Andre Rieu

Classical violinist and conductor Andre Rieu will be performing live at the Xcel Energy Center St Paul on October 17th 2007 at 7:30 p.m. Rieu is rated as one of Billboards top classical artisits and is known for his spirited violin playing that encourages concert goers to waltz in the aisles. Tickets for Andre Rieu are often hard to come by for an average fan as many of the seats are reserved for public television pledges. Known as the "Modern King of Waltz", Andre Rieu is sure to put on a great St Paul Concert, but buy tickets early or you may be disappointed with the seat selection. Andre Rieu Xcel Energy Center.

Rascal Flatts in Concert 10/27

For those of you starved for a solid show at the Xcel Energy center, I have good news. Rascal Flatts is set to invade the Xcel Energy Center October 27th. The show is going to be the normal set up with the stage at one and and three main floor sections. It looks as though it sold extremely fast through Ticketmaster on Saturday and that the Ticket Brokers are asking substantially over the face value for seats up close. Last year, Rascal Flatts played at the Minnesota State Fair and you couldn't find a seat the week of the show so don't delay buying your Rascal Flatts tickets at the Xcel Energy Center.

Minnesota Wild Pre-Season

The Xcel Energy Center is home to the NHL Minnesota Wild and the Minnesota Wild Hockey Season is right around the corner. The first Wild pre-season game is just one month away on September 18th vs. rival Detroit Red Wings. Wild tickets are pretty cheap for the pre-season games so it’s a great chance to get out and see a great NHL hockey game at the top-notch Xcel Arena in St. Paul. You can get tickets from local Minnesota ticket broker Ticket King for around $20 and sit in section 229 row 5. That’s an upper level seat, but any one who has been to the Xcel Energy Center knows there really isn’t a bad seat in the house. From section 229 you can see all of the fast Minnesota Wild Hockey action and you can see the Wild goalie make all the big saves in the first and third periods and see Wild hotshots score on the Detroit Red Wings during the second period. Let’s go Wild!

American Idols Tickets

What is up with the crappy shows this summer at the Xcel Energy Center. The American Idols come to the Xcel Energy Center on 8/4 and it appears as though tickets to this show are just as easy to find as the Jackfest seats were last week. Would someone please announce a tour that matters so that I have an excuse to get a babysitter for my kids and head down to the St. Paul Xcel Energy Center for some solid entertainment. However, if you are bored tomorrow and you are looking for some super cheap entertainment, the American Idols Concert is a good option. I expect seats to be selling for less than 1/2 of the face value outside the X.
