CeDell Davis may be the oldest here.  He's 89 now, but I'm not sure how old he was when I saw him.

Hmm, probably Brian Wilson, about 5 years ago, in Bristol.

I saw pianist D!ck Hyman play at Dizzy's Club in TimeWarner Center NYC, christmas-time 2015.  He would have been 88 then.
I saw Ellis Marsalis Jr. in 2002 in Toronto.  He would have been 68 then.  Great show.

I think I saw Ahmad Jamal play in NYC sometime in 2005 at one of the jazz clubs.  He would have been 75.

It's really annoying that the atu2 forum is censoring a man's name.

Honestly that might have been a better show to see. he rambled endlessly about nothing that had anything to do with the music. we honestly got maybe 45 minutes of music.

Saw Leonard Cohen at his final tour where he was 80 or 81 years old at the time. What made it amazing (other than the music of course) was that it was also the longest concert I've ever been to. The concert lasted 3 hours and beat Springsteens who held the previous record :D. It was one of the best concerts I've been to in my life.

Lionel Richie - 68. MAN that guy is a charismatic performer if ever there was one. His voice, stories, energy were all top notch. His stories were FUNNY. Saw him with Mariah on the All The Hits tour. A few of these people on my lists are obvious just "legacy artists" but wow i'll jump at the chance to see him again.
