I'm a concert junkie and especially love the older rock'n'roll artists not just for their music, but because they're growing old with me.

While Rod Stewart put on a fast-moving show, covering his best, crowd-pleasing hits, he's definitely showing his age (64). He just didn't command the stage like he's done in past concerts and his dance moves were quite stilted. In comparison to Mick Jagger who's even older, he just doesn't measure up. Jagger still struts the stage like a mating peacock!

Still, I'd recommend the concert because Stewart's voice is holding up well. You can just feel his pain in "First Cut is the Deepest". He had the crowd on their feet most of the night and ended the concert with his biggest hit - "Maggie May".
