  • Target Field to Host its First Ever Postgame Concert

    Melissa Berman

    In its 13-year history, Target Field has hosted various events, from subzero hockey games to college football games and even weddings. Though Target Field has held 17 different concerts or music festivals, they have all occurred during Twins road trips or MLB offseason. This summer, for the first time, the Twins will be hosting a postgame concert, and it will be free for game-attending fans to watch.

    On August 4, following the Twins' 6:40 p.m. game vs. the Toronto Blue Jays, country music star Cole Swindell will be performing a full-length 75-minute concert for fans. The concert will begin about 15 minutes after the last pitch. Fans with a ticket to the game can stick around for the concert for free, or those wanting to get even closer to the action can buy a special ticket package that includes a Cole Swindell baseball cap, a ticket to the game, and a field access pass for the concert. All other fans will watch the concert from the stadium seats.

    “Twins baseball and country music on a summer evening at Target Field is a fantastic combination,” Twins President Dave St. Peter said in a statement.

    Swindell is not a newcomer to Target Field. He previously opened for country music superstar Kenny Chesney at his 2015 Target Field concert.

     Two of Swindell’s top hits include the songs “Chillin’ It” and “You Should Be Here.” His most recent album, “Stereotype,” debuted in April. 

    Those unable to make it to the concert aren’t totally out of luck for postgame shows- the Twins and St Paul Saints each host Fireworks Friday shows following every Friday home game during the summer.

    Target Field is an excellent concert venue, especially on a beautiful summer night.  This isn't my cup o' tea, but I'm sure for those that it is will enjoy it.

    I am interested to see how they end up doing everything as far as setup though.
