Target Center Schedule

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.

Target Center Review

Chadley took me up on my challenge for writing a Target Center Lil’ Wayne Review – here is what he had to say:

This show was probably the best concert i have ever been to. Lil Wayne and T-Pain are 2 of my favorite rappers and always will be besides the late Tupac Shakur may he R.I.P. The show started off with Gym Class Heros and ended with Lil Wayne, i had front row tickets to the concert and i left it with a huge adrenaline rush and barely able to hear, by far the funnest time i have ever had, keep up the good work.

Thanks for the feedback, Chad the Mad Man! I appreciate you taking the time to comment on my blog - I hope you enjoy more shows at the Target Center soon!

Lil’ Wayne Minneapolis Tour Stop

I admit I am not really into the hip-hop style of music Lil’ Wayne performs, but I saw his name on a list of top things to do in 2009 put out by the Pioneer Press. Really the list item was to attend a concert at the Xcel and Target Center and his January 19th show date made the list. Lil’ Wayne will be joined by Keyshia Cole and T-Pain and special guests Gym Class Heroes.

I have to admit I probably won’t be going to the Lil’ Wayne show. However, I will make the same pledge on this Target Center blog site as I did on my Xcel Energy Center blog, if you write a Lil’ Wayne show review in the comments section of my blog, I will post it on the front page and give you full credit. I want to make this blog about all types of shows and music at the Target Center not just the ones I attend.

Monday, January 19th is also Martin Luther King Jr. Day, I hope Lil’ Wayne and everyone takes a moment to remember that and all that Dr. King did for our country. As a recognized federal holiday, the parking meters won’t be enforced either so get down town early enough to snag one and you won’t have to worry about paying for Target Center parking.
