On our way to the 5pm performance of ‘Cirque du Soleil’ “OVO”, Verizon Arena, Manchester, on Sunday, we swung by BestBuy, Concord, and picked up the Nikon P900 I had ordered by phone (with the store) yesterday.

They were not busy and there were no lines at ‘Customer Service’. Took them a few minutes to find the box but it was very smooth. There is NOTHING sealed in the box! That really upsets me. But it looks all brand new. I am charging it right. Though I got 4 spare ’01’ batteries for it, I want to start off using the Nikon supplied battery and also charge the internal clock battery. I am not in a hurry. Tomorrow will do for the first shots.

Quite a hefty camera. But it fits in my hand well. Like the weight. So far so good.

I like BestBuy — especially the Concord store. I worked there for a few months, as an Epson ‘brand ambassador’ a few years ago and loved it. Great people. But only saw two people from my time there. Buying electronics from BestBuy could be an option (despite my status as an Amazon shareholder).

‘Cirque du Soleil’ “OVO”, Verizon Arena, Manchester, August 28, 2016 — Beyond Incredible.

This was the 4th ‘Cirque du Soleil‘ we have seen (on stage). The others having been ‘Mystere‘ (in Vegas in 2012), ‘Dralion‘ also in 2012 in Manchester, and ‘Varekai‘ in 2014, again in Manchester. We like ‘Cirque du Soleil’ shows (despite the costs) — they are quite the experience.

‘Ovo’ had 5 BEYOND incredible, only possible with ‘Cirque du Soleil’, acts.

They were the: synchronized juggling by the ‘Amazing Ants’, trapeze without the swings, tightrope HAND WALKING, the mindbogglingly CUTE ‘slinky’ and a mesmerizing Diabolo Chinese spinning-top Yo-Yo juggling routine. These were, as they were probably meant to be, WORLD CLASS.

Most INCREDIBLE circus act I have EVER SEEN and I am a veteran of 70 or 80 circuses, including the “Moscow Circus” in Moscow. I would pay $100 to just see this!

So, so clever. The ‘creatura’ SLINKY. You have to see it.

Doing trapeze without swings is something else. Very dramatic.

Tightrope walking is one thing, but walking on your hands on a tightrope is a whole different matter. This was an amazing display of strength, agility and skill.

The synchronized juggling made the recent synchronized swimming at the Rio Olympics look childish!

These 5 acts just took the show over the top.

There were other great acts too — like the now copied by others — walking the vertical wall act.

The acrobatics, as ever, were in a class of their own and the music, again, as ever, was superb. Yes, we bought the CD (and the Program (as we invariably do). They don’t sell DVDs.

Amazing. Amazing. Amazing.

Just INCREDIBLE.

Also incredible that the arena, at best, was only 1/2 full. Yes, we went to what is always the least attended of the shows. That is why we go. Easier to get good tickets and we had outstanding seats. Basically the same ones we get each year to see “Barnum and Bailey” — but these costs 4.5x times more! But am not complaining. And neither was Deanna who often complains that I pay too much for tickets. She loved the show. But I think ‘Cirque du Soleil’ is too expensive and too ‘fancy’ for the New Hampshire crowd. Just worry that they will stop coming to Manchester. That would be a shame.

So yes there will be two circuses at the ‘Verizon Arena‘, Manchester, New Hampshire, this Summer.

Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey” (which in the past has been in October) — and their last show in NH with elephants — with ‘Circus Xtreme‘ will be here May 5 – 8, 2016.

“Cirque du Soleil” with ‘OVO’ will be here August 25 – 28, 2016.

Well we have not missed a “Ringling Brothers” circus at the Verizon in 8 years and as of 2012 have been trying to see as many “Cirque du Soleil” performances as we can. Saw “Dralion” in 2012 at the Verizon and “Varekai” in 2014 also at the Verizon. Also saw “Mystere” in 2012 but that was in Las Vegas. So this will be our 4th Cirque and the 3rd in Manchester.
