Live Nation has officially announced plans to build the Fillmore Minneapolis, scheduled to open in February 2020. The concert venue will stand next to Target Field Station on 5th Street.
The 36,000-square-foot, 1,850-person capacity space plans to host 175 concerts and events per year. Local talent buyer Tamsen Preston will book for The Fillmore Minneapolis whose initial music lineup is currently 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 music hall, VIP lounge and private box seats feature thoughtful design elements, including nostalgia from the original San Francisco venue, traditional signature Fillmore red velvet drapes, a wood dance floor, murals, chandeliers and other local Minneapolis-specific features. They took an extra step by adding custom artwork paying homage to the city’s native artist Prince.
