In the Arena, 11/14

14 Nov


Well, Sheena already scooped my big news for this week.  Those intrepid reporters at the Journal don’t let anything past them!  Yes, Jeff Dunham is bringing his show (featuring Walter, Achmed, and all those other zany characters) to Tupelo in February.  In these uncertain economic times, who doesn’t need a good laugh to break the tension?  Tickets will go on sale next Friday, November 21, at 10 a.m. through the usual Arena ticket outlets.

As for other events, we are indeed hosting the first ever collegiate ice hockey game to be played in the state of Mississippi tonight (Friday) and tomorrow (Saturday).  The inaugural season of the MSU Ice Hockey Bulldogs will make their only home stand of the season versus Loyola of New Orleans.  Tickets are only $5 and will be available at the door.  Doors open at 6 p.m. Friday and 6:30 p.m. Saturday with games to follow one hour later.

Since we have ice on the arena floor, we thought that public skating would be a good idea.  Not only do we have open skating for the next three weekends, we have new (well, new to us anyway) skates for rent!  Check our website ( for specific times.  Prices are $7 per person per session and include skate rental.

On another front, did anyone see Carrie Underwood hosting the CMA awards on Wednesday night?  Good seats still remain for her concert on Tuesday, December 9.

That’s all for this week.  Until next time…

    i got a question… i got the presale password for the jeff dunham tickets and my question is “do they start from a certain section on presale and work their way back?” “do they save the first so many rows for the day the tickets go on sale to the public?” because i was right the money at 10:00 this morning when the pre-sale started and 5th row was the best i could get and 4th row on the risers was the best i could get.. just wondering..

    presales typically start with a certain row (sometimes row 2, sometimes row 5, it depends on the artist) and sell every other row thereafter. At least half of the house including the front row is held back for the general onsale.
