Band and venue were great but Diana did not
live up to expectations. She listened to the
band more than she sang. Must be having
relationship problems because all songs were
unhappy. I wondered a couple times if she had
a drink too many before the concert. Lyrics and
commentary seemed to fade off occasionally.
Save your money an buy a CD.
Betty Hall from Lubbock, Texas
Very disappointed. This was supposed to be the highlight of our 37th wedding
anniversary but the concert was not at all what we expected. Krall’s voice did not sound
good and she hardly played the piano, relying instead on the band. The band was good
but we came to hear Diana Krall. The solos became repetitive and it seemed as if Krall
was distracted and not really present. We did have a lovely dinner at Piccolo Mondo with
some dear friends prior to the concert. Perhaps Krall was ill?

TO MUCH WALKING THE DOG
Great venue. Short show. Not alot of enthusiasm from Diana. She could of played and
sang more of her standards. The band was very good but to mcuh time was spent wih
individual solos. The violin started out interesting but by the end of the show it
sounded like screeching. For $135/ticket we'll buy her next CD and go out to dinner.

WHERE WAS DIANA?
Although not a super-fan of Diana Krall, I anticipated an enjoyable evening
with friends, listening Diana actually sing and play her well-known songs,
ACCOMPANIED by her stage musicians. With the exception of this talented
ensemble, there was nothing at all pleasing about this disingenuous
performance. Instead, we witnessed an amateurish execution with incoherent
mumbling, unfinished sentences, and an overall disengaged demeanor, which
was an insult to her audience. Much of her time was spent sitting at the bench
with hands folded in lap as she featured her band. I don't know if she
intentionally omitted most of the lyrics of her song "Temptation", or simply
forgot them. Is she weary of performing live, unable to hit the notes [limited
range to begin with], fulfilling a concert obligation by merely putting in her
time, or simply does not care? Her fans deserve better. This concert is not
worth the price of admission.

DIANA’S BAND WAS GREAT
Still waiting on Diana to preform.... love
listening to her on Amazon Alexa, however,
save your money. Diana was a “ No Show”....
Obvious instrumental solos to kill time, no
banter, basically was there to collect a check....

15 JUNE 18 - VERY DISAPPOINTING PERFORMANCE
My wife and I love Diana Krall’s voice and
interpretations of classic songs and standards.
We excitedly bought tickets to hear her sing -
what we got was a short, discordant fusion jam
session by the band that consisted of far too
many instrumental solos and an overly long
painful back to back solos by the guitarist and
“fiddler” reminiscent of an an adaptation of
Jimi Hendrix “Are You Experienced” - not at all
characteristic of her portfolio of wonderful
music. Of the ~ 75 minutes on stage - less than
20 minutes were singing. I guess we should
have tried to look at early reviews but we left
feeling cheated and had just sat through some
kind of rehearsal instead of a performance we
paid a lot of money to see. Bottom line:
started late, ended early, seemed very
disorganized and she was going through the
motions and not a part of the performance.
After last night, most likely will never see her in
concert again such a shame since her voice is
so much better live than in studio.
Stick with the over-produced albums from Appleton, Wisconsin
Not sure if Diana was drunk, or on heavy meds, or doesn't care about her fans, but
please pull her from the touring circuit. The lower half of her limited vocal range
was gone, the higher range was unpleasant vowel stabbing, the rest was incoherent
mumbling. Speaking sentences were left unfinished, lyrics often forgotten, it was as
though she didn't even know when to come back in to sing out a song. Piano solos
were nice, but repetitive and lacked any spark. She was insecure, confused as to
show order, and acted like this was her first time on stage. The early self-deprecating
jokes were cute, but got old after 20 minutes. We were looking at our watches at 45,
and thankful for the show's end at 90 minutes. Then she came back for a near-20-
minute encore (why) in which she woke up a bit and seemed to realize she was in a
concert hall with an audience. Repertoire was a balanced mix from her albums, and
the band covered for her complete lack of engagement with us or them.
