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.

Terrible... was Diana Krall actually there?

1.0 star rating Michael from La Conner, WA


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.

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.

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.

1.0 star rating Sean Kelly from Rochester, New York


Went to the show at the Auditorium Theater in Rochester on March 30th. I've been a long time fan since her start and saw her about 22 years ago at Artpark. Right from her first phrase in the first song I knew something was off. Her words were slurred and her performance was not tight. It generally got worse from there where during her first talk with the audience she totally froze and had nothing to say but "well I forgot". The band didn't look happy either. They mostly performed while looking down at the ground. This is a real shame and I don't get it. It seemed as though she was under the influence, or just not wanting to be there, or a combination of both. I wanted to leave mid show, but stayed, but left abruptly before the encore. Truly disappointing.

My wife drove 60 miles and was excited to see Diana for our first time. Out thoughts were this was a terrible concert, the selection of songs was poor, the first 3 songs were unrecognizable and were like ballads that put us to sleep. She spent little time talking and engaging the audience, and was out of sorts. When she did say anything she was very difficult to understand as she talked in incomplete thoughts and spoke so softly she sounded like she was drunk and continued to flip her hair all night. 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. The entire concert, including one song for an encore, lasted 90 minutes. Unfortunately we’ve just read other similar reviews from other recent concerts. We were extremely disappointed, something definitely isn’t right.
