“Concerts”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 7, 2013

I have been to a number of concerts over the years at Xcel Energy Center and enjoyed them all. Getting inside and out is not to hard going through the crowd, it has pretty good ingress & egress. The sound system and acoustics are pretty good too.

“Good Venue for a game and a concert! Easy to park and get to.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 7, 2013

We visited the Xcel Center twice in a weekend, once for a hockey game (go Oilers!) and to see Fleetwood Mac in concert. We left early the MOA early and found a parking spot in a lot just across the road. Caught some food at a local restaurant and enjoyed our visit to the center. Always expensive for food and drinks, but you should expect that at any place like this. Still cheaper than others. Staff were very helpful and smiling all the time. At the end, it didn't take long to exit and less time to leave the parking lot and get on the highway to head back to the hotel. Great experience both times.

“Fleetwood Mac rocked!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 7, 2013 via mobile

I took my mother to see Fleetwood Mac at the Xcel Energy center and the place rocked! The acoustics were a little off at the beginning of the show but was quickly fixed. I've seen several shows here and like the location.

“Fleetwood Mac”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 1, 2013

Went to a concert and saw Fleetwood Mac. It was awesome. This is a much better place then the Target Center to see a concert. The sound quality is excellent.
