UNCASVILLE, CT – (Mohegan Sun PR – Special to Inquiring News-CT – October 17, 2016) – Heading into this October, Mohegan Sun set out to provide a full month of non-stop entertainment in honor of the flagship property’s 20th Anniversary, highlighted by a blowout weekend that kicked off this past Friday. The weekend certainly exceeded expectations, with multiple special anniversary events, incredible entertainment, signings, appearances and jam-packed after parties filled with celebrities like Jessie James Decker, Chrissy Teigen, John Legend, LL Cool J, Clive Standen, David Ortiz, Martin Sensmeier and many more.

The fun kicked off with the return of Kevin Hart to Mohegan Sun Arena on Friday, October 14th, where he hosted the “20th Anniversary Comedy All-Star Gala” that featured other stand-up heavyweights, Dave Attell, Sarah Silverman, Margaret Cho and Keith Robinson. Following the performance, Hart ran into David Ortiz on the Red Carpet, as they headed into the “Official Kevin Hart After Party” inside Mohegan Sun’s popular night club, Avalon. Jessie James Decker, the Country Pop singer, reality TV star and wife of New York Jets Wide Receiver, could be seen on Friday’s red carpet just after her performance in Mohegan Sun’s Cabaret Theatre, as well!

Saturday evening was highlighted by the arrival of model and Spike TV’s Lip Sync Battle co-host, Chrissy Teigen and Grammy Award-winning R&B singer and husband, John Legend, who walked the Red Carpet outside of Michael Jordan’s 23.sportcafe just before Midnight to the delight of adoring and screaming fans.

From there, the superstar couple made their way into the 20th Anniversary Ballroom Party that celebrity DJ and producer, Timbaland, was headlining. Other notable guests that partied at Mohegan Sun Saturday evening included Brody Jenner, Tyson Beckford, Robin Thicke, New London’s own, Cassie (who can be seen here joining Timbaland by the DJ booth), Clive Standen, Joe Manganiello, Wes Welker, Johnny Damon, Teresa Giudice, Melissa Gorga, Ramona Singer, DJ Cassidy, Lenny Platt, Nico Tortorella, Vicki Gunvalson, Jojo Fletcher and Jordan Rodgers (click to view additional images of Chrissy, John and more at Mohegan Sun on October 15th.

And for what possibly was the most anticipated Wolf Den performance in the legendary venue’s 20-year history, Hip-Hop great, LL Cool J, put on a show for the ages at Mohegan Sun. The crowd, which stretched deep into the gaming floor that surrounds the 350-seat, free venue, erupted when LL took the stage, and never let up through hits like “Hey Lover,” “Doin’ It Well,” “Hush,” “Headstrong” and “Ill Bomb.” The Rap icon wished Mohegan Sun a happy 20 years before wrapping an incredible performance, and stopping by the red carpet himself.

And just across the way inside the award-winning Mohegan Sun Arena, superstar singer & actress, Fergie, performed a special 20th Anniversary concert for fans. Special guest, Daya, who had one of the biggest hits of the summer with, “Hide Away,” opened the show.

Other special events and signings that took place this past weekend included a special edition Reality Check with former Jersey Shore star Vinny Guadagnino and his mother, Paola, as they greeted fans in The Shops concourse for a Q&A and photo meet and greet. The two are currently on Food Network’s Vinny and Ma Eat America. Mary, Mauro and Maddalena from TLC’s hit show, Cake Boss, presented Mohegan Sun’s Senior Leadership with a special 20th Anniversary cake on the Tuscany Terrace Saturday afternoon, as well.

Some of the world’s biggest performers are still yet to come as part of Mohegan Sun’s month-long 20th Anniversary, with Sia and special guests Miguel & AlunaGeorge making their way to Mohegan Sun Arena on Wednesday, October 26th, Carrie Underwood on Friday, October 28th and the one and only, KISS, on Saturday, October 29th.
