Lil Wayne, Keri Hilson, Far East Movement, Rick Ross and Lloyd coming to Xcel August 9
It seems like pretty much every pop star on the Top 40 charts is planning to make their way to the Twin Cities this summer to play one of our two arenas, and this new date comprises a handful of high-profile stars: Lil Wayne will steer his tour toward St. Paul's Xcel Energy Center on August 9 with Keri Hilson, the Far East Movement, Rick Ross, and Lloyd in tow.
Lil Wayne will be at the X on the same night that Sade will perform at the Target Center in Minneapolis, making it the first time in recent memory that pop acts will fill both arenas simultaneously.

May 21: Usher at the Target Center
June 14-15: Taylor Swift at the Xcel
June 16: Rihanna at the Target Center
