The food is better options than the typical venue for a concert, and the place is so large... don't bother waiting in line for a restroom, chances are there is another one right around the corner. There also isn't a bad view in the place, so don't worry about where your seats are.

We went here to see Bette Midler and it was great. Do not get a floor seat for a concert. Try to get seats on the side. We had great seats.

We just attended a Bette Midler concert there last week. Drinks are high priced but good seats are everywhere.

I've been to multiple hockey games here, (college and pro) as well as, concerts and events. I don't have a single bad thing to say about 'The X'. Games are thrilling and there's not a bad seat in the house. Acoustics are very good for concerts, there's ampl parking, its easy it find and there are plenty of bars/restaurants in... More

The turn out for this performer was awesome and she performed like the star she is. Great vocals and great performance. Saved the best for last, like an athlete. She pulled out the last three of her most popular songs even at the end of a performance with no intermissions. Great time had by all.

We went to the sold-out RUSH concert here in May 2015. Good venue for a concert, although you do have to turn a little bit to the side in some of the seats to see the stage. Unfortunately when some people to the side and in between you and the stage stand up, unless you're in the NBA, you can't... More

This arena is made for hockey. The club level is very nice with a wonderful sit down restaurant. Easy to find your seating, plenty of staff to direct you.

Great place to watch hockey. Home of the Minnesota State Hockey Tournament and the Minnesota Wild. Great sight lines and a wide concourse. Get tickets if the Wild are in town!

I like the layout of the Xcel Energy Center. It was easy to get in and out and find our seats. The suite was comfortable and the concert was fun.
