This is the place for big-ticket entertainment in the Twin Cities. Think Taylor Swift, Adele’s first American stop on her 2016 tour and Selena Gomez. It’s also home to Minnesota Wild Hockey, packing in 18,000 fans as players carve up the ice and shoot to score. Excel has frequently hosted the world’s top figure skaters, as well, as the main venue for the U.S. Figure Skating Championships and a stop for the Stars on Ice tour.
