A spectacular hockey venue with good seats from nearly every place in the building. Great food on the club level but adequate elsewhere. Get there early and eat in nearby Rice Park restaurants or just off 7th Street.

In the arena for hockey. Wonderful venue and recommend also for arena concerts. No arena concerts are perfect, but this is better than most. amenties are good, as is moving around the arena.

Everything about Xcel is right... Location, parking, access, facilities, nearby restaurants, atmosphere. It's easy to find and park. The layout makes it easy to locate places inside. Perfect for MN State High School Dance Competitions! I miss the good 'ol days when they were held here instead of the Target Center.

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.
