Not a bad seat in this house. Every wild game is electric and the fans are outstanding. If you go there for a concert the acoustics are by far the best arena I’ve ever been in.

If you are a hockey fan in any way, shape, form... They you must get to this venue before you die !!! If you are not a hockey fan then read some reviews regarding concerts held in this building, I heard they are great.

Attended a Minnesota Wild hockey game here. Arrive early and just wander around the inside of the building. Great attraction. Great food. Lines weren't too long for food or beverage. I think every seat in the arena gives a great view of the game.

This was a great rink; sold out for the home opener. Lots of different food and drink choices, easy to get to, and many restaurants and bars in walking distance for afterwards.

I've been to the "X" for a variety of concerts over the years. Each time I've gone, the staff has been friendly, security lines move fast, and the seats are great. I especially appreciate the great acoustics as I've attended pop star to pop opera...More

I was left of stage, section 105 for the TSO concert. I liked it because the lights and lasers weren't directly in my face. Also because I wasn't in front of the speakers. Easier on my ears.

Which show are you speaking of? The box office is located on Kellogg Blvd. You enter from gate 1. Box Office is straight ahead of you.
