Burton Cummings Concert Reviews
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.
Saw both shows! Absolutely awesome. Front row, center. Just saw many asking for his return. He is going back to The Orleans December 5th and 6th. Confirmed!!! Be there!! I will!!?
BC DOES IT AGAIN, WITH CLASS!!!
Saw you were coming to Las Vegas and got my ticket 3 months in advance!! Got 7th row in front of piano!! Great seats and got lots of pictures!! When I got there I got a ticket for Saturday night too!! 2nd row on isle near piano!!! Both nights were the greatest!! It was like watching a continuous concert. It was the best!! 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!

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.
Remember Burton from Wpg in the 60's,saw you several times in Calgary. The best! My grandson,18 @ the time really enjoyed the show,especilly Wolfman. Knows all of your music,that's a compliment. Your hits are ever enduring,F
WOW WOW WOW
i fell in love with burton and his great voice back in late 60s and sill am...his concerts were always too far away for me to go ...but when i saw las vegas...one of the things on my bucket list just got crossed off...his voice is still as great as it was in the 60s-70s. he is a great performer also ....if you ever get to see him..you will be so happy you did...great band with him also.. so thanks burton and band thanks for making a great night for me and all the others there that night....we thank you
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
Best Showman in Vegas
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.
My perfect weekend was Burton's show on Friday night & getting married on Saturday ! I am 48 years old and have been listing to your music since I was 8 years old , my older brothers turned me on to The guess Who & Burton. My brothers are gone now, but your music keeps them close in spirit every time I hear one of your songs, it has been the backdrop of our family for 40 years +. I love you man, keep her rollin' !
