U.S. Bank Stadium official says issues during 1st concert are temporary

- It was a big night at U.S. Bank Stadium on Friday. Thousands of people came out for the first concert at the new facility featuring country superstar Luke Bryan. Despite the excitement, many came away singing a sad tune about their experience. 

Many fans say they ran into issues ranging from long lines to food and drinks running out. That's raising concerns there could be even more problems Saturday night as Metallica takes the stage.

On Twitter, fans complained about confusion getting to their seats. One fan even tweeting about what they thought was a leaky ceiling.

Stadium officials say most of the issues have easy explanations.

"The leak in the bathroom actually wasn't a leak in the bathroom. There was a pallet of ice that had been set next to a concession stand," Michele Kelm-Helgen with Minnesota Sports Facilities Authority said.

From melting ice to fans just adjusting to a new venue the problems they say are only temporary.

"There was some confusion getting to will call. We are doing better signage," Kelm-Helgen said.

Better signage and one concert under their belt should make Saturday's event a little bit easier. Metallica fans certainly have high expectations..

According to Luke Bryan, if there's one thing the stadium defiantly got right, it's the sound..

"He liked the way it sounded and so did the promoter. They said it was great," Kelm-Helgen said.
