Burton Cummings Concert Reviews
ive seen burton with his band...with randy bachman...with ringo starr...and now solo. each show is better than the last. next time he's in nj, ny or pa...i'll go for a fifth time.
Let me begin by saying that I have always been a Guess Who fan. When I heard the original voice was coming to Newton, I was thrilled.
My husband and I were totally blown away by the performance given by Burton last night. Everything was perfect. The stories behind the songs were especially meaningful. The tributes to Bobby Darin and Gerry and the Pacemakers (my favorite British invasion band) were terrific. Also loved Gordon Lightfoot doing Rod Stewart. You nailed it!
110 minutes of pure enjoyment.
I could go on and on. Thanks so much for a memorable evening. Can't wait until you come back!
Burton at his best....
It doesn't matter if Burton is alone, or with the frogs...he always comes out at the head of the game. He was awesome to say the least...Time passed by so quickly
Just Plain Awesome
The music and energy were electric. BC's voice is still amazing after all this years. Many wonderful songs spanning the full spectrum of BC's career and then some!
So Stand Tall and here is my summary: There was plenty of Sugar Tonight as the audience became Undone as BC Played a Rhapsody...Sung a Lullaby and much more music! Everyone was Laughing when BC did his Gordon Lightfoot riff. Finally, there was No Time left and we Shared the Land following BC's triumphant departure. These Eyes and ears have not experienced Mother Nature's gift of music since my Dreams of a Child!
All kidding aside, BC's voice is as strong and beautiful as ever. A wonderful 2 hours was had by all filled with music, nostalgia and good cheer.
Anyone who has the opportunity to see Burton Cummings live in concert should get their tickets now. Well worth it.
He Can Do It Alone
When my wife and I saw that Burton was going to be performing alone we had some doubt about not having a band behind him and the quality of the concert. We both agree it was one of the best concerts we've ever been to. Burton can bring the house down by himself. We also very much appreciated his autograph on the 1969 Guess Who album we purchased in Montevideo, Uruguay several years ago. We think he got a kick out the cover being in Spanish.
Awesome Solo Performance
I have no doubt that Burton puts on a good show with the band. But his solo performance last night was awesome. It was personal and special, and an evening I will not forget.
Days of RCA
Best concert I have ever seen in my life.
A great example of what most concerts are sorely lacking nowadays.
Friends from 1985
We met Burton Cummings personally a couple of times during an Ontario Conservative leadership convention in Toronto in 1985.
I'm sure he doesn't remember us (Bones , Doogs and Glenn) but we had a lot of laughs in the hospitality suites. We were Queens University students at the time. We all have families now but try to get together once a year for golf and catching up.
All three of us were at the Massey Hall show last Thursday. It was phenominal. We were overwhelmed by the talent. We thought it would be fun to see him but had underestimated how good he is. WOW!!
Loved the saying, 'You don't stop playing when you get old. You get old when you stop playing.'
You Got it Baby.. BIG TME !!!
Sat in the last row floors and up dancing within seconds of you getting on stage doing what you truly do best - you are one of us - you are truly a Canadian. loved the show.. loved the background to your music which has made its way into our hearts and our culture ~ and for that I thank you.
your music & lyrics are great.. your band is great.. and your voice strong and velvety when it needs to be. GREAT opening song lovvvved it !!
I realize not every song can be played. I get that.. but next time you're here please please please sing I Will Play A Rhapsody. so playful and melodic with every note of it sang to precise organization and splendor: makes me smile and sing to it every time ~ !
Super great fun night ~ Toronto loves you and needs you back to the same venue please ASAP. much much thanks Burton. will buy your new record when released.
Return to Kenora
My wife and I attended the Burton Cummings concert in Kenora, Ont during the Harbourfest with local friends. Burton's music while with The Guess Who was what we listened to during our teenage years. He still can rock the house. His performance was amazing and was one of the best concerts we have been too. Thanks Burton for an unbelievable experience
