“Merle Haggard Concert! Great Venue!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2013

We went here to write a concert review for MinnesotaCountry.com and loved it! It is a very historic theatre yet well maintained and up to todays standards. The sound/acoustics are great, it's in an area with plenty of food choices, and they have plenty of drinks for sale at the theatre as well! If they keep country music coming, we will be back! If you're not a country music fan, this is still a great place to see a show of any kind at!

“Great Venue”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2013

Have seen many shows here, the acoustics are great and not a bad seat in the house. Quite a few good music acts come through here and I'm always impressed. Drinks and beer are served. There is ample local parking, restaurants, bars and microbreweries.

“An architectural masterpiece”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

The State Theater is one of four large theaters which house travelling Broadway Shows, musical events and dance in the Hennepin Avenue theater district. All have been renovated to bring them back to their original early 20th century grandeur.

Loved the production of War Horse. The theatre, beverages available, visibility with seating and excellent sound - made for a fantastic evening.

“Fabulous venue!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2013

I have been to the state theater about 5 or 6 times. It's. Becoming one of my favorite places in the twin cities to go and watch an event. The parking is very and easy and very close. All kinds of restaurants and bars nearby. We saw Chicago play and they were fantastic. We saw Fleetwood Mac the night after at the excel,and we enjoyed the Chicago concert more. I think it was more about the venue. The state is just more intimate and convenient. I think it might have been the first time Chicago played at the state, I'm not sure. But they commented on a few occasion how nice the state was. It was like they haven't been there before. Anyway it was a great night and a great time. And I'm sure we will be back many more times.
