Diana Krall and her world-class musicians performed an exquisite set Saturday evening
at the Kauffman Center for Performing Arts. Krall was funny and entertaining, but her
voice and piano skills were the highlight of the evening; I had the extra gift of being
seated where I could see her hands, which added a visual component to the marvelous
sounds. The jazz guitarist and "fiddler" were nothing short of amazing. So glad I was
there to witness this special event!

DAVIS SYMPHONY HALL
My 3rd time seeing Diane Krall. Each show is
as special with the changing artistic singing,
piano playing the 4 piece band that was so
Will not be my last shoe, looking forward to
Seating is very good here too.
Jim from Minneapolis, Minnesota
Her voice, and piano playing, combined with an
excellent band was simply wonderful.
Paul Stewart from Nashville, Tennessee
GREAT PERFORMANCE BY ALL
Diana was wonderful as were all the musicians and the symphony. If anyone knows the name of the violinist that played with Diana please share, his playing was an unexpected and very welcome surprise. I would like to see more of him.
Doug H from Charlotte, North Carolina
My wife and I came to listen Diane Krall sing, what we got was the Band; was the
featured act! The band was great! We enjoyed non the less but really wanted to hear
Diane sing more!
Dave & laurie from Washington, District of Columbia
THIS GIRL CAN PLAY!!
Our first time seeing Diana Krall. was a little disappointed at first when only 4 other
musicians came out with her but they proved me wrong with performance,
especially Anthony Wilson the guitar player who played 4 or 5 different guitars.
Diana is an amazing piano player!!. I had a perfect view to watch her fingers move
along the keys like a hot knife thru butter. In a couple of the slow low key songs, you
could hear a pin drop, which was awesome considering the amount of wine drinking
lawn patrons. Oh, did I mention the violin player?......WOW! LOVED the whole show
but would have liked a couple more up beat tunes. Still love you Diana!
Ernst Bakerquist from Oklahoma City, Oklahoma
The wife and I loved this show. Diana with a world class band...what's not to love?
We did hear some hardcore fans complaining in the lobby, although most of it was "...didn't sing my favorite song(s), so this wasn't good...."
Lighting, staging, and performance...all top notch.
My biggest complaint was the idiot (and wife) who decided to fire up a phablet during one song, and talk out loud about whatever was on the screen. An usher finally had them cease and desist, but they
ruined nearly the entire song for everyone near them.
Dave from Aurora, Illinois
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.
John from Houston, Texas
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.
Nancy Graham from Louisville, Kentucky
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.
from Appleton, Wisconsin
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.
Rmoqs from Wichita, Kansas
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.
Alain from Ottawa, Ontario
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.
Jay Robison from Saginaw, Michigan
Disappointed.As others have stated ,she
didn't sing even the minimum that my wife
and I had expected. There is a tremendous
amount of talent between all the musicians
and of course Dianna the lead vocalist. They
didn't really perform as a "band". It was
more like a tune up session. I am guessing
she wasn't feeling well by the amount of
Solo's she had her band mates perform. I
hope is feeling better for her next
Stephen Godfrey from Wichita, Kansas
DIAMA KRALL CONCERT WICHITA, KANSA
Much to short of a program. Kept flipping her hair and crossing and uncrossing her
legs. Didn't act like she was even with the program.
More time devoted to her band players than her singing. We came to hear Diana
Krall not her band. Over half of her time on stage, which was short, was devoted to
her band members and not her performance. Certainly not worth what we paid for
tickets Amazing performances by there base player, drummer, violinist & guitarist
was fantastic. BUT...came to hear Ms. Krall not these gentlemen.
D Dennis from Indianapolis, Indiana
We had seen Dianna perform before & loved it, as a solo act. This time,
she had a trio with her, which is fine, but we came to & paid to see her
perform, not the trio. Too much time & attention was given to the trio &
not enough time was spent with Dianna doing what she does best -
singing & playing. It was difficult at times to even understand what she
was saying/singing, had we not been familiar with the songs. For the
money we paid to see her, we were very disappointed. So were the
other 6 guests that attended that we knew. The event was sold out,
which I'm not surprised of but I feel sure that most of the attendees, if
polled, would feel exactly the way we did. Our seats were wonderful &
to make a full evening, we had dined at a nearby restaurant. Our
anticipation level was up there based on her past performances so
sadly, we walked away dissatisfied & disappointed.
