On Friday, August 28th, Mohegan Sun honored country cutie Taylor Swift with her very own star on their Walk of Fame. Taylor’s stop at Mohegan Sun, part of her outrageously successful “Fearless” Tour, sold out in a record breaking two minutes.
Taylor’s induction ceremony drew the largest crowd to date for any Walk of Fame inductees. The crowd chanted Taylor’s name as they tried to patiently wait for her. Deafening screams announced her arrival in front of the Mohegan Sun Arena box office.
“Honestly, this has been the best summer of my life and I cannot wait to continue that and have a lot of fun tonight with you guys,” said Taylor, referring to her concert featuring Glorianna and American Idol winner, Kellie Pickler, later Friday night. “It means the world to me that you guys have sold out this show for me and I cannot thank you enough. Thank you so much for my spot on the floor.”
The Walk of Fame is in honor of those individuals who have made significant contributions to Mohegan Sun’s success. Previous inductees include Rascal Flatts, Rod Stewart, Alan Jackson, and Tim McGraw, who was the first in 2004.
