Chesney, McGraw To Perform 1st Target Field Concert

MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Two country music acts will be the first to perform a concert at Target Field next summer.

Kenny Chesney and Tim McGraw are bringing the ‘Brothers of the Sun’ tour to Target Field on July 8, 2012.

The Minnesota Twins made the announcement on Monday morning saying that the first-ever concert at Target Field is a part of Chesney and McGraw’s 18-date stadium tour across the country.

“The Twins are thrilled to have country music legends Kenny Chesney and Tim McGraw headlining the first-ever concert at Target Field,” said Dave St. Peter, Twins President. “We expect this will be the first of many concerts at Target Field, which we have long believed can become the best outdoor music venue in the region.”

Additional details and information on ticket pricing and on-sale dates will be released in the coming weeks, but it sounds like season ticket holders will get the first shot at purchases.

      YEah, good for Target field. I’ve been worried about it. I want good things for it. Awesome-o.

    I think they should work on getting the AMA motocross and FMF Freestyle in there, always a massive draw at other stadiums and maybe the top level Sno-cross champ. i mean this is Minnesota, the home of Polaris and Artic Cat

    This will be a complete sell out. Will bring in a lot of visitors to the Downtown area. Win, win situation for all concerned. Probably won’t need a lot of security w/ the country crowd.