CE from Des Moines, Iowa
20% SINGING 80% JAZZ SOLOS
Diana Krall seemed to not be healthy for this concert. The concert started at least 15
minutes after its scheduled start. She was drinking water every chance she got on stage.
The microphone she used must have bothered her because she fussed with it the entire
show. Her singing seemed tired and almost 80% of the concert was instrumental when I
was expecting her singing. The audience was also very bothersome. Many people had
phones out and ushers could not catch them. People around us talked almost non-stop
and I had to ask them to stop or I would get an usher. She did the most singing in the
encore two numbers. Otherwise this concert was a jazz ensemble with lots of great solos
from the violinist and guitar. Diana’s solos were harmonically interesting, but her rhythm
section was not impressive. The bassist and drummer did not seem to mesh with what
the group was doing. This was not what I expected and I was disappointed.
J Jenkins from Orlando, Florida
DR. PHILLIPS PERFORMING ARTS CENTER- ORLANDO FLORIDA
Extremely Disappointing. I went to see her perform some of her songs,
but all I heard was jazz rides from her band on mostly every song. They
were good, but taking rides on every song was a bit much. It was all
jazz musicians and very little Diana. She may have sung two songs. She
seemed like she was going through the motions. I'm glad she only did
about 1 1/2 hours. Miserable selection of songs and performance. I
was ready to get out of there. I was so looking forward to seeing her.
Charlie from Worcester, Massachusetts
KRALL INSTRUMENTAL CONCERT
Enough already. We came to the Hanover in Worcester Ma. to hear her belt out the
songs and ended up listening to the backup base and drums as the feature She was not
connecting to the audience and appeared to be only partially present . Too artsy for me.
Been to several of her concerts but won't be back.
W West from Charlotte, North Carolina
ON SECOND THOUGHT....
I looked over her career and realized why she has NEVER reduced to CD her "jazz
ensemble" playing and there is a reason why; NO ONE WOULD BUY IT!
I attended her concert last night in Charolette and she did not/would not sing. She
a great review of her band (not what anyone came to see at all); false advertising if ever
I saw it. "I cried a river over you" was my thoughts after attending. Let's have a show of
hands on how many people want a refund. If you had advertised that you were
showing off your band, I would have paid 20 dollars not 400 dollars. Fraud and terribly
disappointing. If you think your public who made you millions wants to hear a jazz
instrumental night of music for you to make 1 million plus, think again.
Anonymous from Boston, Massachusetts
L AND M
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
Dee from Santa Barbara, California
DISAPPOINTED / WALLFLOWER TOUR
Love , Love Diana Krall. That said . At the Santa Barbara Bowl she sang one song from her
latest release Wallflower. The encore song was O Canada, nothing against Canada, but
California Dreamin' would have been more appropriate. Sorry I left at O Canada. The
ensemble of musician's was incredible, but I paid to hear her. My husband has been very ill
so this was a special night out . We listen to her Wallflower release all the time . Just very
disappointed it was represented that way. Still love her , but will stay home next time .
Wayne Henderson from Dallas, Texas
My daughter and I went to see Diana perform, but it was mostly her guitarist that saved the show. I think she was not feeling well - her voice was raspy, off key and just not very good. I had high hopes it would be like her "evening in Paris" concert, but it was not to be. If you can't perform, you should cancel the gig and offer refunds.
GH from Kansas City, Missouri
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....
Carol Aff from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
NOT ENOUGH DIANA
There was very little of the Krall vocalization,
which we came to see and hear. The band
was excellent but they should have been
supporting her performance, not the feature
act. Ms Krall seemed to stumble through the
performance, almost seeming confused. This
did not measure up to her show at the Mann
a couple of years ago.
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.
Ruth Rosado from Round Rock, Texas
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!
Cristy C. from Fayetteville, Arkansas
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.
Carol from Austin, Texas
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.
Downtowner in Tulsa from Tulsa, Oklahoma
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.
J. Leisure from St. Louis, Missouri
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.
from Appleton, Wisconsin
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.
Holly from Louisville, Kentucky
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.
JD Duncan from Memphis, TN
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?!@!!?
from Kansas City, Missouri
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.
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.
Greyskull from St. Louis, Missouri
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.
