The State Theatre was opened in 1921 and at the time was considered the most technologically advanced in the United States. The theatre has a seating capacity of 2,181 and was designed by Chicago architect J.E.O. Pridmore in a free Italian Renaissance style. Between 1921 and 1978, the State Theatre was mainly a movie house, although vaudeville acts played there, as well as concerts and ballets. The State Theatre was bought in 1989 by Minneapolis Community Development Agency, and after nearly two years of renovation, the theatre re-opened in November 1991, showing plays and musicals.

R5 & Ryland

March 11, 2016

2015 sees the release of R5's eagerly anticipated second album Sometime Last Night. After months of waiting, with the record being pushed back multiple times because the band wanted to "get it right", fans got their first taste of the record with lead single Smile. A fuzzy pop concoction, it was followed up by stellar singles Let's Not Be Alone Tonight and All Night.

The Mavericks

March 19, 2016

Get ready to swing to the Rockabilly, Tex Mex and Neotraditional Country styling of one of the most original and eclectic bands of the last quarter century - The Mavericks are back! The Grammy Award-winning innovators fuse their Latino roots with a vintage Country flair that culminates in a sound so diverse yet so distinctively theirs; genres are ingeniously blurred but the band's energy never waivers, consistently drawing crowds to their high-octane, sold out shows.

Riverdance

March 25-27, 2016

20 years after Riverdance first took the world's breath away with its explosive combination of traditional Irish music and dance, Michael Flatley's fine footwork continues to evolve, captivating audiences from East to West as its fan base grows steadily. This remarkable progression now culminates in a 20th Anniversary World Tour, heralding the company's triumphant return to the world stage.

Dream Theater

May 1, 2016

Never a band to skimp on ambition, Dream Theater's latest record is a sprawling concept album, running to 34 tracks. Spread over two 'Acts', The Astonishing tells the story of a band of rebels trying to overthrow an oppressive force. Lead guitarist Joh Petruci has revealed the band may well think about turning it into a Broadway show in the future, but for now they'll be playing it in its entirety live on this tour.

Tony Bennett

May 6, 2016

Bennett staged a huge comeback in the late 1980s and 1990s, opening his music up to a younger generation while keeping his musical style intact. He remains a popular and critically praised recording artist and concert performer. His latest record, Cheek to Cheek, was a collection of duets with Lady Gaga.
