DIANA KRALL.

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.... 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.

REMARKABLY DISAPPOINTING

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...
