New in Minneapolis: US Bank Stadium

New in Minneapolis: US Bank Stadium

The newest addition to the Minneapolis skyline is an enormous, angular blue building carving a wedge into the space once occupied by the Metrodome’s billowy roof.

Its street address is 900 South 5th Street, but you shouldn’t have to look very hard to find it. US Bank Stadium is a massive and imposing structure that’s very hard to miss, and is clearly visible to anyone approaching from I-35W and I-94.

Construction began in December of 2013 and the building opened to the public on July 22, 2016. It can seat 66,200 people for most events, but it will be expanded to seat 73,000 for special events such as Super Bowl LII in February of 2018.

In the meantime, a wide variety of events are already scheduled for the near future: A.C. Milan will take on Chelsea F.C in the stadium’s first event ever on August 3rd. On August 19th, country singer Luke Bryan will host the first concert at the new venue. If country isn’t your style, however, the heavy metal legends of Metallica will be performing  the following Saturday on August 20th.

You can watch a live stream and a time lapse of the stadium’s construction here.
