UNCASVILLE, CT (December 9, 2019) – On Saturday, December 7th, Mohegan Sun honored the 35th Walk of Fame star, Pentatonix. The three-time Grammy award-winning and multi-platinum selling artist were presented with the Walk of Fame star outside of Mohegan Sun’s Box Office by Mohegan Gaming & Entertainment’s (MGE) President of Sports & Entertainment, Tom Cantone. The induction kicked off the first night of their SiriusXM Presents: A Pentatonix Christmas Tour 2019 two night show. Band members Scott Hoying, Mitch Grassi, Kirstin Maldonado and Matt Sallee accepted the award and stated, “This is very exciting as we have never been inducted into a Walk of Fame before…Hollywood Walk of Fame see you soon!”
“Today we are honoring an incredible a capella group that has been part of the Mohegan Sun entertainment family since their Wolf Den shows and later when they made their Arena debut touring with Kelly Clarkson in 2015,” states Tom Cantone. “Since that time, Pentatonix has had multiple headlining sell outs here and it’s looking like they’ll add two more after their back – to – back Christmas shows starting this evening.”
The Walk of Fame hosts names like Bon Jovi, Kevin Hart, KISS, Kenny Chesney, Keith Urban and so many more long-time sell-out acts that are enshrined outside of the Mohegan Sun Box Office forecourt. Mohegan Sun’s Walk of Fame awards seek to recognize individuals and organizations who have made significant contributions to the success of Mohegan Sun as the Northeast’s premier entertainment destination. All of the inductees into the Mohegan Sun Walk of Fame will have their name engraved on a plaque that will be permanently placed at the entrance to Mohegan Sun Arena.
