Arena-rockers Matchbox Twenty will play the best arena: Xcel Energy Center

The Xcel Energy Center will soon host maturing mainstream rock band Matchbox Twenty. Matchbox Twenty have grown considerably since the release of their first album in 1996. While that album yielded five huge singles, their latest music is smart radio rock that hasn’t attracted a lot of attention but is still respectable. Lead singer Rob Thomas has even released an eponymous solo album that strayed some from Matchbox’s serious persona. The Xcel Energy Center will be a great venue for the band’s longtime fans to see them live. The Xcel should suit both the band’s rockers and ballads. Get Matchbox Twenty tickets for February 4, 2007.

Barry Manilow at Xcel Energy Center

Twin Cities music fans will want to head to the Xcel Energy Center tomorrow night to see Barry Manilow live in concert. It is Manilow's first trip to St Paul and this music fan guesses it will be his last, so consider this a once in a lifetime opportunity. Music fans will be singing along to great hits such as "Copacabana" well into the evening. It’s not too late to get Barry Manilow concert tickets from local ticket brokers like Ticket King. Ticket King will even save you the shipping charges if you pick them up at their local office. There isn’t too much going on in St Paul tomorrow night so you might as well buy Barry Manilow tickets and take in the show. His St Paul show is a whole lot cheaper than buying a plane ticket to see him in Vegas!
