In the Arena, 1/9

9 Jan


Happy New Year! Happy Elvis Day! Happy Anniversary! Wait, that last one was just for Melissa! I knew that getting married on Elvis’ birthday would have a special significance. Of course I didn’t know that it would mean living in Tupelo at the time, but life can be funny like that…

I hope that each of you had a wonderful holiday season. The arena was intentionally quiet as we took some time to recharge our batteries. 2008 was one of our busiest years ever and we are looking forward to another great year in 2009.

Our first event of the new year is Cirque du Soleil’s “Saltimbanco”. It’s quite different than anything we’re ever hosted in the past and promises to be a most exciting event. Shows run January 8-11 and we hope to see you at a performance.

If Cirque isn’t quite your cup of tea, we have three diverse shows visiting in February. WWE Smackdown is slated for February 2, new metal rockers Disturbed perform February 10, and comedian/ventriloquist Jeff Dunham (Walter, Achmed, Jalapeno on a Stick, etc.) comes to town February 18. How’s that for different?

If you haven’t done so already, please visit our new and improved website ( We have links to our Facebook group and our mailing list available, as well as a detailed calendar of events. There’s even a place for you to suggest future acts to us. Check it out!

That’s all for today. I’m being summoned to the arena. Maybe Cirque needs another trapeze artist! I think I’m better suited to being a clown, though…


Until next time,
