MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Target Field will host its first concert in the summer of 2012.
Country music stars Kenny Chesney and Tim McGraw will play the first-ever concert at Minnesota Twins' stadium on Sunday, July 8.
Chesney and McGraw call their tour 'Brothers of the Sun' and have scheduled 18 stops beginning June 2 in Tampa, Fla. Twins president Dave St. Peter says the club expects the Chesney-McGraw event will be the first of many concerts at Target Field.
St. Peter says the stadium could become the premiere outdoor music venue in the region.
The 39,500-seat ballpark was completed prior to Opening Day 2010 at a cost of $440 million.
