Fine Line tickets

There have not been a lot of Fine Line tickets on sale lately. It just seems that there has not been a lot of national acts booked at the Fine Line lately. I think that a lot of shows normally booked at the Fine Line have been getting booked at the Cedar Cultural Center on the West Bank. I have said it before and I will say it again, the Fine Line is a frustrating place to see a show. It is a narrow building, it is nearly impossible to see the front of the stage (let alone be close to it) and when it is packed the pathway to the bar/bathroom area is impossible. It literally makes you want to run your head into a wall or just leave. I have left many a show there early because it is so uncomfortable.

Regardless, here are some upcoming shows at the Fine Line where you may need to buy Fine Line tickets ahead of time:

The Bangles: Thursday, April 29th

Butch Walker and the Black Widows: Friday, May 7th

Rocawear Fashion Show: Saturday, May 8th

The Buzzcocks: Monday, May 24th

The Heavy: Thursday, July 1st

Fine Line tickets for these shows and more are on sale now!

Lady Gaga tickets

Lady Gaga played at the Fine Line about a year and a half ago. Fine Line tickets for Lady Gaga were in such demand that they sold out freaky fast. Before that she was at KDWB's Jingle Ball, but I don't even think at that time "Poker Face" had been released. The Fine Line show was Lady Gaga's first headlining show in Minneapolis. For the Fine Line show, so many Fine Line tickets were sold that they even removed their tables for sightline seating to make room for more people. That is crazy! I don't know if the Fine Line has done that since!

Well times have changed. Lady Gaga is not playing one, but TWO SHOWS at the Xcel Energy Center this August. It will be a great way to bring in the end of the summer (AHHH! sad to write considering summer isn't even here yet) on August 30th and 31st. But wow, to go from a 600-800 person venue to selling 40,000 tickets is crazy. Absolutely crazy. Lady Gaga tickets Xcel Energy Center tickets are on sale now for the August 30th show (and is sold out) and the August 31st show goes on sale Saturday. I can't believe that - there are not a lot of artist that have been able to make this big of a leap in such a short amount of time!

Despite the hefty Xcel Energy Center ticket prices, I will still see you at the show - I can't miss this spectacle - it will blow the Black Eyed Peas out of the water.

The girl all your daughters want to see!
