Just another venue for the "artsy fartsy" types. How about a new outdoor amphitheatre that will seat about 10,000-15,000 for us "salt of the earth" rockers! Without one, we are nothing but a "cold Omaha".

Get your "salt of the earth rockers" together and raise funds for an amphitheater. Us "artsy-fartsy" people enjoy our chamber music!

Arts should be 100% self sufficient. If not, then build the Vikings a new stadium.

If public funds are involved....there had better be public hearings and talk of getting the topic on the ballot. Can't have different rules for the Vikings.

Holy cats! 75 million for 1100 seats? That's 68k per seat. New vikings stadium = a billion for 73,000 seats or 13k per seat. "Arts" are even more expensive than "sports"!

NO NO NO NO state money should be used for this talk about a waste of money what 20k people use this in a year and bring pretty much no tax benefit to the state but a venue that would bring in at least 20mil a year in taxes no one wants what is wrong with you people.
