Xcel Energy Center Brad Paisley concert tickets

Brad Paisley TourCountry music sensation Brad Paisley's concert tour is coming to the St. Paul, Minnesota Xcel Energy Center on Saturday, January 14, 2012! The Brad Paisley Tour is called the "Camobunga 2012 World Tour" and the tour kicks off on January 12, 2012 in Grand Rapids, Michigan. St. Paul, Minnesota marks only the THIRD stop on the new tour, and the bands are sure to be fill of energy and excited about the tour starting! There are hardly ANY Brad Paisley tickets left out there, even on the secondary ticket market! If you're wanting to catch the Brad Paisley concert in Minnesota, you better buy your concert tickets now! The Brad Paisley concert starts at 7:30pm, and the doors open at 6:30pm at the Xcel Energy Center.

Brad Paisley is touring with The Band Perry and Scotty McCreery, which is an excellent line-up! Brad Paisley concert tickets are going for $167-184 per ticket, depending on the location! There are great seats left on the floor for Brad Paisley through Ticket King. Ticket King has an office in St. Paul, just a half block from the Xcel Energy Center, and tickets can be picked up there on the day of the concert!

The Band Perry, who is a special guest on the Brad Paisley tour, is a sibling trio who has made a smashing hit on the country charts in 2011. Their debut album, which is self-titled looks to be going platinum by the end of 2011. Their wildly popular No. 1 hit single, "If I Die Young," has put The Band Perry on the country map in a big way!

Scotty McCreery is also touring with Brad Paisley. McCreery came to fame as the winner of Season 10 of American Idol this past May. Scotty McCreery is 18 years old, and is the youngest winner of American Idol, and the first male country artist to win on American Idol, following in the footsteps of female country artist American Idol winner, Carrie Underwood. He has some big shoes to follow there, but Brad Paisley must think very highly of Scotty McCreery to have him tour with him.

Brad Paisley has been to the Xcel Energy Center two other times, in 2005, and almost 2 years ago, to the date, of this concert, January 16, 2010!

Buy your Brad Paisley tickets now, before it's too late and you're kicking yourself when the concert is done and over with!

Jason Aldean tickets for Xcel Energy Center February 17, 2012

Jason Aldean with wife and two daughersJason Aldean tickets went on sale this morning for his show at the Xcel Energy Center on Friday, February 17th at 7:30pm. This Jason Aldean St. Paul concert has already proven to be quite popular! I don't know if the box office has any tickets left, or if they do, I think it is very few, or possibly only limited view!

Jason Aldean is bringing supporting acts Luke Bryan and Lauren Alaina with him to the Xcel!

If you're hoping and planning on getting Xcel Energy Jason Aldean tickets, I'd get them now. I'm pretty sure if you wait, you'll be left out in the cold on concert day!

Jason Aldean is no newbie to the Xcel Energy Center; this concert will be his third visit to St. Paul Xcel. However, this tour is his first headlining visit to the Xcel.

I just read in Country People magazine that Jason Aldean is a HUGE Georgia Bulldogs fan. He even bought a bulldog that has shared bloodlines with the Georgia Bulldogs mascot bulldog, and he named his bulldog Athens, after the city name of where the Bulldogs play. This man has got some team spirit for the Georgia Bulldogs!

I also learned that Jason Aldean has two daughters! Crazy! I had no idea he was a father!

Jason Aldean Laughed Until We Cried lyrics:

Goin’ through my closet the other day
I found an old yearbook
Flipped right to the page of that senior trip
Down there on that Panama strip
We all started yellin’ when we smelled the beach
Couldn't wait to try our fake I.D.’s
We only had a few days
And a whole lot of memories to make

Oh man we were livin’
Didn't waste one minute
We talked and drank and danced and said goodbye
We laughed until we cried

This past year my family
Was sittin’ cross-legged 'round the Christmas tree
Listenin’ to granddad
We all knew it probably be his last
He was crackin’ jokes and we were takin’ turns
Tellin’ stories ‘bout fishin’ or lessons learned
Out on the porch with him
We all felt like kids again

Oh man we were livin
Sittin' there reminiscin'
We sang and talked and traveled back in time
We laughed until we cried

It's like the best days under the sun
Every emotion rolled into one
A little of this a little of that
Kinda happy kinda sad

