Best Seats to Choose at Xcel Energy Center

We recommend you avoid the seats behind the stages unless your purpose is just to get into the complex. Avoid the in/near or above sections Section 120, 121, 122, and Section 123. The show is completely blocked from these places.

Consider purchasing the following seats to enjoy the events to the fullest:

Club Level Seats: Club Seats offer one of the best experiences at the Center. The guests are greeted with excellent views, shorter lines, and an upscale environment.

The fans are provided access to the club-only concourse with its multiple bars, private restrooms, and exclusive food stations.

On the Glass Seats: If you're going for a Minnesota Wild game, consider this to enjoy every little moment of the ice. Patrons purchasing the first-row seats of the 100-level receive complimentary beer, wine, soda, gourmet entrees, and desserts.

There are fewer than 200 such exclusive seats available per game

On the Floor: Floor sections of the center, left, and right offer some of the closest views of the stage. Floor sections may be added or removed during different concerts. The adjustments are made performer-specific which alters the floor layout.
