Xcel Energy Center consumed with Republican National Convention in September

The upcoming Xcel Energy Center schedule is focused around the Republican National Convention and getting ready for the RNC. Most of August and through the RC event dates of Sept 1-4 there are no concerts to be seen at the X. This seems unusual to Minnesota music fans since the hot summer concert series at the Xcel Energy Center is something to look forward to. Of course, it is an honor to host a national party convention and it will bring a lot of dollars into the state. The Xcel will look a bit different on TV after the RNC renovations, but I know hosting the convention is a win for the venue regardless of which party you support.

Xcel Energy Center George Michael and Neil Diamond in July

The Xcel Energy Center will host two big performers the month of July. First will be George Michael and his 25 Live tour on Monday, July 7th. George Michael will be treating fans to new music and of course the old favorites. He has a unique stage layout and the Xcel Energy Center seating chart indicates Floor row 3 is actually the first row of chairs. It looks like there will probably be a pit of some sort so I would recommend a good lower level section for this show. Ticket King has 102, row 15 and those would be perfect for this show.

The second performer to hit the Xcel Energy Center in July is none other than Neil Diamond on July 19th and 20th. This two show event is sure to bring a lot of Neil Diamond fans to St Paul. With a four-decade long career that has seen more than 125 million records sold worldwide, Neil Diamond is a legendary performer. Everyone knows the song “Sweet Caroline” and you can bet there will be thousands singing along at the Xcel Energy Center. Neil Diamond also has a unique stage set-up that looks like he will have two small wing sections on either side of the stage. This leads me to believe that he will have a center section that juts out a bit and will give fans a great opportunity to see this old crooner at work.
