In the Arena, 4/18

17 Apr

BY TODD HUNT

As I mentioned last week, we did indeed have a show announcement over the past few days.

Soulja Boy will be in the house on May 15 with special guests Lil Mama and Lil Josh as part of the Scream Bash concert.  Tickets go on sale Saturday, April 19 at 1 p.m. through all of the usual Arena ticket outlets.

As I write this, the operations staff of the building is finishing the changeover from this week’s Eastern Star convention to our arena football setup.  We hosted 900 conference attendees from across the state Monday- Wednesday in the arena and are expecting a crowd of 3,000-plus this Saturday night when the undefeated Mississippi Mudcats kick off their game versus the Carolina Speed at 7 p.m.  The Mudcats are leading the AIFA Western Conference’s South division and are one of only two undefeated teams in the entire league.  Don’t miss your chance to see one of the best teams in indoor football this weekend.

Be on the lookout for more event announcements in the coming weeks.  We’re working on a couple of family shows for summer and early fall along with at least one comedy show for the summer.  We’ve had lots of calls about other shows but aren’t to the point where we can start dropping hints as of yet.  Hopefully we can start talking these shows up soon.

Until next week,

Todd

    i think the Soulja Boy show will bring in really good sales… also Todd.. just got a text that TNA wrestling ppv is coming to the area for their June ppv, Slammiversary.. they are coming to the Desoto County Civic Center in Southaven. So they may do some house show runs through this area….
