There is perhaps no greater tribute to both the artist and the audience than that magic moment when the performer acknowledges what a great time he/she is having and doesn't want to stop playing. From the smile on his face and the reaction of the crowd, this had to have been a magic night for all. Although it was the first time I had heard him live, I have listened countless hours to his music, both solo and with the band. What a phenomenal experience to have heard a performer whose voice, although I didn't think it possible, has become even better with age. Thank you Burton for years of enjoyment.

Great material, great sound, and great performance!! "The Voice" was optimum!! Thanks for taking the "chance" to do the Vegas gig!! It was the best!! I also saw you in LA last year and in Capistrano the year before. They were fantastic!! Come back to Vegas soon!! Can't wait to see you and hear you again!!!!

Burton Cummings in Vegas

Man, really loved the show, the band he toured with really sets the stage of the Guess Who Back Drop, and Burton was awesome on Key's and lead vocals. Did the Guess Who Library, as well as adding in some Vegas standards, and some solo career mentions. He truly puts on a great show live. My only regret is he's not touring with some of the original members of the GW, but again, his band is stellar performing the Guess Who collection. Oh Ya, Burton, you should sign after shows brother!

Venue: Massey Hall • 
City, State: Toronto • 
Date: Thursday trying to be Saturday 

I ussually don't attend concerts and if I do I ussually sit at the seat closest to the exit. However I went to my first Burton Cummings concert and it was a complete surprise. I think Burton deserved less amplification and more aucoustic representation. Musically he his Mr. Talent. I was touched by one of his interludes I enjoyed his commentary between his songwriting but the last thing I saw him do was use his professional piano fingers, a little Beethoven technique on a synthesiser. Bravo-See and listen to you again, I'll be there and clap for real.

Grabbed tickets for this first of two shows in Vegas while we were there. As a veteran of over 200 live shows this one rates up there in the top 10. Just a fabulous night of great tunes. Highly recommended

Burton Cummings, the best showman in Vegas or anywhere. If you can get a ticket, don't miss him. You get more than a wild keyboard and the best voice in rock history. No fog machines or wardrobe malfunctions; he'll just hold out his hand and touch your heart. Probably steal the whole thing.

    • Bob Capasso

      Hello Burton! I have been a fan since I was 1968, (born in 1959). I’m desperately waiting for “Sweet Sweet” and “Heart” to be released on cd. Do you think this will ever happen? I know that the record companies suck!!! Shoot me an email if you could at bobcap912@aol.com. Thanks! Bob

  • memerepaulette@hotmail.com

    Its with great regret that i had to miss your last show here in Moncton N.B….I’ve been to your concerts at least 7 times and never tire of hearing you sing and perform…….I must say every show is better than the last……Looking forward to your next…..

  • MLilla

    Heard several people comment at Skagit (17th) about not having seen BC in years and thinking he has even more energy and sounds even better now (if such were possible.) Great show! (Even from the last row. Voting for a larger NW WA venue!)

  • http://www.facebook.com/eurotim Tim Dakin

    Loved the concert in Victoria back in December, was excited to go but was blown away at how good it was. Would love the chance to see Burton again whenever possible.

  • http://www.facebook.com/cheryl.osborne Cheryl Osborne

    Seen Burton at Jack Singer Concert Hall on Dec 3rd, 2012 in Calgary, Alberta. He was totally awesome, you would never know he was almost 65 yrs of age at this time because he sang as he always did and rocked our socks off! Loved every single second of that Concert!!

  • http://www.facebook.com/bobbie.crawford1 Bobbie Crawford

    I was so disappointed when I was unable to get tickets for your Bow, WA show. But now I know it was so that I would get the best seats for the best performance ever in Aberdeen at the D & R. You never sounded better and the whole show felt very personal. And you sang Mac The Knife. Thank you so much ! When I closed my eyes I could of been back at the Paramount in the late seventies listening to you as you sound just as good as ever.

  • http://www.facebook.com/randy.anderson.731135 Randy Anderson

    Such a great concert at the D and R Theater in Aberdeen,Wa.But the best part was meeting Burton after the concert, My wife and I can scratch that item off our bucket list,He is such a great Gentleman.

    • jj

      Pretty cool! Did BC play One and Only?

  • Paul Sutton

    We saw you in Canada when you recorded “Up Close and Alone”! It was a very memorable night! Last year we drove to LA to see you at the County Fair. To bad it was a short set for you and us. Now, how about some SW dates closer to home, Phoenix or Tucson? Hint, hint! There are some great venues to play at, either a solo show or with the band. Can’t wait to see you again.

  • Jeff Sanchez

    Drove up from S. Seattle to see the show at Skagit Valley Casino. Bought our tickets and booked our room 6 months prior. Saw you at Key Arena in 2005? for Guess Who reunion tour. I knew that you would deliver as Burton Cummings. I’m so awful god damn glad I wish I was in your shoes.

  • Bill MacDonald

    I don’t see any Michigan (or Windsor) dates.

