she was terrible, no energy, didn't know the words of songs, walked out about 1/2 hour
into the show.

WHERE WAS DIANA?
My wife and I were so excited to see Diana in concert again.We had seen her at the Fabulous Fox with Chris Botti and what a show. This time is was so disappointing and the only reason we didn't walk out was we kept thinking it will get better. It got worse. She acted like she was a band member instead of the artist. At one point she forgot what she was playing and we had to listen over and over to the band members do their solos. If you are planning on seeing her show you would be better off buying her CD and going to a very nice restaurant. Very expensive tickets for a very disappointing performance.

WE GET IT, YOUR BAND IS TALENTED, WHAT ABOUT YOU?
Orpheum, Saturday night, Memphis TN. VERY underwhelmed and disappointed. Show started 15 minutes late and was essentially a hour and 20 minute jazz jam session with little or no Diana. She DID sing "I've Got You Under My Skin" and "Quiet Nights of Quiet Stars", but that was about it...NO "The Look of Love", "Just the Way You Are", "The Boy From Ipanema", "S'Wonderful", "You Go to My Head", etc, etc...you get it, the songs we ALL wanted to hear. Can I get my $98 back?!@!!?

THIS CONCERT SEEMED TO BE AN AFTER-THOUGHT FOR HER
I really wish she would have acted like she wanted to be there -I kept waiting for her to
belt it out but she remained seated on her piano bench - too many solos from her band,
not enough of Diana. Disappointing.

WORST CONCERT: LOW ENERGY
I'm an avid live music fan. So I've seen dozens and dozens of concerts all over Tulsa. The
PAC is a beautiful, acoustically balanced venue. But... Diana Krall was a complete
disappointment. If we could have scooted out early, we certainly would have. But we
were in the middle of the massively long row. That didn't seem to stop other fans, who
bolted before the scant 80 minute show concluded. The title of her show having "Quiet"
in it wasn't deceiving. You could BARELY hear her band. And they used a very mundane,
routine formula in virtually every single song where she would sing one verse, then each
of the 5 instrumentalists (including the drummer) would launch into a free-form jazz solo.
This was so mind numbing, that you literally FORGOT what song they were performing
when it came time for her to sing the next verse. CRAZY. Love her "recordings", but
absolutely think she is awful live.

DIANA KRALL LIVE CONCERT TRULY DISAPPOINTING
My husband enjoys Diana Krall’s albums and DVD concerts. I excitedly bought tickets to see her perform live, as a gift to him for our 32nd wedding anniversary. However, what we got was truly disappointing. It was more of a jam session by the band that consisted of far too many long and painful back-to-back solos. We paid to see Diana Krall perform and not so much for her to feature her band all night to do back to back solos. Most of the performance was devoted to her band players rather than her. The performance started at least 15 minutes after its scheduled start. Of the time on stage it appeared that less than 20 minutes was her singing and playing the piano. She dedicated much of her time sitting at the bench with her hands folded in her lap as she featured her band. She kept flipping her hair and crossing/uncrossing her legs and appeared to be in a fog. Bottom line: After last night, we will never pay to see her live again. It is retirement time for her!
Jason A. from San Antonio, Texas
I only wish I had seen this page before deciding to go to this....well, I guess you could
call it a Jazz Ensemble. Krall can either not sing very well or decided that she just
wasn't going to. I would have thought maybe there was something wrong (one
person walking out said she might be stoned) but looking at the rest of the reviews
here, I cannot help but think that this is the biggest sham since Milli-Vanilli. Her
band was fantastic, and if I had bought tickets to see them I most likely would have
stayed, but Krall spent most of her time hyping up the band, playing the piano for
short stints (there is some talent there), and mumbling into the microphone... not to
mention she was singing songs she admitted to not knowing the words to AND
asked the audience on multiple occasions if they were going to sing?? I thought that
is what we were paying HER to do. Sorry... I have seen Harry Connick Jr. and Michael
Buble... Krall is no crooner and not in the same league. A real bummer.
