Great venue for the concert. I have never been to the Excel before and I was pleasantly surprised. A great place for a concert- very clean inside and very loud!

Our family attended the Saturday night Coldplay concert at the Xcel Center. The concert was truly spectacular but the venue also deserves comment. Our tickets were in the nose bleed seats but the sound was still superb and the set up made for a very interactive experience. It is a fine facility for larger venue concerts. The common areas are large and well-designed and the facility is very well-maintained.

The only negative comment I have is with regard to access. It seems like two thirds of the streets in downtown St. Paul are closed, which made getting out of the concert a maze-like nightmare. Hopefully that will be remedied soon.

The Xcel Energy Center is a wonderful venue for the MN Wild Hockey Games. I have hosted numerous events here, attended concerts and other events and I continue to be enchanted with the fantastic design and all of the great offerings.

For any event this place is perfect! We have been to many NHL games, concerts, and more here. It is a great place to check out while in St. Paul, MN
