It was a great venue for the American Craft Show this spring. Easy to get to and great access to plenty of parking that is very close. Good options for food on site and great assortment of restaurants in close proximity. It is handicap friendly also.

Rated as one of the best sports venue in the country (even beating Lambeau Stadium in Green Bay!), you have to experience a Wild game in person. I don't know a red line from a blue line, but know that hockey is one of the best in-person sporting events in the country. And this is the best place to do... More

Had a great experience at the concert, but very stressful finding it. I am from out of state and had not been here before. The main interstate you need to take to get here is closed right now. No indication of this on their website. Took me a long time to get here and that's not cool when I am... More

Came here to see Journey in concert. Our tickets were located in the lobby at the VIP Nation table as we had purchased a special ticket package. Arrived earlier than expected, tried to find a restroom. Was told to go outside down to another gate but needed a ticket to get back in. Two different security personnel told us different... More

My wife and I went to the Xcel for the Durand Durand concert. Great place to see a concert. Pretty easy getting in and out of the venue. Parking was convenient. And the concert was great. Not bad getting thorough the security line either. We had a great time.

Our first visit to Xcel Energy Center was to see Doobie Brothers and Journey. The tickets were a Christmas gift and for the Club Level. We were overwhelmed and impressed. Cannot think of a single negative thing to say. Everything was great!

My wife have seen several phenomenal concerts here. From Bob Seger to most recently Duran Duran and a lot in between. We have always had great views, thankfully! The place is super easy to get around and if you can't find the beverage you are looking for, just ask and anyone of the servers will point you in the right... More

We were impressed with the handling of large amounts of people, but it is a bit chaotic if you have children along. I believe they handle crowds as good as could be expected.

Took my adult sons to the Journey/Doobie Brothers concert and had a great time! It was cool, comfortable, and VERY loud! We purchased on-floor seats since we had never been there before. I would sit there again if the seats were Row 24 or closer. Otherwise, I would purchase lower level seats closest to the stage. There were plenty of... More

I was here for the Doobie Brothers and Journey concert. I have been to several concerts in arenas and I must say this is the best venue. They have ample bathrooms and there's plenty of concessions open with some great beer selections. There really is not a bad seat in the house. While outdoor concert sometimes provide a better venue... More
