LIONEL TICKETS WERE VALENTINE’S DAY PRESENTS TO EACH OTHER
We had 5th row F2 floor seats. Great up-close view. Lionel sang all his greatest hits, and the audience had a blast singing with him. He was very entertaining, personable, and engaged with his audience. He introduced one of the former Commodores who lives in the area. It was a very nice gesture and got stand-up applause. Lionel’s energy was awesome. His voice and ballads at the piano were just as romantic as they were 30 years - “Truly,” “Still,” “Hello,”, “Three times a lady.” He was very funny when he told the story about how he has been waiting for 34 years for Diana Ross to join him on stage to sing “Endless Love,” and for 34 years she has said no. He said he is still wishing and hoping. He asked all the women in the audience to sing her verses. He went from song to song to song and sang for about an hour and 45 minutes. He ended with “All Night Long.” Lionel’s show was terrific. Hope he returns to Orlando someday.

WE PARTIED ALMOST “ALL NIGHT LONG “ GREAT SHOW!
It was really a great show! Lionel is so personable and all the fans were delightful,! He left everyone with such a great feeling, and I have to say that I haven’t been to a concert that left me feeling so wonderful when I left out of there in a very long time! Thanks smart financial for bringing him here! He left everyone with such a great feeling!

What an amazing show Lionel put on last night here in Toronto. The quality and vibe and everything about the show reflected the master performer that this guy is. He sang for an hour and 45 minutes and had perfect timing pitch engagement with the audience and above all energy. He finished the show with “all night long” with the energy and electricity that he started the show with. I have been to many many concerts and this one is right up there as One of the best. Oh and he did all this a week after he turned 70.

JRH from Seattle, Washington
Excellent show, he sang many of his hits (including Commodores) and had the crowd sing along. Hard to stop the crown. Fire was real fire and at 81 degrees on a rainless evening in the PNW, he was amazing. Very engaging and talking to audience. His musicians were great also. Thanks for an excellent Tuesday night in the woods in Washington at Marymoor park ....
