Tracy Morgan and Bon Jovi Performed at Robert Kraft’s Surprise Birthday Party
Robert Kraft had a star-studded celebration for his 75th birthday over the weekend.
According to the Boston Globe, the Patriots owner’s sons Jonathan, Daniel, and Josh organized a swanky surprise party at Hanscom Field in Bedford, where more than 100 guests gathered to wish Kraft well on Saturday night.
Unfortunately, the evening got off to a rocky start as comedian Tracy Morgan’s performance wasn’t well received by the crowd. The Globe reports that the 30 Rock star cracked a few jokes at the expense of Tom Brady, who was in attendance, before walking off stage just minutes into his set. Kraft apparently tried to smooth things over by bringing Morgan back on stage in order to apologize for the lack of laughter.
The weekend soirée also featured a performance by musician and avid football fan Jon Bon Jovi.
