Loved the songs from his best album "Every picture tells a story" and the Tribute to Veterans. I've seen hundreds of concerts and can't remember a time when the lead person did not introduce all the band members and thank the audience before saying goodbye....until Rod Stewart in Santa Barbara last night! We sat with the audience a long time after the concert in disbelief. Many people were disappointed. Maybe he was sick or didn't appreciate the empty seats at the SB Bowl?

It was my first time seeing Rod Stewart in concert and I have to say that although he sounded good there was too much emphasis on back up singers. He left the stage for three songs and the concert and it’s entirety was one hour and 45 minutes. I wish for the second half of the show instead of bringing out white chairs for everyone to sit on that he would’ve just used a small black Stu for himself, I think it would’ve brought less attention to the fact that he needed to sit. The craziest part was there was no encore. Instead there was a music video from some all girl band that I don’t even know. All and all we still had a great time!

Rod Stewart walked off the stage 30 minutes early and never came back or thanked the audience. Everybody was upset and could not figure out what had happened to him. First time at Santa Barbara Bowl and it was a disappointment. Have never seen an artist do this. Did find a great restaurant before the show Milk and Honey on Anapamu

Saw Rod Stewart Sat. Night in Santa B Bizarre. That's only way to describe it. His fans love him and support him His voice was great Just want to know WHY? He just left the stage?

Rod was great! You could see he was tired, voice not as strong. The band and back up singers were fabulous! Rod disappeared for a few songs which was OK. At the start we were told to expect a 2 hour show with some extra numbers but what we got was 9:00- 10:40 and some numbers dropped! The encore was the worst I've ever seen!! Just rubbish and he didn't even say goodbye!

My 4th time seeing Rod since 1979. Every time he is lovely, fantastic show, great voice, great band and back up singers. This time the sound techs messed it up especially on the faster numbers. Bass was so loud and drowned out most words. Also, the pair up with Cheap Trick was a terrible choice, just loud, screaming old men. Horrible. I missed Rod’s usual encore of “ I am sailing”- what happened? His biggest hit missing? Rod still remains my favorite, too bad the sound was so bad it required me to wear ear plugs for half the concert.
