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.... disappointed fan!

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.

DIANA KRALL -- ORDWAY MINNEAPOLIS/ST. PAUL
Ugggh. Complete waste of an evening, sadly, after three rousing performances in past visits to Minneapolis. NO energy ... minimal singing ... too many instrumental solos (did we attend to see Diana or her guitarist and percussionist? they are a fantastic band, trust me, but not why we paid for the tickets...) ... 1:15 total elapsed performance time ... Bottom-line, she looked half asleep (I had binoculars!) and/or on some serious meds. Sad evening all around aside from a great inner pre-show with friends. STAY AWAY and give the ticket money to you favorite charity...

First time I saw Diana Krall and was completely disappointed. I agree with others' assessments - very little singing from Diana, and she looked/acted/sounded bored to tears. In fact, I actually thought she was on some sort of meds, because she barely could finish a sentence in between songs and at one point stopped in the middle of a song to say, "I need a drink of water." Sad to say that we left early, and I couldn't have been more disappointed. Don't bother seeing this show.

SAVE YOUR MONEY, D. KRALL MUST BE BURNT OUT OF PERFORMING
Pros: Carpenter Center, Excellent Seats, Acoustics Outstanding! Cons: At a minimum, Half of the performance was long band member solos, I paid to hear her sing! D. Krall showed no enthusiasm in this performance, either bored or needed to board her jet back to NYC home for late dinner. The concert lasted approx 60 minutes, she might have sang vocals for total 15 minutes. Not what I expected very disappointing. Bottom Line: She obviously has better things to do....these concerts are probably required by recording contracts. Save your money, listen to her pre-recorded music.
