Minnesota Wild Preseason Ends

The Minnesota Wild ended the preseason tonight at the Xcel Energy Center with a 5-2 win over the Chicago Blackhawks. Normally, I don't pay much attention to the Wild Ticket market for the preseason games but I couldn't help but notice that there was actually demand for them this year. Most notable, was the fact that Minnesota Wild Tickets for the game tonight were actually being sold for close to face value. I checked Ticket King's website this afternoon and they only had two seats left. If there was big demand for Wild Tickets for the preseason, I can only imagine what the demand will be for the regular season. GO WILD!!!

Bruce Springsteen Nov. 2nd

Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band are coming to the Xcel Energy Center, Saint Paul on Friday November 2, 2007 07:30 PM. Springsteen will have an end stage set-up with a general admission floor. “The Boss” is well known for his marathon shows in which he and the E Street Band revolve amongst intense ballads, rousing anthems, and party rock and roll songs, with Springsteen telling long whimsical or deeply emotional stories in between.

Bruce Springsteen was just at the Xcel not too long ago when he featured songs from his Seeger Sessions album, influenced by the radical musical activism of Pete Seeger. The tour did great in Europe, but some US cities, particularly conservative cites, reported sparse attendance. Bruce Springsteen is hitting the road again to promote his newest album entitled Magic that is set to come out October 2nd. Bruce Springsteen has sold over 60 million albums in the U.S. alone and is sure to sell out the Xcel Energy Center so be sure to buy Bruce Springsteen tickets early.

Gopher Hockey at the Xcel

It is no secret that the Xcel Energy Center is one of the best locations to watch a hockey game. As home to the NHL Minnesota Wild, I think Minnesotans often take the "X" for granted. The awesome sight lines, the open concourses, the ease of parking, the light and sound system and the energy of watching hockey at the Xcel Energy Center is an experience to remember. On Friday October 12th and Saturday October 13th, the Xcel Energy Center will smooth it’s ice for the University of Minnesota Golden Gophers and three other top notch hockey teams for the Ice Breaker Invitational. The University of Minnesota will be representing the WCHA, Boston College from Hockey East, University of Michigan from the CCHA, and Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (RPI) of ECAC Hockey.
