Live Nation has announced plans to build the Fillmore Minneapolis, scheduled to open in February 2020. The concert venue will be situated next to Target Field Station at 521 N. 5th Street in Minneapolis.
The 36,000-square-foot, 1,850-person capacity Fillmore Minneapolis plans to host 175 concerts and events per year. Minneapolis talent buyer Tamsen Preston will book for The Fillmore Minneapolis whose music initial lineup announcement is scheduled for October.
“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 Live Nation’s Clubs & Theaters division president Ron Bension. “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.”
The Fillmore Minneapolis music hall, VIP lounge and private box seats feature thoughtful design elements, including Fillmore nostalgia from the original San Francisco venue, traditional signature Fillmore red velvet drapes, a wood dance floor, murals, chandeliers and other local Minneapolis features. Box seats and premium tickets are on the venue’s mezzanine level, featuring custom artwork paying homage to Prince.
On the mezzanine level will be the luxurious BG’s Lounge, named for legendary Fillmore promoter Bill Graham, showcasing framed Fillmore posters featuring Minnesota artists and bands who have played at The Fillmore music venues.
The Minneapolis Fillmore will be the 10th in the country.
The Fillmore Minneapolis is being built in partnership with United Properties.