Just the other night the baby was cryin’
So I got out of bed rocked her awhile
And I held her tight
And I told her it would be all right
And my mind went back to a few years ago
When we tried so long
We almost gave up hope
And I remember you
Comin' in and tellin’ me the news

Oh man we were livin’
Goin’ crazy in the kitchen
We danced and screamed and held each other tight
We laughed until we cried

Justin Moore concert
Justin Moore "If Heaven Wasn't So Far Away" lyrics:

Everyday I'd drive to work across Flint River bridge
A hundred yards from the spot where me and grandpaw fished.
There's a piece of his ol' fruit stand on the side of Sawmill Road

He'd be there peelin' peaches if it was 20 years ago And what I wouldn't give To ride around in that old truck with him
If Heaven wasn't so far away I'd pack up the kids and go for the day
Introduce them to their grandpaw
And watch them laugh at the way he talked
Find my long lost cousin John
The one we left back in Vietnam
Show him a picture of his daughter now
She's a doctor and he'd be proud
Tell 'em we'd be back in a couple of days
In the rear view mirror, we'd all watch 'em wave
Yea, losin' them wouldn't be so hard to take
If Heaven wasn't so far away.

I'd hug all three of those girls we lost from the class of '99
And I'd find my bird dog Bo,
And take him huntin' one more time
Ask Hank why he took those pills back in '53
Ask Janice to sing the second verse of 'Me and Bobbie McGee'
Sit on a cloud and visit for a while
It'd do me good just to see them smile.

If Heaven wasn't so far away I'd pack up the kids and go for the day
Introduce them to their grandpaw
And watch them laugh at the way he talked
Find my long lost cousin John
The one we left back in Vietnam
Show him a picture of his daughter now
She's a doctor and he'd be proud
Tell 'em we'd be back in a couple of days
In the rear view mirror, we'd all watch 'em wave
Yea, losin' them wouldn't be so hard to take
If Heaven wasn't so far
If Heaven wasn't so far
If Heaven wasn't so far away.
So far away
So far awaaaaaaaaaaay

Xcel Energy Center wins awards for being green!

Xcel Energy 50-50 in 2The Xcel Energy Center, along with the St Paul RiverCentre, released the 2nd annual Sustainability Report this week. The venues have successfully completed the "50-50 in 2" waste reduction initiative they set out to do. You, like me, may be wondering what the "50-50 in 2" means! Well, the X, RiverCentre and Roy Wilkins set out to reduce the amount of waste generated by 50% as well as increase the amount of recycling to 50%, by July 2011. Starting two years ago, these venues increased the amount of recycling bins--which is now 1 to 1 with trash cans!

Over 90% of the food service disposables have been switched to compostables, which has made some areas, such as the Treasure Island Ice Lodge in the Xcel, to become almost trash-free! The cups, plates and utensils are now added along with food leftovers into a compost. All bottles and cans are recycled.

These facilities also won the 2011 Recycling Association of Minnesota's 'Green Project' Award for the leaps and bounds reduction in waste they have made!

Way to Go Green!

Minnesota Wild Treasure Island Ice Lodge access!

Minnesota Wild Treasure Island Ice LodgeHave you heard that the Xcel Energy Center has a Treasure Island Ice Lodge pass?!

When you order Minnesota Wild tickets that are on the glass (OTG) tickets, you receive access to the Treasure Island (TI) Ice Lodge. In the Ice Lodge, you receive complimentary food and beverages, starting an hour and a half before the start of all Minnesota Wild home games, and the Lodge stays open until at least an hour following the Wild game.

Beer, wine and soda are all complimentary, and mixed drinks are available for purchase at the cash bar in the Lodge. The menu consists of carved sandwiches, salads, hot dogs and gourmet desserts. Starting when the Ice Lodge opens and being served through the first intermission are the sandwiches and salads. Hot dogs and snacks are surved all game and post game, and desserts are served starting during the second intermission and post-game.

You must have either an OTG ticket, or a TI Ice Lodge pass to gain valid entry into the Treasure Island Ice Lodge. The OTG ticket will be hole-punched, and the TI Ice Lodge pass will be surrendered, and in both cases, you will receive a wristband. This wristband will be needed to regain entry back into the Lodge after the initial visit.

