The first show we've been to with no programs, selling T-shirts from 2012, doors opening late, show starting late. There was an odd exchange of comments, and some forgotten lyrics. She seemed lost in one number. She relied heavily on the band to get her through the show. Perhaps there were a few too many drinks before the performance? Something was off. She did settle in by the end of the set and gave a stunning encore.

3.0 star rating Dave from Aurora, Illinois


Disappointed. Read previous reviews and many seemed to have same thoughts as our party of 4. Less musicians, although they were good, and more of Diana. . Would have loved to hear Cry me a River and her main songs. Has she lost her passion to perform? She seemed lapsdaisical and we expected more energy and connection to audience. Should be advertised as Diana Krall Quartet if she has changed to no longer being the main attraction and now a jazz band. It was nice of her to give her musicians the floor. We had to get over the expectation that We came to hear her.

I wish Diana sang a few more songs. The ones she sang at the beginning of the show were enjoyable, but I guess I expected more, maybe some of her hits later in the show. But she did not. Aside from her beautiful piano playing, the only spark for me was the violin player. When I saw him walk out on stage, I thought to myself, he looks like Stuart Duncan, a well known bluegrass fiddle player. To my surprise, it was him, and he played some awesome, jazzy licks. So now I'm even more impressed with Stuart Duncan and his musicianship than ever before! My husband liked the guitar playing.

3.0 star rating Alain from Ottawa, Ontario


Diana was amazing when she performed and every member of the band as well. But... she did not perform enough. Too much solos and emphasis on each member. In the encore, Diana sang more which is what I was expecting for the whole concert. Very disapointed and did not feel I got my money’s worth.

3.0 star rating Hugh Byas from Hartford CT


A fan, the best part of Diana Krall's 2022 show in Hartford was her band and her pianism. She either had a cold or her voice has substantially declined. She also sang two Sinatra standards-- All the Way and I Got You under My Skin-- but brought nothing to do them. Perhaps no one can. She remains enormously likable and still connects with her audience.

We’ve been following Diana for year and this was our second concert in Atlanta. Four(ish) years ago it was amazing: Diana “the boss” did It all: played, sang and led an amazing band on jamming, having and providing a lot of fun! Yesterday (04/20/2022) there was something missing: Diana herself! She was still the maestro of the great band, but did not engage neither as a singer nor as a pianist. Her signing was insecure, avoiding higher notes and even felt out of key a couple of times. Her piano playing simply avoided the faster creative improv lines that she is capable of doing… we left the concert with mixed feelings: a little more than an hour of great music with great musicians, but only a good Diana. There is somehow going on with her. Hope she can figure it out soon. We miss “da boss”!

3.0 star rating Noelle Smith from Atlanta, Georgia


Krall was charming and a talented songstress. She never sang a hit that we were familiar with and featuring the band was uninteresting to me . Also the venue should not allow video and cameras . So distracting . We paid so much for our evening and we’re terribly disappointed in this concert and will not attend another Dianna Krall concert or one at this venue .
