Leon Russell was in top form at the Saban Theatre on Saturday night. His singing and piano playing were as strong as ever. He blew the roof off the place!

Leon Russell puts his heart and soul into his music. At the beginning of his songs, he grabs them as if he has missed them for a long time. He lingers over the ending, as if he is bidding the song a lovely farewell. His piano playing is better...continued

This concert was fantastic. Seeing him up close and personal was a real treat. I primarily went to see Elton John, but the two of them together was so amazing. Standing for the concert was the only downfall to the night.

Easy, breezy with picking up tickets. There's really not a bad seat in the house at the Saban. Opening act was hard to endure, and a bad match for the incomparable Leon Russell. We were lucky to find parking right along Wilshire, ate casually at...continued

Leon Russell was amazing, as always. The sound in this theater was very bright and uneven. I couldn't hear the piano at all in the beginning. It got better as the night went on, but was still so loud it was difficult to hear the words.
The huge...continued

Well, I don't think I'll be going to the Saban Theatre again anytime soon......
Was not happy with the only bathrooms being upstairs, and no elevators!

Leon was GREAT!............Could've past up on the first act....

This was a fun evening, in a beautiful setting. It was a flash to the past for my husband who has been a big fan and had not seen him in concert for 42 years!! Glad we went!

Really great. Leon's no longer young and walks with a cane but as soon as he sits down at the piano it's 1970 again. His piano skills are undiminished and his voice is unique. Played for almost 2 hours without a break.
