Xcel Energy Center Ice serves more than just the Wild

The Xcel Energy Center ice has been busy with Minnesota high school girls the last couple of days. The MSHSL girls state hockey tournament has kept the arena buzzing with hockey excitement while the Minnesota Wild is on the road.

The Xcel Energy Center also hosts the boys state high school tournament from March 5th through 8th. The top boys games sell out every year and high school hockey fans must resort to aftermarket ticket-sellers like Ticket King if they want to be a part of the tournament. Minnesota is known as the state of hockey and we are the only state that has this much excitement and interest at a high school level. Minnesota has set several attendance records for high school hockey and will continue to draw large crowds into the Xcel Energy Center for high school games. If the teams are from large communities like Edina or Bloomington, you can bet that Minnesota State High School Hockey tickets will be in high demand! See ya at the tourney!

Bon Jovi Video Contest for Xcel Energy Center

Bon Jovi is coming to the Xcel Energy Center for two nights on March 18th and 19th and has a special opportunity for local residents to make their claim to fame. Bon Jovi is asking local Minnesotans to go out and film why you love your town.

The contest asks folks to "get creative and film short videos that show why they love their hometown - the people, places, icons and scenery that make it a special place." Online voters and a panel of judges will select the best footage, and it will air when the band performs "I Love This Town" in concert. Besides your claim to fame, there will be prizes of signed CDS and special Bon Jovi tickets that will let you see the show from the stage. Videos must be submitted three days before the concert date so get busy! For full details, see

If you don’t win tickets, local ticket brokers like Ticket King can get you great seats to both shows.

Linkin Park = Huge concert

Perhaps one of the biggest rock bands of today will play Xcel Energy Center on February 13. You might have heard of them, a little band called Linkin Park. Hailing from Agoura Hills, California, Linkin Park’s first album Hybrid Theory was certified diamond by the RIAA. Linkin Park is selling more CDs than any other band right now, and they are credited right now by the record industry as a savior. Their “nu metal” rap-rock hybrid has softened to more straightforward rock with their 2007 Minutes to Midnight, but legendary producer Rick Rubin’s production has helped the band find a direction that can lead to their longevity. Linkin Park tickets are sure to be one hot ticket at the Xcel Energy Center. If you don’t get yours right away then get Linkin Park tickets at the Xcel Energy Center here.
