U.S. Bank Stadium is 90 percent constructed and it's still on schedule to open to the public in August, the Vikings announced Tuesday.

Getting a sneak preview of what this billion-dollar glass palace has to offer was Go96.3 morning host Dana Wessel, who put together this quick review (he was impressed by the bathrooms).

According to the Star Tribune, Tuesday's tour took place moments after an announcement of a resolution with the state over $15 million in disputed stadium costs.

Minnesota Sports Facilities Authority Chair Michele Kelm-Helgen told reporters she expects the board to vote on the settlement during their regularly scheduled meeting Friday.

The debut act at U.S. Bank Stadium is set to be a Luke Bryan concert on Aug. 19. That could change with events potentially being added to the menu before mid-August, but no other events have officially been announced.