Brandon Scott from Louisville ky
A great artist but we walked away disappointed.
Her band carried her but she did Not seem interested in being there
Said Sorry and oh sh*t - which was not very professional
Will not go to her concert again
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?
Jeff Holker from Minneapolis, Minnesota
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...
Scotty from Calgary, Alberta
Went to see her and she didn't play half the show.
Didn't go to see her band. she seemed very out of it
And not wanting to be there. She didn't play the
piano much. It was worst concert ever. Wouldn't
ever go see her again.
Went to the Guild for supper prior to the concert,
which is great restaurant food was terrific.
R F F from Richmond, Virginia
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.
Joe from Boston, Massachusetts
AWFUL, WASTED NIGHT OUT
she was terrible, no energy, didn't know the words of songs, walked out about 1/2 hour
into the show.
Michael T. from Fort Myers, Florida
PAST PERFORMANCES ARE NOT INDICATIVE OF FUTURE PERFORMANCE
One word: Disappointing!
This is the third time we have seen her, and this is the worst performance we have seen. They played less
than an hour and 20 minutes, she played ONE well known song, Temptation, and she sang very little.
If I were considering seeing this tour I would tell you to save your money for the next tour that may be better.
Her other two shows we have seen were fantastic, this was a huge let down.
Our seats were ok, I would have preferred to be on the floor. Not a show for kids... talking will get you the evil
eye from the granny next to you.
Diana - hoping the next tour is better than this...
G.Morrison from Charlotte, North Carolina
Disappointing! Loved hearing Diana singing and playing the piano, but
it was mostly her band playing. They were good, but it was way too
many instumental solos. She also acted like her hands were hurting
and also said ouch during her performance. We had a great dinner at
The Capital Grille and excellent seats. I will not pay the price to see her
Evania from Orlando, Florida
First concert ever that I wanted a refund. Came to hear her sing...her band got more play than
her vocals. Too many solos for drums, bass, violin. Have all her albums and first time seeing her.
So many people left early....so disappointing.
Cheande. from Boston, Massachusetts
We’ve been wanting to see her for years. Got
tickets for the show at the Chevalier Theatre in
Medford Ma....the theatre: that’s another story!
She was 25 minutes late...didn’t know where
she was...very disoriented...seemingly
incoherent...could not remember the lyrics to
her songs...jumped around like she didn’t have
a plan. I don’t know how her musicians kept up
with her erratic behavior. We left an hour into
the performance...very disappointing!
Elena from Fort Lauderdale, Florida
FANTASTIC IN SPOTIFY AND TIDAL, NOT IN LIVE PERFORMANCE
Perhaps its time to listen to her just via Spotify or Tidal. We spent $1000 to go and listen
to her singing along with the group. Instead, we listened to her group trying to carry
songs for more than 10 minutes, getting tired from music that was improvised as they
were playing along and most of the times bad. If she didn't feel like performing, she
should have cancelled the show. This is the 2nd and last time we had the experience
with Diana Krall. Two years ago, in the summer, we had the chance to see her
performing in an open theatre in Juan Lepins, in Southern France. We left 40 minutes
after the beginning of the performance. Maybe, we got unlucky twice, but we definitely
will not take the chance for a third time.
Alma from La Mirada, California
We bought tickets to the Diana Krall concert at Segerstrom Hall, Costa Mesa on Nov. 4,
2018. We were expecting to hear Diana Krall sing. What we got was a group of musicians
doing a jam session meanwhile the singer just stared at them, flipped her hair and
moved her feet constantly. She hardly sung. She looked and sounded spaced out. Her
speech was slurred. Her sentences were left unfinished. We kept waiting for her to snap
out of it, but it just was a waste of time and money. We just attended a $400 concert,
our very worst concert ever! She has such beautifully recorded songs and voice. Too bad
she can't perform anymore. The highlight of that night for us was having dinner and
listening to a great band in the outdoor area before the concert. Her reviews on
costamesatheater com show that too many of her fans have experienced the same
behavior and felt it was a complete waste of their money. Segerstrom Hall is a beautiful
venue, we have attended great concerts in the past
David from Portland, OR
WHAT HAS HAPPENED TO DIANNA?
My wife and I flew down to OC from Portland to see DK at Segertrom - third time seeing her.
