SO MUCH FUN!

I waited 50 years to see Rod and he didn’t disappoint. Ok he may walk instead of run, give himself rest breaks during the show but he gives so much to his audience and sounded great. Was transported back decades and loved every second. Cyndi Lauper was great too...funny, poignant, ever an activist.

ROD STEWART CONCERT

He will NEVER be too old! I would like to see the blowhards who say he is , try to keep up with him! Trolls should go back to their caves and stop bothering humanity! Rod Stewart performance was perfect! His band were truly awesome! There was so much talent on that stage last night that it was magic!

5.0 star rating Vanessa from South Attleboro, MA

ROD STEWART

Rod never disappoints! This was his best show ever and can’t wait to see what he has in store for this lifetime fan next!

5.0 star rating from Houston, Texas

FANTASTIC!

Every thing some concert goers are complaining about is a shock to me. First of all Cheap Trick sounds great and was so much fun. Rod seemed generally happy to be performing even though it felt like it was 100 degrees! I can’t imagine how hot he was in his suit and tie, and under those lights. Nothing like the heat in Texas! Even after costume changes it was so hot! His back up singers were so much fun, and for those that didn’t enjoy them, I’m pretty sure nothing would make them happy. Taking us through the changes of his career brought back so many memories, and on top of all this he sounded better than ever! 77 looks good on him!

5.0 star rating Diana Loth from Houston, Texas

ABSOLUTELY FABULOUS SHOW HERE IN HOUSTON... ROD AND CHEAP TRICK WERE GREAT

5.0 star rating Barry from Nashville, Tennessee

AMAZED

Wasn’t much of a Rod fan but my wife has been a huge fan all her life. She talked me into going with her to see him with opening act Cheap . I have been to many concerts in my lifetime and would like to say this one ranks up there as one of the best I have seen. Being 77 years old, Rod put on a very energetic concert and had me standing on my old feet most of the concert singing along. Glad my wife talked me into going . I highly recommend this event. Thanx Rod for the road down memory lane.!!

5.0 star rating Frank Bailey from Nashville, Tennessee

AWESOME CONCERT!!

First, I want to say that I've never been a big Rod Steward fan, but that has changed. We saw the Rod Stewart concert in Nashville on July 5, 2022. From start to finish, Rod was incredible. Yes, he's 77 years old. He gave it his all and did wonderfully. His "girls" were amazing and so talented, as were the male musicians. My wife and I smiled all through the concert. Anyone who gives this concert less than 5 stars must have drank too much. If he were putting on a second show tonight, we'd go again. Seriously.

5.0 star rating Carol Dean from Nashville, Tennessee

FANTASTIC!!!

Waited my whole life to see this man and he didn’t disappoint, Budweiser Stadium was shoulder to shoulder, I cried the entire time. Only sang one of his new songs from his Hercules album, the rest was all greatest hits. My life is now complete. I love you Rod!! Thank you., Thank you, Thank you.

5.0 star rating Len from Toronto, Ontario

INCREDIBLE!!

What a night at the Budweiser stage! Cheap Trick started the night off and performed a great set. The crowd was appreciative. Rod came out to a thunderous ovation. It had been 4 years since we last saw Rod. This was my 27th Rod Stewart concert over the past 40 years. My First show was in 1981 at Maple Leaf Gardens, Ticket Price was $10.00. I must say, Rod was feeding off the love and energy of this Loud Toronto crowd as he had a little spring in his step and seemed moved by the response of the crowd. He sounded great! Still had a few mic stand twirls. Set list was amazing! The back up band was incredible and the Three Blonde back up singers did not stop! Their energy was off the charts! My 26 year old son was with me and it was his first Rod concert. He said it was the best concert he has ever seen. Rod 77 years young, I cant wait for the next show!

5.0 star rating Mike C. from Boston, Massachusetts

AMAZING AND MEMORABLE

True not the Rod Stewart of yesterday but the Rod Stewart of today touched and engaged the audience. … and the band was fantastic adding a new life to the classics with a today flair. Our only negative is the pairing with Cheap Tricks, just not the right band and style mix.

STILL PUTTING ON A SHOW!

Cheap Trick to open and more of the draw for me, but Rod and the rest of the performers he had with him made it a super rising entertaining concert. I would definitely recommend it. Showman!

5.0 star rating Leslie Derrington from Hershey, Pennsylvania

SIR ROD ROCKED IT

Rod Stewart was amazing in Hershey. Sang a variety of songs from all of his musical career. His voice is still strong and oh so incredible! The backup singers and band were so talented and added so much to the show. l grew up singing the songs of Rod and standing up Saturday night in the warm air at the beautiful Hershey arena surrounded by thousands of singing fans l was once again a young. teenage girl. Thank you Rod for letting me relive my 70’s memories, if just for one night. ❤️❤️

HE’S STILL FABULOUS

I have seen him perform since I was in my twenties. Now, in my sixties, still such a wonderful performer. We saw him last night at Jones Beach.

5.0 star rating Sally Brown from Charlotte, North Carolina

STILL GOT IT!

Rod may be slowing down somewhat, but still a great showman and a great voice! Love that man!

5.0 star rating Jill from Baltimore, Maryland

FOREVER YOUNG

Had the best time at Merriweather, in Maryland last night. I’ve seen Rod in concert more times than I can count. Has he slowed down, yes…he’s 77 years old! I expected that, I’ve slowed down too. He can still sing, move around the stage and the songs are just plain timeless. The place was packed and the audience seemed into it, so many songs the band just stopped and the audience would sing several lines back, love that! The band and backup singers were extremely talented and energetic! I’ve read reviews here saying , Rod had to sit, Rod had to go off stage three times- HE’S always gone off stage to change outfits and he’s been doing the sit down part of the show (when showcasing 3-4 ballads) for years! And so what? He thanked the audience twice for coming etc.. Love his sense of humor and love that he still kicks out the soccer balls! My only wish, he would’ve come out for an encore. I highly recommend seeing Rod in concert, forever a great live performer!

