It was an exciting promotion… Santa Tom Cantone, Vice President, Sports and Entertainment, Mohegan Sun, gave two SOLD OUT tickets to the One Direction show while the Resident and WBLQ partnered to get the good news out to the fans.  The fans wrote an essay on why they wanted to win the coveted tickets — and the winner is… Delaney Gagnon of Ledyard!

 


Delaney writes…

“At first winning the tickets was a shock of excitement. But getting into the actual concert was even more exciting than expected. Waiting for the actual show was agonizing; my five idols were meters away from me. But after an hour and a half wait they finally popped out of the stage. The whole stadium roared with cheers as they started to sing.

All during the show everyone was jumping and singing along. They were so funny and there definitely weren’t any down points on the concert. The stage itself was really cool, fireworks (yes, real fireworks), confetti, actual fire, and giant balls fell from the ceiling. My favorite part of the concert had to be during their song “Moments,” because the fans put on their phone lights and waved them around so the lights were all around the arena. It looked really cool!

There were a lot more exciting things during the concert, but I don’t think I could fit them all into one email! I just want to thank The Resident for giving me the chance to see One Direction —  Especially Santa Tom for getting the best tickets in the arena and promoting this all along.”

Love from a Directioner,
