All four feature tickets that go on sale this week or next week.
Publish date:
Hall & Oates

Promise: We won't hammer you with Nickelback puns in this story. Maybe a couple, but they're just a fraction of the value of the four major concerts announced Tuesday that are coming to Minnesota this summer. 

Hall & Oates - July 16, Xcel Energy Center

The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame duo of Daryl Hall and John Oates will headline at the X on July 16, with opening acts including pop-rock band Squeeze and singer-songwriter KT Tunstall.

Tickets for the general public go on sale this Friday, Jan. 24, at 10 a.m. via Ticketmaster, with pre-sale options already available. Prices have not been announced. 

Nickelback - August 6, Xcel Energy Center

The Canadian rockstars will be at the X in St. Paul for an Aug. 6 show also featuring the Stone Temple Pilots and Tyler Bryant and the Shakedown.

The All The Right Reasons tour tickets go on sale to the general public at 10 a.m. Thursday, Jan. 23, with pre-sale tickets available to Nickelback fan club members beginning 24 hours earlier. Prices have not been announced.

Nickelback was last in Minnesota for an outdoor show at the Treasure Island Amphitheater in July 2018. 

George Strait - August 22, U.S. Bank Stadium

The country music icon will perform in Minnesota for the first time since he performed his farewell tour at Target Center in 2013. He'll be joined at the Aug. 22 U.S. Bank Stadium show by Chris Stapleton and Little Big Town, making it one huge night of music for country fans. 

Tickets for the general public go on sale Friday, Jan. 31 at 10 a.m. through Ticketmaster. American Express cardholders can get tickets through a pre-sale beginning at 10 a.m. Friday, Jan. 24. 

Prices have yet to be announced, but tickets to the tour's shows in Kansas City and Wichita range anywhere from $93 to more than $1,000. 

Rammstein - August 30, U.S. Bank Stadium

Haven't heard of them. Neither had we, but City Pages has a good amount of ammo about just how big this metal band is in Germany. U.S. Bank Stadium will be one of their 10 stops during their first tour in North America, 

Again, these tickets are available to the general public at 10 a.m. Friday, Jan. 24. We don't know how much they cost. 

This video suggests there will be a lot of fire during the show...
