    I've not seen him, but that Rod Stewart guy is pretty good (had to, sue me). I've seen him about 5 times going back to 1992 when my dad came up to stay in my college dorm for a night prior to the show (dad was 65 at the time). The voice isn't what it was in the 70's, but it's Rod the bod. He still gets around decently and puts on a helluva show. It's all songs you know and love if you're a fan. As with any entertainer in his advanced years, I say see them while you can.

    I haven’t seen him either —in Vegas—-but if he ever reunited with Faces—now that’s be something else.

    Wifey dragged me to a couple of regular (touring) concerts: Great experience, although I am not remotely a fan!
    Then I've seen him in Vegas (you guessed it, the good wife mandated my attendance) - tight show, 90 minutes and you're outta there...still vintage Rod, but a bit short for the $$. Does not compare to a "Rod on tour" show.

    I've seen him twice at Caesar's...definitely worth seeing. He plays nothing but hits and it's a great venue.

    6D525867-3784-4A96-8C4F-2F0A107638FE.jpeg I went in September and he was the bomb! I had a front row center seat and it was awesome! I knew all the songs. He still has a great voice and the show was entertaining. He started to sing a song then he started laughing and told the band to stop, then he said “I forgot the words to the bloody song” and they started again. I thought it was a great show.

    Have seen him five times in Vegas and three times locally in the UK. He puts on a great show. If you’re seeing him at the Coliseum, there isn’t a bad seat. If you’re in the gods, there are screens with close ups. If you like his music, it’s a must do show.

    Saw him a couple years ago at CP and thought the show was great. Unless something has changed in two years, I would do it

    We saw him at Caesars a couple of years ago. My husband went reluctantly and said he was happy he did as he really enjoyed the show too.

    I had 2 tix as part of my offer and hubby didn’t want to go so I tipped an usher and he moved me up. My original seats were good, I never EVER expected an escort to the front row!

    I saw him last year right after he got the cast off of his foot! He was still limping a little bit but he appeared to be very happy not to have that cast on LOL. If you are on the ground level kind of near him you might even catch a soccer ball or two. As has been said about he does most of the hits and there is pretty good audience interaction about some of the songs. I think he does change up a song or two occasionally when I was there he did Georgie which is one of my favorites. There is even a sequence when he walks through the crowd with his entourage which I thought was cool as well. He does take some time outs during the show. I overheard a few British people complain but geez he's like 70-something years old give him a break! I was delighted and not disappointed at all with the show.

    I saw him several years ago and I loved the show. I agree with most of warmsun's comments. He was kicking balls into the upper deck.
