Rage Against The Machine Target Center During RNC

Saint Paul is going to be crazy hosting the Republican National Convention September 1st – 4th, but don’t think for a second that it’s twin city, Minneapolis, will be any quieter. In fact, the Target Center will be rocking on September 3rd when politically charged rockers Rage Against the Machine appear. There was plenty of speculation surrounding the event with the pros and cons of the show being discussed in the media. In the end, Rage Against The Machine opted to do a regular ticketed event at the Target Center Minneapolis (they are doing a free show in Denver for the Democratic National Convention).

I checked local ticket broker Ticket King to see if they were carrying tickets for the event and they are. The floor is general admission and are going for about $150 per ticket on the ticket king web site. I checked on ticketmaster and they were sold out, but the original face was $58 per ticket. Must be a hot ticket. There will be a lot of extra bodies in the Twin Cities those four days, I am sure the ticket brokers of the world are hoping to cash in.
