Target Center Events Calendar looks a little bare compared to other venues

Outside View of the Target Center
Despite being just miles from each other the Target Center in Minneapolis and the Xcel Energy Center in St. Paul are two totally different venues. The Target Center has a busy downtown feel that always seems to have something going on. The Xcel Energy Center in contrast has a just down the street vibe that makes the large scale venue feel much smaller.

Typically both venues have a spring and summer concert schedule that is non-stop. However, the Target Center Concert Schedule this spring seems to be a bit lacking in comparison to the Xcel Energy Center Concert Schedule. The Target Center is bringing in big names like Daughtryand Nickelback. But when compared to the Xcel Energy Center who has Taylor Swift, Bon Jovi, John Mayer, James Taylor and Carole King, and Michael Buble the Target Center seems a little empty.

If you are a loyal Target Center patron, I would suggest taking in some Minnesota Timberwolves games now, while there are still lots on the Target Center Calendar because after the Minnestoa Timberwolves Season the Target Center Schedule is going to start looking a little sparse.

So far, it might appear that TC's calendar looks sparse, but let's not forget that Target Center finished #30 worldwide in Arena Venue Ticket Sales for 2009...
