MINNEAPOLIS (CelebrityAccess) –Live Nation has today (Aug. 8) unveiled its plans for The Fillmore Minneapolis music hall, which it says will be one of the most beautiful venues in the United States.
The 36,000-square-foot, 1,850-person capacity venue will pay tribute to both the roots of the Minneapolis music scene and to one of the most legendary music halls in the history of rock. The concert venue, next to Target Field Station at 521 N. 5th Street in Minneapolis, is slated to open for shows in February 2020.
According to an official press release, the venue will be jam-packed with Fillmore nostalgia from the original San Francisco venue including those signature Fillmore red velvet drapes, a wood dance floor, murals, and chandeliers. The venue’s mezzanine level will feature Box Seats and premium tickets, custom artwork paying homage to Prince, and the luxurious BG’s Lounge, named for legendary Fillmore promoter Bill Graham.
“The Fillmore Minneapolis will be a redefined concert experience for the Twin Cities, and we’re thrilled to unveil this unmatched venue right next to Target Field near downtown in the North Loop,” said Ron Bension, president, Live Nation’s Clubs & Theaters division. “At every Fillmore we welcome our guests to make a night of it, not just with our incredible lineup of world-class performers, but also with delicious food, inventive cocktails and craft beers.”
Joining San Francisco; New Orleans; Philadelphia; Denver; Detroit; Miami; Charlotte, NC; and Silver Spring, MD., The Minneapolis Fillmore will be the 10th one in the country. The concert venue will be paired with a restaurant, Trax Burgers and Bar, slated to open in mid-February and an Element by Westin Hotel, which will open early 2020.
Minneapolis talent buyer Tamsen Preston will book for the state-of-the-art venue, which plans to host 175 concerts and events per year.
The Fillmore Minneapolis is being built in partnership with United Properties. For more visit fillmoreminneapolis.com
