Went there for a concert. The sound was excellent. Our seats were great, lower level, stage left. Had a great view of the stage. It appeared there wasn't a bad seat in the house. I prepaid for parking when I purchased the tickets, that saved $5. Everyone working was knowledgeable and got us to our seats without any trouble. Great place for a concert.
Great venue for concerts, it was my fifth one there, only one hockey game under my belt. Always pleasant staff, always good snacks and drinks! The only need for improvement is exiting the facility, it gets so congested after an event, especially if you are at club level or the 200s. Otherwise, the acoustics are amazing, the entertainment always sounds great and the crowd's electricity is amplified making concerts and hockey games an awesome experience in Xcel.
