's home to the Minnesota Wild and Minnesota Swarm. Frequent events are held here like the American Craft Council exhibit in April 2014. The event was a juried art fair with craftsmen from across the nation... More

The Xcel Center has so many positives. Here are some highlights- 1) Incredible views- the seats are so close to the action compared to other arenas. Second deck hockey seats almost hover over the action. 2) Looks classy. Wherever you are in the arena, floor, seats, aisles, concourses, entry; the Excel Center has dark colors and accents, and great lighting.... More

I am a Pittsburgh Penguins STH, and made it to Xcel for the April 2014 Wild - Pens game. Everything other than the Penguins performance on the ice was outstanding. The sightlines are good form anywhere. The "Minnie donuts: for $5 were a great concession.

Recently attended an Imagine Dragons concert at the Xcel. Awesome sound quality and seating. I don't think there is a bad seat in the house. We were 5 rows up from the bottom, right about middle of the arena and could see the stage great. Parking was a little tricky, but it's like that everywhere for an event. They're are... More

I took my 9 year old son to the MN Wild hockey game here last night. It was our first Wild game, and we had an awesome time from start to finish! I won the tickets from K102 radio station, and the seats were awesome! Only 10 rows up on lower level in the corner by the goal. I was... More

My husband and I attended the Paul Simon/Sting concert. We had good seats in the lower section off to the side. (I think they were better then on the floor.) Staff was helpful and friendly. We actually found free parking on the street a couple blocks away. (We were there around 5:30. The concert started at 8:00). Food and Drinks... More

We made the trip here for the JT concert. I purchased seats in the first balcony section, in the back, 13 rows up from the floor. VERY good seats. The stage was very visible, the stadium seating is such that heads are never in your way. Beer and soda were concert priced, $10 and $5 respectively. Nice accommodating staff. Easy... More

Went here for a minnesota wild game. We were like 2nd row from the top, but still a VERY nice complex. Great food , everything is easy to find. Definitely go here for a hockey game! It is probably one of the nicest hockey arenas I have been in!
