Chris Rock inducted into Mohegan Sun Walk of Fame

6 June 2022

(PRESS RELEASE) -- Before his fourth sold-out show at Mohegan Sun Arena, Chris Rock was inducted into the Mohegan Sun Walk of Fame. Tom Cantone, President of Sports and Entertainment Worldwide for Mohegan, presented Rock with the honor in a private ceremony backstage. The Grammy and Emmy Award-winning comedian, actor, director, writer, and producer is the 37th inductee into the Mohegan Sun Walk of Fame.

“In a world that needs more laughter, how timely is it to induct Chris Rock, who is now forever enshrined into the Mohegan Sun Entertainment family,” said Tom Cantone, President of Sports and Entertainment Worldwide for Mohegan.

Rock performed for a sold-out crowd on Friday evening as part of his Ego Death World Tour. It was his fourth show at Mohegan Sun Arena since making his debut in 2008. All four of his shows at Mohegan Sun Arena have sold out.

Rock has won four Emmy Awards, three Grammy Awards and is a New York Times Best-Selling Author. In addition, he received two nominations at the 2016 Emmy Awards for “Outstanding Director for a Variety Special” for Amy Schumer: Live at the Apollo and “Outstanding Special Class Program” for the 88th annual Academy Awards.

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 who 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 the inductees into the Mohegan Sun Walk of Fame have their name engraved on a plaque that will be permanently placed at the entrance to Mohegan Sun Arena. Award-winning Rock band Shinedown was most recently inducted into the Walk of Fame in April.
