Xcel Energy Center Tickets
Opened on September 29, 2000, the Xcel Energy Center has been home to National Hockey League’s Minnesota Wild, ever since it’s opening. With the capacity of seating 18,064, Xcel Energy Center is the center of sporting entertainment in the city of Saint Paul, Minnesota. While being operated by the Minnesota Sports & Entertainment, the arena is under the ownership of the city of St. Paul. Apart from Minnesota Wild, Xcel Energy Center also hosts the home games of Minnesota Swarm of National Lacrosse League. The Minnesota Swarm started playing their home games at the arena from January 2005. In 2002 and 2011, the arena also hosted NCAA Frozen Four.

In addition to the sporting events, Xcel Energy Center has played host to a number of live concerts as well. In its history, Xcel Energy Center has staged the performances of the acts like Pavarotti, Tim McGraw and Faith Hill, Bruce Springsteen, Pearl Jam, Lady Gaga, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Mannheim Steamroller, Simon & Garfunkel, Neil Diamond, Bon Jovi, Kenny Chesney, the Rolling Stones, Prince, the Police and a lot more.

Presently Xcel Energy Center stands on the site of now-demolished arena called the St. Paul Civic Center. Before Minnesota Wild represented the city, Minnesota North Stars played in the National Hockey League while being based in St. Paul. But due to the unsuitable condition of the Civic center, the city lost its National Hockey League franchise to Dallas. After North Stars move to Dallas, several attempts were made to attract Winnipeg Jets and Hartford Whalers in to the city, but they all went in vain.
The only hope for the city to have its own National Hockey League franchise again was to build a new facility that could accommodate the needs of a major league hockey franchise. So in order to get a new Expansion franchise in the city of Saint Paul, the city had to lay foundation of a new facility. So with the total construction cost of $130 Million, the Xcel Energy Center broke ground on June 23, 1998 and it finally opened its doors for audience in September 2000. Almost four years after its opening, the arena went on to be ESPNs best overall Sports Venue in United States in 2004. Since its opening, the arena has also played host to various wrestling events organized by both the WWE and now defunct WCW. The Xcel Energy Center was also the site for Vote of Change tour concert in 2004, which featured greats like R.E.M, Brighteyes and Bruce Springsteen.
This year Xcel Energy Center promises to bring all thrills and chills back to the fans, like it always does. So if you see your favorite event being staged at the arena, make no delays in getting your hands on Xcel Energy Center tickets.
