The Fillmore Minneapolis Music Hall

Brandi Carlile will be the opening act at Minneapolis' new concert venue, The Fillmore, it was announced on Tuesday.

The Grammy winner will play three nights at the venue over Valentine's Day weekend, Feb. 12-14, with each show a different animal.

The first will see her perform as part of a trio, the next night she'll be joined by a full band, and on the final night she'll be playing her love-themed 2010 EP "XOBC."

Carlile was last in Minnesota for the Minnesota State Fair, when she played as part of the Grandstand Concert Series.

She's among several acts announced for the new venue, which has been built as part of a mixed-use development adjacent to Target Field in the Minneapolis North Loop, which also includes a Westin hotel.

Other acts announced for the first few months after the venue's opening include Buddy Guy, Evanescence, Jonny Lang, the Revivalists, Motion City Soundtrack, Three 6 Mafia, Ty Dolla $ign, Yung Gravy and Rüfüs Du Sol.

Live Nation's new 1,850-capacity venue is aiming to compete with First Avenue, with the concert promoter and booker taking a potshot at the legendary venue in August, saying The Fillmore is "not just a black box with people in it."
