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.

2.0 star rating Carol Aff from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania


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.

2.0 star rating Charlie from Worcester, Massachusetts


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.

2.0 star rating Stephen Godfrey from Wichita, Kansas


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.

2.0 star rating 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.

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.

2.0 star rating 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 performance.
