BWW Review: Mohegan Sun Arena Hosts Tony Bennett

On Saturday, September 30th, Tony Bennett gave a stellar performance at the Mohegan Sun Arena. The 91-year-old singing legend brought the crowd to their feet more than once, applauding him (and his strong vocals) time and time again.

Bennett moved along the stage with ease, performing all the classics, including "The Way You Look Tonight," "One for My Baby (And One More for the Road)," and "Fly Me to the Moon." Of course, the evening wouldn't be complete without him belting out the popular, "I Left My Heart in San Francisco."

Throughout the evening, Bennett got a little personal by talking about his past performances and experiences, including singing with Lady Gaga. He also interacted with the crowd by asking them if he "should keep going," which of course was a no-brainer.

Between his old school swagger, powerful voice, and charming smile, Tony Bennett delighted the stage and proved he's still got it - not that anyone ever had any doubt.

The next time you're heading to a show and need a spot to eat before or after, Mohegan Sun has plenty to offer its hungry patrons. Michael Jordon's Steakhouse is the prime location (close to the arena) for swanky sips and solid steaks (23-ounce prime bone-in ribeye, anyone?) that will help add to your night of entertainment. Just be sure to leave room for The Bomb, an ultra-decadent dessert made with espresso ganache and peanut butter. Only have time for a quick drink and appetizers? Hit up the weekly happy hour every Sunday-Thursday from 4-5:30 pm.
