"Are you ready for some rock 'n roll, Tulsa?"
Tom grinned at the capacity crowd in the beautiful BOK Center before launching into the opening chords of "American Girl" on his blonde Rickenbacker.
Two teenage blonde girls in the front row shrieked with delight as they recognized the melody of the Heartbreaker hit. A few rows behind them, three college-aged guys bobbed their heads along to the beat while trading smiles and high-fives. A few seats away, an older couple swayed to the music in each others arms, exchanging smiles and knowing glances.
There may be no song more universal than "American Girl." Everyone loves it, which is why Tom likely chooses to end most shows with it on this Mojo tour. It gives every body a chance to dance, a chance to sing and a chance to remember the first time they heard about the girl "raised on promises."
Houston, here we come! Remember to check back for more from the Mojo tour!
