A very exciting hockey arena. Fans are phenomenal! One of the best I have ever been to. Not a bad seat in the house.

Adele kicked off her US tour in St. Paul and we were lucky enough to score tickets. We had great seats and acoustics were very. Good. I wouldn't hesitate to attend a concert here again. St. Paul was a wonderful host for this concert!

We have been season ticket holders for the Minnesota Wild for 5 years and we think the X is a great place to host the Wild. The ushers are amazing and some remember us from game to game even though we can't attend all 42 of them. They keep the place clean and running smooth.

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!
