Fans have enjoyed the rare perk of free event parking at Infinite Energy Arena since its arrival in 2003.

But that changes on Feb. 1 when paid parking will be implemented at the Duluth compound.

For events, rates will range from $5-$10 (the Feb. 13 Andrea Bocelli and March 3 Post Malone concerts are both $10). The longstanding valet will be $25 (and free for Mercedes-Benz drivers). Parking rates will go into effect three hours prior to the start of the event and fees can only be paid by credit/debit card (as in, no cash accepted).

Those visiting for reasons other than an event will be granted two hours of free parking, then pay rates of $5 (2-12 hours) and $10 (12-24 hours).

Patrons are encouraged to pre-purchase parking at www.infiniteenergycenter.com or www.axs.com (check the "related links" under the event you plan to attend) and show a mobile version or printout of the pass. Parking fees – again, no cash – can also be paid on site.

In September, a new, 2,400 space parking deck opened on the Infinite Energy Center campus and LAZ Parking was enlisted for deck operations.
