Minneapolis will play host to ESPN’s Summer X Games for the third year in a row next August, and once again organizers will give attendees a sporty mix of electronic, hip-hop and rock concerts as a side-show attraction.
Hitmaking Los Angeles DJ/producer Diplo of Major Lazer notoriety, legendary New York rap crew Wu-Tang Clan (who were worth every last dolla, dolla bill paid to get them to Soundset in May), late-‘90s soft-metal band Incubus and a new group featuring two Foo Fighters, Chevy Metal, will top out the X Games 2019 summer concerts. The shows will take place Aug. 1-4 at the Armory, just across Commons Park from U.S. Bank Stadium where the games are held.
As in past years, tickets are available separately for the concerts starting as low as $20, or they can be bought in bundled packages with the games themselves. Go to xgames.com/tickets for more info.
