I would give this show a "4," except for the omission of an encore by Mr. Benson! He was in great voice, played the guitar wonderfully and interpreted Mr. Cole's music in an exacting way that no other artist could match. Despite a loud standing...continued

The Concert was fantastic, George Benson always puts on a great show and is a fantastic entertainer. The show had just the right mixture of Nat King Cole tribute and Bensons own hits.

the event was great, but for the price we paid for our seats;the seats weren't very good. We could have bought them the day of the show and have better seats for the amount we paid. This is the first time in 4 years that we didn't get good seats.

Beautiful music and a very talented band. Thoroughly enjoyed the evening. Although I was surprised that there was no encore, the performances were fantastic. The crowd gave him a standing ovation for a very long time.

Wow! Is all I can say! The venue was world class, the seats perfect, and George?...... He was playing Nat King Cole's timeless classics. So my evening was TRULY "unforgetable"! Then George and his band played his own hits to absoluet perfection....continued

Really enjoyed the concert. A nice blend of tribute to Nat King Cole and a reprise of Benson's major hits. Only one negative: Benson didn't seem prepared in some respects such as introducing many of his fellow performers on stage and forgetting...continued

This was an excellent over all performance. I thought that the tribute to Nat "King" Cole was a little weak. Geaorge Benson and his playing and singing were out standing. His guitar players, drummer and piano players backing him were fantastic in...continued

Absolutely fantastic performance! Part Nat King Cole music appreciation class trip and part George Benson just being his fantastic self with great renditions of his top hits. Was well worth it. My only regret was not getting closer seats!

Great show with Benson opening with Breezin and playing his hits after some Nat songs. I was impressed by his energy and voice. He still has it! An encore would have been nice, but not mandatory.

IT WAS REALLY GREAT, THE ONLY THING IS THAT IT ENDED TOO QUICKLY. HE IS AS GOOD AS HE HAS ALWAYS BEEN. I WISH HE WOULD HAVE DONE MORE OF HIS OWN MUSIC.

Mr. Benson and his band plus the orchestra gave an outstanding performance. We actually got two concerts for the price of one - George Benson's greatest hits and excellent renditions of Nat King Cole's music.
My only request would have been that...continued

The show was great and left you wanting for more. I would have liked for Mr Benson to have ended the show differently. No encore and many of the people in attendance did not no that the show was over until the lights came on. We appreciated Mr....continued
