Target Field Hosts Its 1st Concert With McGraw, Chesney

MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Thousands of country music fans have taken over downtown Minneapolis in anticipation of tonight’s first-ever concert at Target Field.

The Brothers of the Sun tour is a double-headliner of Tim McGraw and Kenny Chesney. The music starts around 4:30 p.m. and goes well into the night.

A sell-out crowd of 40,000 fans will pack the venue to see the country superstars.

The Twins shot a video of the field being transformed into a concert venue.

It took just about 90 hours to build the huge stage.

There are actually two identical stages used on the tour, so the guys can play concerts back-to-back nights in different cities.

The Twins expect to hold a concert or two each summer.
