The Best Minnesota Rock Concerts Of 2017
We're definitely a little biased here, but I think that these concerts were so monumental that they deserve to be recognized - and they all happened this year.
I make no bones about the fact that I like to go to shows. My bank account doesn't like that, but I do. My husband does too. We've been lucky enough to see some amazing performances right here in Minnesota.
Here were some of our favorites. We're definitely open to submissions too! Don't forget that you can snag Northern Invasion 2018 (your next concert!) tickets here.
Halestorm at Mayo Civic Center
I did warn you and say we'd get biased here!
Our favorite Rochester concert moment had to be the Halestorm/Starset/New Years Day show back in September.
Guns N' Roses at U.S. Bank Stadium
It had been at least twenty years since Guns N' Roses set foot in Minnesota, and this summer, they changed that.
We didn't think they'd ever get back together - but they (semi) did. This was the first time we'd seen Slash, Duff and Axl share the stage in a while. We're happy they did it in Minnesota!
Ozzy Osbourne at Treasure Island
The best part about this one: HE BROUGHT ZAKK WYLDE WITH HIM.
In This Moment at Mayo Civic Center
Despite all of the bitching about how many costume changes Maria had - we were still thrilled that In This Moment decided to make a stop in Rochester this summer.
They brought Motionless In White and Vimic with them!
Tool in Minneapolis
The dark setting was impressive! LOVED the return of Tool to Minnesota. Get the recap here.
