Target Center Introduction

Located in central Minneapolis, the Target Center is a leading arena and hosts big-name concerts, family shows, and sporting events. Basketball fans know it as the home of the NBA's Minnesota Timberwolves. Opened in 1990, it can hold up to 20,500 people and has put on major concerts from acts such as U2, Elton John, and Paul McCartney. The Target Center is just across the street from Target Field, which is the home turf of Major League Baseball's Minnesota Twins, as well as a large entertainment complex. Both venues share the same public parking area.
