ARMORY COMMANDER: LIVE NATION

Live Nation is booking and programming Minneapolis’s newest entertainment venue, The Armory, beginning with a Slayer show on 5/24.

The hall reopened in December—and held Super Bowl-related events in January—after an extensive renovation that included a scalable floor plan to accommodate a variety of events. The venue, which has a capacity of 8,400, is open to all promoters.

“The Twin Cities has been lacking a great mid-size hall and the Armory fills that gap perfectly,” said Jason Wright, President of Live Nation Midwest.  “With sight lines and amenities that are unmatched in the Midwest, music fans will marvel when they see a show in this space.”

The Armory has been around since the 1930s and been used in videos for Prince’s “1999” and Aerosmith’s “I Don’t Want To Miss A Thing.” It was also the place where Elgin Baylor first played for the Lakers.

The initial lineup includes shows by Dua Lipa on 6/24, Greta Van Fleet on 7/3 and 5 Seconds of Summer on 9/9. No word yet on who gets the booyah concession stand.