She was out of sorts, distant and not engaged with the audience at all. When she tried any
interaction it was with incomplete thoughts, flipping of her hair and “oh well”. Her backup trio
was outstanding but to hear them play for 75% of the evening with her sitting and staring at
them was not what we paid to see.
Probably last time seeing her live.........
Scott from Salt Lake City, Utah
Terrible... was Diana Krall actually there?
Lisa Johnson from Salt Lake City, Utah
NOT THE SHOW I WAS EXPECTING
I love Diana’s voice and piano skills and had no idea that it was going to be her with a band. That was not advertised here in SLC when I bought the tickets. I agree with others. I was disappointed to hear her band members solo with very little Diana. The tunes she did sing just with the piano were marvelous and intimate but I didn’t attend to hear her sax and guitar player jam all night. Didn’t get my money’s worth.
Michael from La Conner, WA
A NIGHT WITH DIANA’S STUDIO MUSICIANS
Horrible. Bought tickets for my wife’s birthday. She loves Diana Krall. We went to the 9/15/19 show in Bellingham, WA.
Every ‘song’ was basically one verse from Diana, followed by a 5-6 minute ‘riff’ by each of the four musicians.
When Diana sang, it was pretty bad.
When she spoke in between songs, it was a rather incoherent stream of semi-consciousness.
She reminded us of her band mates’ names at least 6 times.
I realized about 1/2 way through the show that all of the ‘songs’ were the same tempo; same beats per minute. Which felt like it was accommodating the musicians - the riffs even became repetitive.
We were dead center in the row, or else we would have left after 10 minutes. It never got better.
I’ve never felt ripped off by a performer until the night I saw Diana Krall. She really should have turned over all the receipts to her four musicians.
I couldn’t help thinking of that scene in This is Spinal Tap after Nigel left and the remaining band couldn’t fill a set list.
Denise Bere from Salt Lake City, Utah
TOO MANY SOLOS, NOT ENOUGH SINGING
Very disappointed by this concert. Started 20 minutes late. A lot of band member solos and very little singing from Diana Krall. She seemed bored to be there and it was difficult to understand what she was saying when she rarely addressed the audience. Not a good concert. Expected more from Ms Krall.
JFP from Seattle, Washington
We've been big, big fans of Diana for many years and this was to be our first chance to see her in person. There was an opening act...did not know that. Then we had to wait a half hour after he left and Diana came on. Diana just jammed with her band - not really singing - for 45 minutes until thunder and lightning cancelled the show. Oh, I did not mention the drunks behind us. I should have read reviews of her past concerts which are consistent with our experience.
Big dad from San Jose, California
I saw here at the Mountain winery, saratoga, ca with a group of 8. Same experience as many of the other reviewers. It was mostly a jam session with her sidemen. She seemed uncomfortable. We thought that it was due to the outdoor night chill. Now I know that we experienced what other audiences did as well. This is not the Diana were heard on record.
Angle & Timo from San Jose, California
WHAT A DISAPPOINTMENT
Mountain Winery - Saratoga, CA. Beautiful evening and venue but the show stopped there. We came to see the talented Diana Krall but what we experienced was a 30 minute late singer who seemed to be more engaged with a disorienting substance then with her audience. There was a lot of fussing and flipping her hair and often idle piano keys. EVERY song was dominated by her musicians solo's which was not what we paid to see.. She seemed to be off in space and not too interested in performing many of the songs that made her so popular. She offered very little interaction with her audience. At one point her Guitarist was conferring with the Saxophonist to figure out how to fill the gap in her performance. We left after an hour into the show and joined several others also on our way to the parking lot...Our ticket cost in Section 21 for two seats was +$400 and the experience was beyond subpar! This morning I read several similar reviews from other shows that she has recently performed and it blows me away that she is not reading the same!! Unfortunately, this was wasted time we can never get back!!!

OK, the musicians themselves were great but this seemed like a rambling, repetitive jam session with almost no singing and a generally incoherent Diana Krall who couldn't seem to string together a sentence or have much idea what she was going to do. She didn't sing much, never got up from her piano bench and had no stage presence. I don't understand how the SJ Mercury News raved about her performance when most people jetted to the parking lot before her encore and applause was generally limp at best. Aside from the beautiful weather, this was an evening (and a couple of hundred bucks) wasted.
