Recently, Gavin DeGraw did a private show at Mohegan Sun. We ended up in the 3rd row of the lower level waaay in the back – which gave a good view of the whole venue. Unfortunately we also ended up with THE most obnoxious drunk people in front of us who were having a full blown top of their lungs conversation for most of the show. I get that these settings don’t lend themselves for you to be around a bunch of Gavin fans like a regular concert of his in a smaller venue would, but cmon have some common courtesy. (I may have spent the first 3 songs trying to figure out if I could “accidentally” drop my cane with enough force to knock him in the head and knock some sense into him.) Fortunately they left early. (After screaming ” I WANT TO SEE ELTON JOHN SO BAD ” when he started to sing… Maybe I’m Amazed.)
The set list was relatively short and most of his singles – which was good because I haven’t really been listening to him all that much lately so I was still able to sing along. The highlight of the show though was a little boy named Shane. Gavin spotted him dancing in the crowd and asked him to come up front and then asked him to come up on stage to show off his moves to everyone. So much energy and so many dance moves!
Before the show I also won on the slots – at one point I was up about $70 but ended up leaving with $50 more than I came with. I can’t complain! A free concert that they basically paid me to attend?
