Despite a broken foot, country legend Tim McGraw was able to impress an arena full of screaming fans with his raw talent and magnetism Saturday at the Mohegan Sun Arena. McGraw, who broke his foot while on his Emotional Traffic Tour earlier this month, sported a black bandana over the boot cast. He didn’t run around stage, but didn’t hobble either. And he certainly didn’t refrain from moving in ways that made women of all ages scream. Although the lighting and special effects were nothing fancy, McGraw’s ability to engage the crowd with his own energy was nothing short of impressive. He spent a lot of time under a single spotlight, touching fans’ hands and performing a number songs sitting on the stage — eye level with the audience. He event grabbed cameras from the audience and took photos of himself. In an unusual (but pleasant, especially if you were seated in the back) move, McGraw entered the arena and started the show from the back of the arena. A platform stage stretched from the front stage to the back. He spent most of his time performing in the middle, where fans could see him better. But getting personal with the audience wasn’t the only thing that drove them wild. He started the show with classic hits such as “Something Like That” and “Green Grass Grows” — songs close to the hearts of fans. He played a well-rounded mix of hits from early in his career through today. More recent songs he played include “Southern Voice” and “Felt Good On My Lips.” He also played few songs off his upcoming album — “Better Than I Used To Be” and “Right Back At You.” McGraw also had a few surprises in store for the audience. Luke Bryan and The Band Perry, who opened the show, each came out and performed with him. He and Bryan performed “Back When,” and he sang “Can’t Really Be Gone” with The Band Perry. “I can’t tell if you’re taking it or getting it,” McGraw said to Bryan jokingly after he made literal motions to the line “Back when a screw was a screw.” The playful song is about missing the days before words and phrases — screw, “I’m down with that” and hoe, for example — came to have other meanings. McGraw also brought his mother out on stage, prompting him to tell a few stories about growing up in the 70s and 80s in Louisiana. He said he had one of his first “deep tongue kisses” to the Lionel Richie hit “Sail On,” which he then played for the audience. He ended the show with “Indian Outlaw” and “I Like It” — two of his fun, upbeat songs.
