In the Arena, 6/20

19 Jun

BY TODD HUNT


So the circus is in town this weekend. I really wanted to say we have lions, tigers, and bears (oh my!), but we only have tigers and elephants on the lot. We’ll be hosting six shows over the weekend (7 p.m. Thursday & Friday; 11 a.m., 3 p.m., & 7 p.m. Saturday; and 1 p.m. Sunday) so come check it out!

Well, I promised a show announcement this week and here it is. From the same promoter that brought in Rickey Smiley, we will be bringing in the “Dream Team of Comedy” featuring Sommore and Don “DC” Curry on Friday, August 8. Tickets are $37 and $27 in advance and will go on sale next Friday, June 27, at 10 a.m.

Next weekend we’ll also have Carrie Underwood and Little Big Town on sale starting Saturday, June 28 at 10 a.m. Tickets are $47.75 and $37.75 and the show is Tuesday, December 9, at 7:30 p.m.

We have one more concert announcement but I am contractually prevented from talking about it until today (June 20) at 5 p.m. I can tell you that it is not country, R&B, comedy, or polka (though that’s a thought!). Stay tuned to the blog to find out more about this show.

Speaking of concert announcements, I plan on going into detail about just how they happen. The nature of concert announcements (much like the record business) hasn’t quite changed as quickly as society has in terms of new media. Look for more information on this topic in the coming weeks.

OK, time to get back to the elephants. We’ve got to make sure everything is in order for the shows. Hope to see you in the arena this weekend. I’ll be the clown without makeup…

Until next time,

Todd
