Mystic Lake slashes prices, loses one act in Super Bowl concert mix

After Mystic Lake’s ambitious Club Nomadic concert series for Super Bowl revelers abruptly fell apart last week, the leftover pieces have fallen into place – although one of the acts has fallen off the calendar altogether.

Prices for all the shows have been slashed except one, Florida Georgia Line’s Feb. 3 performance. However, electropop singer Ellie Goulding has cancelled her Feb. 2 appearance, leaving her co-headliner Kygo (a Norwegian dance DJ) to perform solo that night.

For fans who paid the full $125-$200 prices to get inside the now-shelved Club Nomadic entertainment compound, Mystic Lake is offering a slightly oxymoronic-sounding “premium general admission experience” if they hold onto their tickets. Otherwise, refunds to all the concerts are being offered, and cheaper tickets to the three shows besides FGL are now on sale, along with new VIP options. Contact the Mystic Lake box office at 952-496-6563, visit mysticlake.com or Ticketmaster.com.

The three newly discounted performances – the Chainsmokers, Kygo and Gwen Stefani – are moving into Mystic Lake Center, where meetings and weddings are held. FGL is the only gig being moved into the Mystic Showroom, where concerts are typically held.

These shows are no longer affilliated with Nomadic Entertainment, the NFL-affiliated company that – as far as we know – are still putting on the Nomadic Live series at the Armory, although Nomadic and Armory representatives have not responded to requests for more information on those events.

Here are the show-by-show details at Mystic Lake according to their press release:

Jack White, David Byrne announce rare Minneapolis concert dates

Two revered rockers who’ve been relatively stingy with Twin Cities appearances over the past decade each announced new Minneapolis dates Tuesday:

JACK WHITE (Aug. 6, Armory): The White Stripes frontman’s first-ever full-fledged solo show in Minnesota is also one of the first post-Super Bowl concerts to be announced at the newly remodeled Armory in downtown Minneapolis. Tickets are $70 for general admission and go on sale Jan. 26 at 10 a.m., but buyers should sign up for the Verified Fan program in the meantime.

White is hitting the road to tout his third solo album, “Boarding House Reach,” due March 23, the first single from which he just released last week (posted below). Aside from a short appearance on “A Prairie Home Companion” with Chris Thile in 2016, he hasn’t performed in town since a (stellar) 2010 First Ave show by the Dead Weather, a side band fronted by the Kills’ Alison Mosshart. He also played with the Raconteurs in the interim, but you’d have to go all the way back to the White Stripes’ 2005 shows at the Orpheum for the last time he played his most classic tunes, which he did on prior solo tours.

DAVID BYRNE (May 17, Orpheum Theatre): Not counting his colorful 2012 appearance at the State Theatre with St. Vincent, the former Talking Heads bandleader hasn’t done a concert on his own in town since his prior State gig in 2008. This time out, he’s planning to bring a 12-piece band and what sounds like an ambitious production in support of his new album, “America Utopia” (March 9) -- amounting to a higher price-tag for fans. Tickets will be $62-$184 and go on sale Friday at 10 a.m. via Ticketmaster and the State Theatre box office.

Bryne, 65, is pledging to play his “classics” on the tour and called it “the most ambitious show I’ve done since the shows that were filmed for ‘Stop Making Sense.' ” That certainly sounds promising.
