Bowersox stops by Village Idiot during return to NWOWritten by Staff Reports | | email@example.com
A tweet by Crystal Bowersox started internet discussion that the “American Idol” star was going to appear at The Village Idiot in Maumee.
“So happy to be in Ohio hanging with family…. can you say party at the villageidiot in maumee tonight?@frankiemaybass is playing with Ben!” is the message that Bowersox posted on the social networking site, Twitter, at about 5 p.m. on Dec. 27.
Michelle Reed initially thought Bowersox would arrive around 8 p.m.
At 8:30 p.m. The Village Idiot was half full of regular customers, with a few hopeful Bowersox fans.
There was no sign of Bowersox and one of the performers that she had referenced in her Twitter, Ben Barefoot, said he was not aware of Bowersox appearing that night.
Shortly after 11:30 p.m. Bowersox arrived. Reed was streaming live video from The Village Idiot.
FOX Toledo had a video photographer on the scene, Bowersox stated she did not want to talk with the media.
Reed described Bowersox as being “mobbed” by those who were at The Village Idiot. Then Reed said she was asked to stop the live stream and to not record Bowersox’s appearance.
Bowersox reportedly took the stage once the live stream and cameras were turned off and performed “Mason” with her husband, Brian Walker, who accompanied her to The Village Idiot. She then later played “Holy Toledo.”
