Concerts on Canon Return

“We have been so eager to perform for a live audience for two years now,” he told the Courier. “Without an audience, there’s no feedback, there’s no energy.”

After postponing the event for a year due to COVID-19, the City of Beverly Hills kicked off its annual Concerts on Canon summer music series with a performance by local cover band Rod Lightening and the Thunderbolts of Love. The evening show saw crowds come out to Beverly Canon Park in full, filling up rows of chairs, spreading out picnic blankets, and dancing to classic rock tunes.

“The turnout is wonderful tonight. I think you’re seeing built-up demand,” Mayor Robert Wunderlich, who came with his wife, Andrea Spatz, and his golden retriever, Luna, told the Courier. “The Concerts on Canon have been a long time institution in the city and Michael Libow and Rod Lightning and the Thunderbolt of Love, they’ve been regulars here, so it’s a great band to kick off the concert series.”

Band frontman and luxury real estate agent Michael Libow was just as enthusiastic to perform as the crowd was to watch. 

“We have been so eager to perform for a live audience for two years now,” he told the Courier. “Without an audience, there’s no feedback, there’s no energy.”

According to Libow, the band has been playing together for about 16 years, with Libow joining 13 years ago. 

The concert series will take place each Thursday from Aug. 12 to Sept. 9.
