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

3.0 star rating Barb from Ottawa, Ontario


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

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.

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
