Minneapolis and St. Paul is luckily enough a big enough metropolitan area that acts from all over the world come here to show off their pipes. Not the kind of pipes that get clogged when you put coffee grounds down them, but the figurative vocal pipes. Acts of all varieties always make sure to include Minneapolis on their tours, not just the world-class singers. Here is a list of some of the upcoming performances in Minneapolis you won’t want to miss in the next few months.
The country legend, Alan Jackson, will be coming to Minneapolis Oct. 28. Since the late 90’s Jackson has been a staple in the country music scene and will surely go down as one of the best of all time. His shows never disappoint his masses of local fans, and this concert will be extra special as it will be hosted in the newly renovated Target Center in downtown Minneapolis. He is one of the first acts to be playing after the renovations.
Lana Del Rey
On Jab. 5, Minneapolis will be in for a treat as Lana Del Rey comes to town. She is one of the most talented singers of this generation and is known for her excellent and raw live performances, a rarity amongst other singers in her genre. If you are in the Minneapolis area you won’t want to miss this show, tickets just went on sale last week, but be sure to get yours before you miss your chance.
Little Big Town
This country band will be making a stop in Minneapolis on Apr. 5 in 2018, but it should bring out one of the biggest crowds to Target Center that we have seen in awhile. In the middle of the Timberwolves season, this will be a great change of pace for downtown Minneapolis. They have been a force in the country scene for over a decade and they continue to grow their following with every new album the produce. You have a while before tickets are available, but be sure to keep an eye out for when they are released because they will sell like hot cakes, based on previous concerts in the Twin Cities in the past.
The Seattle native carries a strong following here in Minneapolis, and this will be a special show after he recently mentioned Minnesota and First Ave. in a song about his dreams as an up and comer in the rap scene. The buzz around the young artist is even bigger now after this, and his show at the Palace Theater on Nov. 2 is going to be wild. Minnesotans aren’t used to getting random shoutouts in pop culture so this has just amplified his loyalty in the area.
Be sure to check out the ticket sales for these shows, and enjoy what the Minneapolis music scene has to offer, and continue to look towards the spring and summer as more shows will start to appear at Target Field as well.
