Xcel Energy Center
Home to over 150 sporting and entertainment events and around 1.7 million visitors a year, the Xcel Energy Center in downtown Saint Paul, Minnesota, delivers memorable events for both stars and fans. Regarded as one of the finest arenas in the world, the entertainment venue features four levels of seating, including one suite level and three levels for normal seating, and boasts excellent acoustics. The center was named after its locally-based sponsor Xcel Energy when it opened its doors on September 29, 2000. Among the most notable concerts held at the Xcel Energy Center, live shows by Bruce Springsteen, Shania Twain, and Prince made the cut for having the most "firsts and records."
