In the Arena, 8/8

7 Aug

BY TODD HUNT

BIG CONCERT ANNOUNCEMENT!!! Did that get your attention? Well, I wish I could tell you who’s coming to the Arena but we’ve been sworn to secrecy until next Tuesday. For some of you, this act will mean nothing. For others, I hope it means quite a lot. But if you want to be one of the first to know who’s coming, make sure you sign up for our email blast by entering your email address here.

Now for events we can discuss:

SOMMORE with special guest DON “DC” CURRY will be performing tonight (Friday, August 8th) with good seats still available. Next weekend we have STAIND, HINDER and THEORY OF A DEADMAN performing on Saturday. Other upcoming events include Disney Live’s WINNE THE POOH stage show on September 26 and CARRIE UNDERWOOD on December 9.

One thing I can tell you is that Weezer is not the big concert announcement for next week. This is quite distressing to my oldest and youngest children, not to mention their parents. Looks like we’ll be driving to Atlanta if we want to see the show. Maybe there will be some dates added down the road a little closer to home. A concert here would be even better! Maybe I should talk to someone about that…

Until next time,

Todd

    Weezer would be awesome.. i have been wanting to see them live ever since i heard their blue and green album… and their dvd is a great one.. i need to add it to my collection… i don’t like atlanta or i would drive out there and see that… like you said hopefully there will be a closer date down the road for them.. maybe Nashville or Memphis or Tupelo would be off the hook…

    Will Disney on Ice be coming back this year? If so what will the show be this year?

    Hey jpb,

    I’ve got the info about the guitar at work..unfortunately I won’t return to work until Sunday. If I remember correctly, you can buy a chance at Tupelo Consignment Music, and they’ll give it away Aug. 18, and you don’t have to be present to win. I’ll let you know more Sunday.

    Hmm Kellie Picker/Sugarland has been on pollstar for a while and is on the BCS website now I see.

    The Romantics is on Pollstar too but surely this isn’t the BIG announcement??
