MINNEAPOLIS — This summer, Target Field is trading its bases for bass guitars and home runs for hit singles.
On July 14 and 15, the Minnesota Twins' downtown home field will play host to the first-ever TC Summer Fest, a two-night rock concert series headlined by The Killers and Imagine Dragons.
Other big names on the festival lineup include The Flaming Lips, Death Cab for Cutie, Cannons, Chelsea Cutler, Em Beihold and Talk.
The band AJR was originally slated to perform Saturday night, but pulled out of the show and all of their July performances due to family health issues.
Tickets for the shows go on sale at 10 a.m. on Friday, May 5 via twins.com/TCSummerFest. Attendees can buy single-day tickets for the Friday and Saturday shows, or a two-day pass that gets you inside the gates for the entire concert series.
TC Summer Fest, hosted by the Minnesota Twins and 555 Events, "is not just another stadium concert," organizers say -- the two-day series will have "giveaways, VIP experiences, ticket upgrades, and sponsor activities."
The downtown concert is the latest show added to a busy summer and fall in the Twin Cities.
