I have gone to the Xcel many times - for concerts and for hockey games. Most often I have been in a suite (their suites are very nice). I have sometimes been in the normal seats. The first tier of seats are all excellent. But as you continue up, there are seats that really are very far away and I... More

First visit to the Xcel. I went there on a Sunday night for a concert featuring two old timers: Santana and Stewart. The center itself was fine, although, on a Sunday night, most of the concession stands were closed, causing very long lines at the few that were open. Overall, it was a fun experience.

Rod Stewart was an exceptional showman! What a concert. Sound was great, he interacted with the audience, sang great songs. A first class production. Santana and his band, which was first to perform, ( drums and other instruments) overwhelmed his and his associates suburb guitar work. Too loud. Sound mixers should spend some time checking what works in that great... More

Highly recommend seeing a Hockey game or going to a concert at this venue. Updated stadium that has good sightlines from every seat, (Even good for concerts) you have to experience our state of the art building that is already the home to many great memories.

I have been to the Xcel Energy Center more than 20 times, and I am still never dissapointed. I love this sports stadium, whether it's a Minnesota Wild game, Minnesota Swarm game, college hockey game, concert, or anything else, it is just stunning. The only real problem I have with the x is how expensive everything is there. Other than... More

Attended many concerts at the Xcel, I must say, it is a treat each time. Cannot say enough good things about this venue. Usually clean, the staff are friendly, the bars and restaurants are a little spendy but worth it for a night out and there really isn't a bad seat in the place!

I love the location! The ease to get in and out is probably the best of any venue. I also love the consistency of every event I attend here!

I've seen both Wild games here as well as college hockey when the WCHA held the Final Five here. It's an amazing facility and an amazing atmosphere. Best arena in hockey.

The Xcel Energy Center is a well thought out building that provides an excellent spectator experience, no matter the venue. If you are from out of town, try to attend an event here while during your visit. The area has ample parking and an extensive hospitality (hotels, restaurants) industry in close proximity. FYI: St. Paul was just recently voted number... More

I've been to the Xcel now a couple of times- once for a Hockey game and once for a concert. The facility -GOOD - is very nice but the prices for the concessions are OUTRAGEOUS and they should be ashamed! A bottle of water was $5 and a draft beer was $10!?! I would never pay that, why do people??... More
