In the Arena, 3/20


Thanks for your comments on last week’s Winter Jam idea. The reason I write this blog is to get different points of view than what those of us that work in the building have. We use the feedback to help us do a better job of scheduling our entertainment. So keep those comments coming!

I would also like to thank everyone who turned out for this past week’s Harlem Globetrotters event. Our attendance set a record for the Globetrotters in Tupelo! It’s nice to have good news to report in the midst of all of the doom and gloom of the economy.

This week we’re hosting the Mississippi Statewide Gymnastics meet Friday through Sunday. Don’t be surprised to see hundreds of gymnasts (along with their parents, grandparents, and siblings) around town this weekend. This event is open to the public with tickets available at the door.

Song of the week: “No No No” by Def Leppard. I would tell you to check it out on iTunes or Amazon, but for some reason (maybe greed?) their back catalog isn’t available. I’m sure Barb at Album Alley can sell you the cd. I’m going to date myself here, but I had it on 8-track back in the day. Thank goodness that format bit the dust. Nothing like having a song fade out in the middle while the tape switched from one track to another. And why was it called 8 track when there were only four sections? Did the left and right channels each count? Again, thank goodness for the demise of that awful format for music delivery.

Don’t forget Cats and Alan Jackson are both coming up next month. Ticket sales are brisk for both shows. Get yours today!

Until next time, Todd