ROD STEWART AT AMALIE ARENA. TAMPA 9-3-22

Second time seeing Rod and he didn't disappoint. Even sporting a recent knee injury and being in obvious pain he was fabulous. Played for 2 hours with a few breaks while the rest of the band carried on. All the favs including several songs from his time in Faces. Would jump at the chance to see him again. Rock on Sir Rodney!

5.0 star rating Paul from Tampa, Florida

ROCKIN ROD HAVING FUN AT THE SUN

Loads of fun songs! Rod was talkative and had a great band with fantastic sax player. Dedicated songs to veterans and the kids who marched around the country railyinv for safer schools. Would definetly see this show again given the chance. Good view even from back row floor seats. If you see a concert here suggest you book a restaurant a few weeks ahead because they all had hours long wait lines

4.0 star rating Dave Tottenham from Boston, Massachusetts

EXCELLENT

Very entertaining ! showman!

4.0 star rating Mike from Boston, Massachusetts

STILL ROCKING AT 77

I had seen Rod once before in Mansfield MA, pre-COVID and he was spectacular. This show in August 2022 was a little more subdued. That said, the man is 77 and still out their rocking. Sure, he was propped up a bit by his band and backup singers, but that's okay and understandable. If you're a Rod fan, you'd have liked the show. As an aside, Cheap Trick absolutely rocked...they have not lost their fastball at all.

4.0 star rating Brenda King from Atlanta, Georgia

ENJOYED SEEING ROD FOR 1ST TIME!

I have been to many concerts, but had never seen Rod. My goal at 71 is to see as many concerts that I have missed over the years. I really wanted Rod to sing more of his most popular songs, but he looked very tired. I wasn't a fan of all the extras playing and singing with him even though they were all very good. It seemed to me the music was to loud. Rod was hard to hear when he sang. I have seen Cheap Trick before and I liked their choice of songs. Rod did have an encore. Some people mentioned he didn't.

3.0 star rating K.R. from Winnipeg, Manitoba

GOOD BUT MELLO

I had seen him several times before and for his age definitely still a good show but too mellow for me. best song for me was his Muddy Waters song. all in all glad I went good to destress

ROD IN OTTAWA ONT

Rod 's voice was awesome. Band was amazing . The ladies can play multiple instruments, One of them played bongos,harp,maracas , tambourine ,keyboard, symbols and ,banjo .. We had a side view if stage . My son got a glimpse of Rod changing when the door opened. It's okay Rod we were 300 section. I think it was a little short,maybe just because, I could just have listened to him all night. Back up singers were lively and fun. Oh ya and the man can stilll kick a soccer ball. Thanks Chez106 for the tickets

3.0 star rating Daniel from Toronto, Ontario

GREAT BUT TOO LOUD

Finally got to see the man himself. What an entertainer ! Bass guitar needs to review sound tho - completely muddled most of the time except in softer passages. The speaker system needs to be tweaked.

3.0 star rating Eleanor from Ottawa, Ontario

ROD LOSING ENERGY

Overall great show. However felt Rod was struggling at times foe energy. Glad I went. Had great seats. Wont go again if that should happen but I doubt it. He on;y comes here every 10 yrs so ....................

GOOD QUICKIE, BUT THIS IS SATURDAY NIGHT!

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?

3.0 star rating Jodi Brandt from Santa Barbara, California

BIZARRE

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!

3.0 star rating Janet Sicoff from Santa Barbara, California

VERY DISPPAOINTED IN SHOW AND THE WAY IT ENDED

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

ROD STEWART CONCERT

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?

3.0 star rating Elly Barr from Tampa, Florida

WEIRD ENDING!

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!

2.0 star rating Bob Brown from Toronto, Ontario

ROD AT THE ACC

Rubbish, he's loosing it. Seen many rod concerts even when in the faces. This was probably the worst. Too much emphasis on individual band members and back up singers. Not the usual energy from rod. Too old now. Give it up rod.

2.0 star rating Pedro Crawford from Santa Barbara, California

NO ENCORE? TAKES A SEAT HALF WAY THROUGH CONCERT?

Give it up. I know he's 74, but he didn't come out for an encore, was surrounded by capable, mostly younger musicians who were forced to sit on stools half way through the concert because Sir Rod had to take a break (not including his frequent off stage breaks). It is time to retire. Wouldn't come out for an encore despite loud, adoring crowd.

2.0 star rating Diane from Las Vegas, Nevada

ROD STEWART

Rod look tired, unprepared and anxious to get the show finished. I was so looking forward to show and left disappointed - everyone was waiting for a huge encore which didn’t happen. Bad opening night.

2.0 star rating Deb McNamara from Houston, Texas

FOREVER YOUNG? NOT SO MUCH.

The show last night was a complete disappointment. I have seen Rod several times. Last time was in Vegas and he was good. However, that was a few years and time has not been good to Rod. The show was basically a Vegas style production with very beautiful talented young ladies and men doing the work for old Rod. He mouths the words of the song and attempts to make some “Do you think I’m Sexy” moves but, he is well past his singing expectation date. Don’t take me wrong, we are all getting old but, some of us know when to retire gracefully. Stay home and save your money. This is not the Rod we once knew. Also, Cheep Trick was horrible. Talk about a bunch of old white men trying to be cool. This was not an entertaining evening.

STILL ROCKING

I loved the whole show, for a man of 73, he was great
