MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Members of the public will get a chance to peek inside the new home of the Minnesota Vikings before it opens up for events.

The Minnesota Sports Facilities Authority says an open house is planned at U.S. Bank Stadium on July 23 and July 24. Tickets are free, but they are not available yet.

Fans will have access to the new concourse, and they'll get to see the field, the new seats and some of the stadium's luxury amenities. Food vendors and family activities will also be on hand.

The open house is scheduled just a few weeks before the stadium begins hosting events. An International Cup soccer match will be the stadium's first athletic event on Aug. 3. Luke Bryan and Metallica concerts are planned later in August.
