3.0 star rating King John from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania


Steely Dan was fantastic , as expected, but the sound system in Heinz Hall really sucked. The vocals were muffled to the point that the lyrics were usually unintelligible and were totally overshadowed by the instruments - especially the drums, which often drowned out the horn section. I had invited a friend at the last minute because my wife was ill and, although he was familiar with Steely Dan's hits, he could not understand 90% of the lyrics.

3.0 star rating Clem from Richmond, Virginia


Sold out event. Very good. However, yet another year when their Deep Tracks were not played, e.g. Boston Rag and Any World and Everything You Did. All due to lack of having his partner

I’ve been to 4 Dan concerts in last few years. They never play anything off Two Against Nature; favorite album. Why is that? They also hold back on Pretzel Logic and Gaucho. Very disappointing.

While I was really looking forward to this I have to say I was disappointed. Here’s why. The theater was perfect- my seats were great. Unfortunately mr fagans voice was in bad shape this night. But as he said- you have to roll the dice. So that wasn’t the only thing. As a long and loyal dan fan- I found that the songs they decided to play were just to vanilla . They had such a tremendous cast of musicians And could pull off anything , really. I would have liked to hear them play some more stuff from royal scan and Aja ( Jazier) but also after all of these years a little more interpretation of their own music . I really like some of the covers of the steely dan songs - particularly by the jazz crowd, and with the band they have I don’t think it would be much of a challenge to them to experiment a little. They certainly have toured a lot, and for folks like me - I just want a little more from my favorite band ever!

I went to the Steely Dan Show Saturday Night at the Orpheum Theater in Boston. I kept waiting for the pace to pick up. Started by playing the entire Night Fly-Donald Fagen record which put the whole audience into snooze mode. Even the Steely Dan songs that were eventually played were somewhat odd choices. Never really got rockin' in any way. The show was extremely well rehearsed, sounded great, very professional. But I think it left most fans wanting more great Steely Dan songs. Too many solo Fagen songs. Never got the crowd going.

Why put on rock concerts with inferior sound system . Spend some money get some state of the art speakers up high you can't here squat in the balconey. I keep going thinking it will change, never does. That was my last one. Wish I could have heard just how great the band was.

Very muffled sound on vocals. Very disappointed as I paid $99 to see Steely Dan. Great venue, although costly to park.