  • Shaunna

    Always been one of my dreams to see you in concert, dream came true tonight. You’re so amazing!!!!!

  • Larry Knapp

    My wife Ronda, my grandaughter Kitteara and I so enjoyed you and your band in Aberdeen. It brought back a lot of memories for my wife and I and made a convert of my 17 year old grandaughter. You brought a great deal of class to a beautiful theater. May God bless you and your beautiful wife and your fantastic band. Let me know if you need a ride in the future, it would be my pleasure!!!

    Just saw Burton in Washington Saturday night …he was amazing !!! Traveled over the line from BC to see him and was blown away !! I have seen most of the big artists over the years and Burton was my all time favorite ! I could have stayed all night and listened to him. Can’t wait to see you again in the near future :)

    Burton you are one of the truly great voices on earth of the last 40 years. Thankyou for the beautiful and interesting songs you have given us. Rain Dance, American Woman, Glamour Boy and Stand Tall stand tall across the world.

  • Cathy

    Hi, Sun Peaks resort is actually near Kamloops, BC. Not even close to Armstrong as it says above. I’m looking forward to being there!

  • Jim

    Attended the Saturday, May 18th show at Skagit Valley Casino Resort. As a former Canadian, I have every record that he made and still listen to them all! He sounds the same as he did 30 years ago! Best concert I have ever been to!
    Burton. In case you read this, I was the guy to your right along the back wall giving the “thumbs up” most of the night. My only regret was hearing the lady next to me, who walked in right after I did say she just bumped into you in the hotel hallway. Can’t help but think how close I was to meeting one of the greatest recording artists on the planet! My bucket list would have been complete! God love you! Hope to see you again soon.

  • Jim

    Burton. You rocked the Skagit Valley Casino!

  • Cary Widel

    Any chance of a Midwest leg? Chicago has missed you.

  • Joe Emery

    Burton, would love to see you in Tulsa Ok.


    Hi Burton,

    We many fans on the West coast would be vary happy to see you.

    We hope you can come visit us. :)

  • Rod Johns

    How about coming down under to Melbourne Australia. There are enough misplaced Canadians here who would certainly appreciate your amazing talent and your great music would certainly bring back a lot of fond memories!!!!

  • Ron

    Hope you will be in the Midwest or Chicago this summer or in the fall. I got to see Burton in in sometime back. Look forward to another concert.

  • Mike Opitz

    Any Chicago area days ? We’d love to hear & see ya again.

  • retcopperhead

    I hope the Annapolis concert is still on for the 29th as I have a ticket to it and a Amtrak ticket from MD the next day to NYC for the City Winery concert!

    • http://BurtonCummings.net Burton Cummings

      The concert has been rescheduled and a 2nd New York City date at City Winery for July 28, 2013 has been added due to overwhelming demand. – TEAM

      • retcopperhead

        That is unfortunate as I bought my ticket for Annapolis on the 29th and already bought my Amtrak ticket from Aberdeen, MD to NYC for the show on the 30th. And I am driving to Maryland from Kentucky!

    Checking e-mails and noticed I got 2 free tickets to Bachman and Turner at Resorts Casino in Atlantic City tomorrow. Gamblers with free rooms? Oh My – maybe make this happen!!!! Woo hoo! Too bad you weren’t playing there too, That would be something!

  • Bruce P.

    Burton Cummings is the quintessential rock star! We saw him in northeastern Nevada about a year ago. It was just like a big private party. His show is amazing; his voice is as good or maybe even better than 30 years ago.If you ever get a chance to see him you will not be disappointed.

    Hey! Did anybody get tickets to the show in Niagara Falls? When I saw the show I booked a hotel and could never get tickets through here or the Casino. This site kept saying none available and the casino kept saying none available at this time. Huh? Did I miss something? When did they go on sale? Strange. There are some on the scalper sites. What the? If anybody has any they can’t use let me know. I definitely need a vacation! Oh btw I am on the Songza site, going on a roadtrip with Burton! hahahaha Nice to hear what you listen to, all kinds of music, like me.

  • Pamela Brown Wells

    Are you planning on coming down to Florida for a concert? I would love to see you in person! You have been one of my favorite performers for years. We used to dance on the tables when we sang along with your songs while we were in college!!!!

  • Dale Offill

    It would be great if you could come to Milwaukee, Wi. Summer fest would be a great venue.

  • Boo Bayne

    What about San Diego?



  • Lonni Cummings

    I saw Burton last May in Washington state. Best show I have ever seen! This was the fourth time I have seen him over the past 25 years and he always puts on a stellar performance. He gets better every time I see him. He did a meet and greet after the show and I got to meet him and get his autograph, I never imagined I would ever get to meet him. He is the kindest most sincere person, and he sat and talked with me for a half hour after the show. He is very genuine and truly cares about his fans! I will definitely see him again when he is close to my area. Even though we share the same last name ( which is really cool), we are not related.

  • Paul Chester

    I saw Burton at a bar I worked at years ago in Cambridge Ontario I’d love to see him play again

  • Susan G Klann

    what about hometown peg???
