Danny has clearly led off with his biggest hit, akin to
Sweet Caroline (equally catchy, almost as good). Sweet
Caroline is a good reference actually, mainly because
from the first note (and especially the chorus), the
audience is SINGING ALONG in a call and response fashion
(TWO VIDEO SCREENS even cue the audience to sing their
part with bouncing-ball karaoke-esque prompts).
The CROWD (older) eats it all up. A WOMAN sings his
chorus “Hey, Baby Doll” while also wearing a “Hey, Baby
Doll” T-shirt. ANOTHER WOMAN holds up a sign that reads
“This Granny Loves Danny.”
During the song he mingles with women in the front row -
he kisses one woman’s hand, blows a kiss to another. He
makes a show out of giving one woman his SCARF.
Danny takes in...
AN OLDER COUPLE, arm and arm, SING the response part of
the song back at him. They’re singing way too hard.
THREE OLDER WOMEN sit quietly in their front row seats,
eating RED VINES and mouthing words along, lifeless.
A GROUP OF YOUNG PEOPLE sings along with energy... but
they’re LAUGHING. They’re not laughing with Danny.
He’s seen it all a thousand times. It no longer fazes
He pivots with a little shimmy, keeps performing.
