I saw Diana in concert years ago in Boston, she was FANTASTIC. This show was so very disappointing. She barely sang, and when she did her voice seemed tired and sore. Though I love DIANA and we went to see and hear her. I have loved her music since her first recordings. It appeared that her band was attempting to make up for her inability to carry her own. So much potential and so little delivered. Diana, please tell us what was going on with you last night.

I have been a fan of Diana Krall for many years and was thrilled when I saw that she was coming to Charlotte. The show should have been booked as a Jazz trio with Diana Krall. She didn't sing as much as one would expect. When she did sing, it was often unintelligible. There were times when she seemed confused. There were also times when she seemed to "wake up" and we caught glimpses of the Diana expected. Each of the trio members were very talented, but I did not pay to hear them for what seemed like 3/4 of the show. I'll continue to listen to her recordings, but not attend another live performance.

WHERE’S THE VOICE???
The music was wonderful. Clearly professional musicians who played as a very tight group. I don’t know if it was a technical audio issue or if Diana had an issue with her voice but the overall effect greatly detracted from the quality of the performance. I’ve been a fan of Diana’s unique vocal interpretations of many songs. It was disappointing to miss that part of the performance.

WHAT A DISAPPOINTMENT
Her studio music is awesome..
Her live concert last night in Atlanta ,
If she told to come back for free I wouldn’t go.
She stole her fans money.

My wife and I were beyond disappointed at this evenings performance 04/25/22 at the Kravis Center in West Palm Beach. Echoing what many reviews noted on this site, Ms. Krall seemed utterly detached, disoriented, and borderline incoherent at times during the performance. She forgot her place at one point, the right key at another, and didn't provide leadership for her band on many of the songs. Much of the concert depended on riffs from her excellent guitarist, Anthony Wilson, as well as the bassist and drum musicians, but even here Ms. Krall at times wasn't available to pick up on the cues of when she should enter back into the music. The concert started late which is not a problem in itself, but the sense of disorientation by the leader, and the lack of energy and leadership was so distracting that it became impossible to enjoy. Sadly we wondered if there may have been a medical or substance issue leading to the issues noted; they were that extreme. I'm truly sorry to write such a bad review for such a wonderful musician.

I’m really not sure why Krall is doing concerts. She hardly sang and nearly every song sounded the same. On the odd occasion she spoke it was impossible to make out what she was saying. I felt that she was having a private session with her fellow musicians and we just happened to be there.
She came on very late and offered no reason! I listened to a couple of her songs on the way home and they bore no resemblance to what she put us through last night. My advice is don’t bother going to her gigs.

DIANA KRALL AT KRAVIS
Echo above critiques. Firstl, took the stage 15 minutes late, unheard of at the Kravis Center. She had zero enthusiasm and we left early. Her group, bass, guitar and drums were top drawer, we paid to see her.