What an awesome option to have to make going to a Minnesota Wild game a little bit more special! Think of the people you could impress by bringing them to a Wild game to sit in on the glass seats, and hang out in the Ice Lodge! Business associates and family alike would be impressed!

Ticket King has Minnesota Wild on the glass tickets available for most games and you get the Treasure Island Ice Lodge Passes with the order of any OTG tickets bought through them. You should give Ticket King a call to see if they have the OTG seats for the game(s) you're wanting to go to! If you aren't sure which Wild tickets will get you the TI passes, give the friendly staff at Ticket King a call and they would be more than happy to help you find OTG tickets for a game!

Mike Yeo Looks to Glorify Minnesota's Ice

With the exception of the Minnesota Twins, all of the major sports teams in Minnesota will be/are experiencing the transition that coincides with a new head coach.

The Vikings are 0-2 under new head coach Leslie Frazier. The Minnesota Timberwolves just hired Rick Adelman. And the Minnesota Wild... Mike Yeo. (Even the Gophers have a new boss)

Yeo has a reputation of holding a serious work ethic and pushing his players to have the same. Yeo has said this job with the Wild has been a long time coming, a story more than 20 years in the making. He started taking notes on coaching over two decades ago and has finally landed his goal position: an NHL head coach.

Yeo is looking to bring a strong defensive system to the Wild, applying tough pressure to the puck, forcing their opponents to think quickly - forcing erros. He recognizes there may be no quick fix for a team three years out of the playoffs, but is striving to bring glory back to the ice of Minnesota.

I Like This New Head Coach

I don't know about anyone else, but Mike Yeo is growing on to me. At first, I was a little skeptical. I didn't like that he didn't really have any experience being a head coach in the NHL, or much experience at all coaching in the NHL. I really like that he went to Finland to meet with Niklas Backstrom and Mikko Koivu. That's an excellent plan of attack. It shows those two players how much Yeo thinks of them. Also, if he wants this team to get behind him, he's going to need the support of his best players. Without their support, he has pretty much no chance of getting the rest of the team to buy into what he's telling them. So great job by Yeo, you're really starting to get my stamp of approval.

Wednesday, July 13, 2011

Adele Coming to the Xcel Energy Center

Saturday Night Live had the most viewers that night in the shows history.

Her newest album, 21, was released on January 24th, 2011. The big single off the album is titled "Rolling in the Deep" which reached number one on the Billboard Top 100. It has been received very well critically and by fans alike.

By Adele tickets for the 24th with Ticket King! They have the best prices in town and they provide the best service!

Wild Buying Out Cam Barker

Once a former No. 4 overall pick filled with promise, Cam Barker is hitting a low point in his career. The Wild placed him on waivers yesterday, and any team in the league can take on the rest of the 25 year old defenseman's salary if they pick him up on waivers. Supposedly Baker's agent has contacted the team, pleading with them to keep Barker on the team for next seson.

Barker has had two spotty seasons with the Wild. He has been injured for parts of both of them but the production simply has not been there.

You know, Cam, we really wish this would have worked out. The Wild really believed in you, I mean thye spent the no.4 pick in the 2004 draft on you, but this really isn't working out. You didn't pan out the way the Wild had hoped and you will likely play elsewhere because of it.

The Minnesota Wild have Finally Hired a New Coach

Hey everyone the Minnesota Wild have finally hired a new coach. This past friday, they hired Mike Yeo as the new head coach of the team. In my opinion, this was a pretty spotty decision. They probably should have hired someone who knew a thing or two more about coaching an NHL team. This guy has no experience.

Butttt, it will also be a lot of fun to see what he can do. I hope he turns out to be a great coach and that the Wiild get their mojo back. I was looking for some good deals on tickets but couldn't find any. Then I decided to look a little harder and found this site called "Ticket King" They did an unbelievable job getting me tickets and I can't wait to use them next year. Buy Wild Tickets now!

NHL Draft

The Wild will be hosting the 2011 NHL draft at the Xcel Energy Center. The draft will take place on June 24th, and 25th.

“The Draft is a signature event, and, as our League gets younger and younger, it offers a preview of the NHL's future,” said Gary Bettman, NHL Commissioner. "The great fans in Minnesota will get a first-hand view of tomorrow's stars.”

The Wild sell out so many games and Minnesotans are so crazy about their Wild that it should sell out. The Wild have the 10th pick in the draft.
