Win tickets to every October concert at Xcel Energy Center

Here's why the arena is giving away tickets to 10 events.

Why have an October when you could have a Rocktober?

Xcel Energy Center is about to tackle its busiest October concert schedule in the arena's history. Bob Dylan, Kings of Leon, and Arcade Fire are just a few of the artists hitting the stage next month. 

In celebration, the St. Paul arena launched a "Rocktober" sweepstakes on Monday. 

Up for grabs: a pair of tickets to 10 events in the month of October paired with $50 gift cards to 10 St. Paul restaurants.

That's every single concert (Enrique Iglesias and Pitbull, Chris Stapleton, Chris Tomlin, Imagine Dragons, Kings of Leon, Fall Out Boy, Bob Dylan, Thomas Rhett, and Arcade Fire) plus a hockey game (Minnesota Wild vs. Vancouver).

Plus $50 gift cards to:

  • Bonfire
  • Great Waters Brewing Company
  • The Happy Gnome
  • Herbie's On The Park
  • Highland Grill
  • Louis Ristorante & Bar
  • Pazzaluna

"We're gearing up for an incredible month here at Xcel Energy Center and the Rocktober promotion allows us to share that excitement with our fans," Xcel Energy Center Vice President and General Manager Jack Larson said in a news release

"We pride ourselves in delivering unique experiences and helping people create memories that last a lifetime. This is one more way for us to do that," Larson said.

The prize package has an estimated total retail value of $1,861.00.
