Ozzy and Rob Zombie, Halloween Night

Ozzy Osbourne and Rob Zombie will be performing live at the Target Center on Wednesday October 31st – yep, Halloween night. It should be a frightful show with two of heavy metal’s stars together on one stage. Frankly, I am amazed that Target Center scored such a memorable date.

This Minneapolis concert will follow BLACK RAIN, Ozzy’s critically acclaimed first album of new studio material in six years and ROB ZOMBIE’s hit film Halloween, which premiered number one at the box office in its debut weekend, grossing an estimated 31 million dollars. Ozzy’s new single “I Don’t Wanna Stop” is OZZY’s biggest rock song of his career, spending 20 weeks at #1 on the R&R Rock Chart and peaking at #1 on the R&R Active Rock chart. The song is also the lead track from EA’s Madden NFL ’08. His second single, currently at radio, is the powerful manifesto "Not Going Away." Ozzy’s album is flying off store shelves and he hasn’t been to Minneapolis in over 4 years so I expect this concert to sell out fast. Both Ozzy and Rob Zombie have a cult like following so buy tickets early if you want to spend Halloween night at the Target Center.

Target Center Gets Shows

What's up with the new trend of shows going to the Target Center? The trend started with the announcement of a Hannah Montana show on 10/21. Minneapolis music fans were next told that there was going to be a Van Halen show at the Target Center on 10/24. Just when we thought we had heard the last of fall shows at the Target Center, An Ozzy show as just announced for 10/31. Just when I had left the Target Center for dead, they trump the Xcel Energy Center with the announcement of three solid shows for this fall. I am sure that Rosen's, Lone Tree, Old Chicago and the rest of the Minneapolis bars are fired up for Minneapolis Concerts and the resurgence of the Minneapolis Concert scene. October will be a hoppin month for the Target Center and other downtown hangouts. Better buy your Target Center Tickets early!

Hannah Montana Media Madness

I wrote about Hannah Montana a few weeks ago when her Target Center concert just hit the news, but in the last few weeks every local news station has covered a Hannah Montana story ranging from angry fan club members who didn’t get tickets to crying six year olds that stood outside of the Target Center the day they went on sale only to leave empty handed.

Everyone is wondering where all of the tickets went and this Target Center blogger is no exception. I know the secondary ticket market scooped up plenty of Hannah tickets. Checking sites like Ticket King Minnesota I see hundreds of seats for the 10/21 show, but I don’t see hundreds of really good seats. Where are all of the first 10 rows? If the fan club didn’t get them and the ticket brokers didn’t get them – who has them? Ticketmaster! Ticketmaster has Hannah Montana tickets locked up in the Premium Seats Auction section of their web site. Ticketmaster is becoming just like ticket brokers across the country and charging an arm and a leg for good Hannah Montana seats.

I know many little girls are hoping to win Hannah Montana tickets, but will there be oodles and oodles of radio contests days before her big Target Center performance to score floor seats? I guess we will have to wait and see. If you want to be guaranteed a seat, be ready to pay big bucks. Hannah Montana fever is all over the Twin Cities!

Van Halen

Van Halen will be playing at the Target Center Minneapolis Wednesday October 24th. This could prove to be one of the hottest concerts of 2007. Inducted into the Rock And Roll Hall of Fame in March of this year, Van Halen has produced a treasured body of work that rock 'n roll music lovers admire and follow fanatically.

Original lead singer David Lee Roth will be with the band that hasn’t toured in more than 20 years. Considered by fans and media alike as one of the most highly anticipated tours in rock and roll history, Roth, guitarist Eddie Van Halen and drummer Alex Van Halen will perform with Eddie's son, Wolfgang who joins the line-up as the band's bass player. Don’t miss Van Halen's signature hits like "Jump," "Panama," "Hot For Teacher" and more. Buy your Van Halen tickets now!
