My buddy was downtown Saint Paul yesterday and noticed that Ticket King is going to have a location right across the street from the Xcel Energy Center. It is a few doors down from the Eagle Street Grille which is on the corner of 7th. and Kellogg. They must have high hopes for the walk up traffic because I am sure that the rent can't be cheap in such a prime location.

Just when I thought the Minnesota Timberwolves couldn't cheapen their product more than they already have, my buddy told me that they are offering Minnesota Timberwolves Season Tickets in the lower level for only $500.00. That works out to just over $10/Ticket for a Timberwolves Ticket in the 100 Level. The Minnesota Timberwolves have taken desperation to a whole new level. It is going to be very difficult for them to pretend that their is any demand for their product when they are practically giving away lower level season tickets. I can't imagine how they could lower the price more. Maybe down the road they will actually pay us to come to their games?

I called up the guy that I know at Ticket King to get the story on Prince Tickets at the Target Center. He explained to me that there is tons of demand and that there are people from all over the country coming to Minneapolis for the show. I guess that this is his only scheduled show and if you dig Prince, Minneapolis is your only option. I was wrong when I wrote in my Target Center Blog that he would probably play multiple shows. At this point, I would be extremely surprised if there were multiple shows. If you get into Prince and his "freak" show, buy tickets now because they aren't going down in price.

The Minnesota State Fair concert lineup just go a lot better with the addition of Black Eyed Peas star Fergie on 8/25. Tickets to this show went on sale on Saturday and it appears as though you will have to deal with a ticket broker if you want to sit in good seats at the Minnesota State Fair Grandstand. Remember, it is important to sit in Plaza One in order to really get a good view of the stage. Most of the off center Plaza sections are too much of a side view. Also, I recently read that the Minnesota State Fair is going to switch to full strength beer. So log onto your favorite online ticket site to snap up some Minnesota State Fair Tickets to see Fergie and enjoy the Pronto Pups and beer.

This weekend the Minnesota Twins take on the Washington Nationals at the Metrodome in the start of inter league play. They have scheduled games on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. It looks like there is plenty of ticket demand for this series as a whole with Twins Tickets to the game on Saturday being especially tough to find. If the Minnesota Twins win the series this week against the Anaheim Angels, I am sure that the ticket prices will go up on this as well as the rest of inter league play at the HHH Metrodome.

I was driving downtown Minneapolis tonight and I noticed a "Coming Soon" sign for Ticket King, a long time Minnesota Ticket Broker, on the corner of Washington Avenue South and Chicago. It really seems like a logical place in Minneapolis to open a Ticket Broker office. The location is only a few blocks from the Metrodome and less than a couple of miles from the Target Center. I am curious to go downtown Saint Paul to see if there are any similar signs on any buildings there. It is nice to know that before too long, I will be able to simply go to the corner of Washington and Chicago to legally buy my tickets.
