KRALL NOT ENGAGED IN THE PERFORMANCE
My wife and I have been fans of Diana Krall sine 2000 love to listen to her sing; however, this past concert in Sugar Land was very disappointing. She was not engaged and let the band carry her. I bought tickets to listen to her not her bands jam session.

I love Diana's albums. I did not like the live concert. Here band played a lot and she let them jam, which was good. I wanted more of her. Plus the sound was not good. At first I thought it was just me, but my wife thought the same thing and I hear others around me say the same thing as we were leaving. Love the old theater but the sound system was not good.

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.

IS DIANA OK?
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.

DIANA KRALL CONCERT JUNE 6, 2018 SOMEWHAT DISAPPOINTING
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.

GOOD BUT ....
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.

This concert was no "wallflower tour" she barely played anything from that CD, very disappointing,. Her band mates were good but we went to hear her not them, they played more than she sang. This was my 2nd time seeing her and it will be my last as I felt disappointed the first time too but figured she just had an off night. She. Is so much better in my living room than in person. Plus she's a crab to the audience.
