Mailow looks great for the road, miles and platinum records sales under his belt. He danced his way through the decades as the crowd kept him going with their sing-a-longs of his classics tunes. Along with his encore tribute to our nation’s birthday he brought the sold out show into their feet with his rendition of Let Freedom Ring.
