Harlem Globetrotters

Someone asked me in the office the other day what the Harlem Globetrotters were and I replied, “Remember those cool basketball guys from Scooby-Doo?” That is how I remember the Harlem Globetrotters, but I know they are even bigger than their Scooby Doo appearances. The Harlem Globetrotters put on a unique basketball show on hardwoods across the country, selling out some of the biggest basketball arenas. I am pretty sure there will be more people at the Target Center Harlem Globetrotters shows than at some of the Timberwolves games this year.

The Globetrotters ball-handling magic and gravity-defying dunks will be a welcome sight in the NBA defunct Minneapolis market.

Alicia Keys and Jordin Sparks

Alicia Keys is bringing her “As I Am Tour” to the Target Center Minneapolis on Wednesday, April 30th. Tickets go on sale to the public this Saturday, March 15th. This last minute stop at the Target Center is sure to be big for Keys, who has won nine Grammys and has sold over 40 million albums. Alicia Keys tickets will sell quickly especially because she is bringing American Idol superstar Jordin Sparks with her. If you need a good date night concert, the Alicia Keys concert is a sure winner!

Kayne West at Target Center

The Target Center event managers are busy trying to fill the Target Center summer schedule. One of those hot summer shows will Kayne West on June 11th. Kayne West tickets went on sale last week and I can already see Minnesota ticket brokers like Ticket King have lower level tickets near the stage starting out at $150. The face value of the Kayne West tickets was high, the best tickets sold for face at $128 per ticket. That is rather expensive for an artist that irritated Minneapolis fans when he cancelled his appearance in December at the Jingle Ball show. It will be interesting to see if fans will pay the big bucks to see the hot artist or if they will shun his summer show.
