With Bon Jovi, Shania Twain, Harry Styles, Charlie Puth, Justin Timberlake and Bruno Mars coming to the Xcel Energy Center this year and Ed Sheeran, Taylor Swift and Jay-Z and Beyonce (iconic, right?) coming to U.S. Bank Stadium, it’s pretty safe to say we’re not lacking in the concert department here in the Twin Cities. But what about the smaller venues and the up-and-coming artists? If you’re anything like me, my music/concert funds only allow me to spend breath-taking amounts of money on tickets maybe once a year. But the good news is that with our thriving music scene here in the Twin Cities, plenty of talented musicians come this way for more intimate concerts at venues such as First Avenue and 7th St. Entry, Varsity Theater, Cedar Cultural Center and Palace Theater—and the tickets to see them up close won’t cost you half your paycheck. Here are just 14 concerts (out of many) coming up in the next two months that you won’t want to miss.
