Big disappointment. Never in my 60 plus years have I been to a concert that ended at 9:20pm. Willie played for about an hour and that was it. $100 per ticket for 1 hour! It’s going to be awhile before I do that again.

WOW, This is the 3rd time Ive seen Willie and have always had a great time, however this concert was so very different! Music sounded ok/good as its a great venue But what surprised us most was that is was a rushed concert that lasted under an hour for $ 129.! No talking with or to the audience... he threw his hat and some bandanas into the first few rows, sang another couple songs and then it ended abruptly... We all looked at each other like was that it? Its really over? So Disappointing! I'll never go see him again...A lot of money for 55mins.

Ya know we all love seeing Willie but honestly - it was short, very short, no interaction, no encore, he rushed out, and could he dress up a bit? No one looked like that cared how they looked. Its not a BQ it a concert where you are performing on stage. I just think it shows a bit a disrespect for the audience. We all paid a lot, I was on WL for many weeks. We deserved better. Not sure I'll be back for next year.

It was my first time seeing Willie. I am happy to have had the chance to see him. However, I was somewhat disappointed. The venue (Venetian theater) was great. Willie on the other hand seemed rushed. No interaction with the audience. Played everything at a slightly faster tempo and back to back with no conversation. I got the impression that he was just performing for the paycheck. Like I mentioned, I am happy to say that I saw Willie, but considering the ticket price, I probably would have spent that money on another artist. I will stick with CDs and streaming when it comes to Willie.

Show started at 7:30 with female singer for 1/2 hr. Not talented. Second female singer went on and on until 10:00. Not as bad as first female, but boring. Willie finally made it on stage at 10:15 or so. We were angry for sitting for three hours. When he started playing his guitar I was shocked. He doesn't just strum chords, he actually plays the instrument like classical guitar. His voice is weaker, but same sound. He was amazing. Do without the girls and just sing for an hour if that's all you can do. After all he is 84.

If I wanted to listen to talking I would turn in the radio. He couldn’t even sing the lyrics anymore, he talked them. We left!!! Give it up Willie.

2.0 star rating Rita from Lighthouse Point,Florida


Very disappointing! Willie only sang for 1 hour max. He went through his songs like it was a boring routine, and would sometimes just recite the words instead of singing them . Time to retire, Willie!
