I'm not surprised to see a 5ft11 claim.

Nice guy. Great performer. Seen him in concert 3x, front row seats and I would say he's 5'9 and maybe 5'9 1/2 - 5'10 at his peak. He has poor posture so that doesn't help.

A friend of mine saw him in Sydney back in the summer and met him. She is around 5'8" and said he is only about the same height as her.

He always looked 5' 9" to me.

Bolton at 6ft?
Mr. R said on 1/Mar/15
I remember when he started he was listed at 6 feet.

Stood next to him in a restaurant in Century City once. Dude was like 5'5" with cowboy boots on.

Wore big heavy metal boots when I saw his band in '79, hard to pin down but I'd say more than 5' 9.5" with ease back then. They played the same dumps Twisted Sister played in Connecticut and Westchester County N.Y..

Agreed with the previous comment about his height being difficult to identify. Though he looks shorter than Samberg in some parts of the video, at the beginning they appear to be the same height. I would say the 5'9.5 listing is likely accurate, maybe a little shorter. He's clearly taller than 5'8" Jorma Taccone though, so any claims of that height are quashed. Given he's in his fifties he has likely lost a bit of height-was possibly close to 5'11" at peak.

I find Bolton's height to be really hard to pin down. At the beginning of the Jack Sparrow short, he appears slightly shorter than Samberg, yet through the rest of the video that height difference is larger. Then I came across this photo. Click Here
The woman he's next to, Delta Goodrem, is listed at 5'10" on CelebHeights. We cannot see her feet, but I find it hard to believe she isn't wearing heels. Does this confuse anyone else?

In the video he just did with Thelonelyisland, he is visibly shorter than Samberg who is listed around 5'9.5/10. Granted you don't really see them standing still right next to each other, you can tell he is shorter.
[Editor Rob: in that brief clip he did look like he was shorter than andy.]

5'8 MAX. I saw him at Lola in cleveland, he looked like a jockey.

He was in one episode of "The Nanny". He's barely shorter than 6'0 Charles Shaughnessy. Michael is 5'11 (180 cm), definitely!
Cat Stevens said on 5/May/07
No way he's more than 5'8, NO WAY!see his pics for God's sake

He is on Oprah today... and is nearly the same exact height as oprah. I didn't get a look at oprahs heels but if she is 5'6 and lets say wearing 3 inch heels than he couldn't be more than 5'9

I met Michael Bolton in a hotel in london about 10 years ago.I would be suprsied if he is over 5'7.I was shocked as I always thought he was a really tall guy!.
TheMan said on 19/Jan/06
Yeah got to agree with you guys deffently over 5,9 i think.
Brett said on 18/Jan/06
Interesting, both me and Glenn say he is more then the listed height, 5'9" is too stingy , thats for sure
[Editor Rob: hey, you both agree! Actually I can see a raise here looking at more pics...I think the tennis pic, there was another one where he didn't look quite this short...but I don't trust this guy's feetwear]

I saw Michael Bolton in the Kahala Mandarin Oriental hotel in Oahu, around xmas time, and I would say that he is actually closer to 5'10" then 5'9", probably 177cm tall, it was quite amazing that people just left him alone and didnt bother him at all

Hearing Michael Bolton sing and not knowing what he looked like, you'd say he was probably six feet four, and black. I was mortified to learn he was a midget at only 5' 9.
