As far as music is concerned, the Target Center is lacking in the next few months. I suppose it is tough to convince too many rock stars that they should perform in Minnesota in the dead of winter.
Even with the Timberwolves, there is a lot of dead space on the Target Center Schedule the month of February and into March. The Target Center has some family type shows coming up like the Lipizzaner Stallions on February 21st and then a Disney on Ice run March 4th through the 8th, but that is about it.
I bet the Target Center is bummed that they didn’t get that Elton John Billy Joel show that is playing at the Xcel Energy Center on May 5th. That show has got to be a money maker. I bet it would be an interesting job to work in the entertainment promoting industry trying to lure shows to your venue over another – I am sure it is all about the money.
