I'll be there! Fell in love with Minneapolis when I went for the Stones in 2015. Booked a room at Sheraton Midtown for $318 for two nights.

Any Dylan fans here? The 8-day Duluth Dylan Fest (2 hrs' drive north of Minneapolis) begins on show day.

Looking forward to checking out Minneapolis. Never been there before and have allowed two days at this stop. Can any locals give us some hints of things to do, places to catch some good music etc

I'll likely stay at the Canopy by Hilton, not far from the venue and a reasonable price. The Minneapolis stay will be shortest stop on my four-show mini tour. (SD to NSH).

Topi, it sounds like you're doing a similar itinerary as us. We leave New Zealand on 7th and overnight in LA. Then onto SD from 8-11, Vancouver 11-15, Minn 15-17, Nashville 17-22 then home.

Staying at Hyatt Place Downtown which I think is close to the stadium.

I grew up in Minneapolis but haven't spent very much time there in my adult life other than coming home for holidays and little trips...so I'm not so good for places to catch music, beyond the almighty First Avenue nightclub. I've seen many great shows there over the years, and it is immortalized in "Purple Rain" if you happened to be a Prince fan. The exterior walls are painted with many of the greats who have performed at the venue. Otherwise, if you are a Bob Dylan fan you could check out Dinkytown (near University of Minnesota) where Mr. Zimmerman evidently first started calling himself Mr. Dylan, or even take the two hour drive north to the Duluth/Hibbing area where he grew up.

As for non-music stuff, the sculpture garden at the Walker Art Center comes to mind, with the famous giant spoon and cherry, or walks/views along the Mississippi River, or enjoying the many lake trails around the area...Lake Harriet in particular has a small bandshell where concerts are often performed along the water...oops I slipped back into music!

Hot damn, I'm in!

It'll be my 23rd Stones show. My 1st Stones show back in '89 was also in Minneapolis...fitting, especially if this ends up being "The Last Time".

useful site with downloadable maps of Minneapolis:

https://www.minneapolis.org/map-transportation/maps/

The Blue Line of the Metro goes from the Airport into downtown and even has a stop by the venue (U.S. Bank Stadium), only 20 min. :-)

Has anyone ever seen a show at US Bank Stadium?

Ever since it opened in 2016, it seems there have been near constant complaints about the sound at US Bank. A great place for football, evidently not so great for concerts.

I hear that the glass is to blame. There is a lot of glass including angled glass walls that bounce sound around in strange ways.

From the what I've read, the advice is to try and sit as low as possible and as near the stage as possible...so basically the really expensive seats! I have seats in section C4 which I hope isn't too high or too far away. The HHH Metrodome was never a great place for shows either, but it sounds like this may be worse. At least with the Metronome, the canvas absorbed somewhat. Not so much with the all the glass at US Bank, I'm told.

Has anyone had good/bad experiences of their own at US Bank Stadium or know if Section C4 is OK for concerts?
