I can only think that the negative reviews here are from people with absolutely no musical knowledge, and probably listen to one or two songs off of every album they've ever owned. Steely Dan has never been about "hits", although they always throw in some radio play songs for those who don't bother listening to entire collections. This is a band of world class musicians, if you take the time to read individual bios, you would find that they all have played and recorded with many huge names in the industry. These are "go to " musicians for a lot of your "hit makers". To have this collection of talent on one stage is nothing short of incredible, and if you can't understand it, maybe you just shouldn't go to a top shelf show such as this. Stick with the 3 chord, 4/4 time standard radio crap. I don't want to discourage anyone from expanding their musical horizons, just disappointed with the lack of credit given here to a band that is head and shoulders above most.

I had lawn seating at the Hollywood Casino Amphitheater. It was raining all day and would possibly during the concert. Got there and they were giving out tickets to the pavilion seating 101 section in exchange of my lawn seating tickets. Exchanged my tickets and got great seating. Thanks, Hollywood Casino. 5 Stars) The Doobie Brothers came on first and Rocked the house from beginning to end. Then played an encore. Great concert! 3 Stars) Steely Dan played second. Sad to say. Every song had a jazzy flavor that was not to my liking and changed the essence of my favorite songs of Steely Dan . Had to leave. Heard enough of the Jazzed up renditions of their music. I was disappointed.

The Dan always leaves fans refreshed and looking forward to the next concert, and the Doobie Brothers delivered at least as well. What a perfect combo for a night out under a very comfortable Texas sky. The Toyota Music Factory is an awesome venue, and we personally witnessed many fans from far away make the trek into DFW to enjoy two of the greatest bands of all time. So hard to believe that Becker has passed on, but as Don Fagen said, "we'll carry on". Not sure who the bigger fans are nowadays as 30 something children enjoyed as much as the parents at our house, and the burger at the Yard House was as good as they come. Now for the sound quality. Great acoustics right off the bat. The Doobie Brothers started off just a slight bit too loud, but that was quickly adjusted, and the weather for the lawn was totally perfect, especially after the sunset. The Music Factory personnel were attentive and helpful, so the whole experience gets an A+ from my crew. LOVE AND AWESOMENESS!

Saw The Dan & The Doobies last night at Pine Knob aka DTE Energy (blah blah it mean Detroit Energy Energy it'll Always be Pine Knob!) The Doobies kicked it out! Fagen seemed just a li'l tired last nite. It was such a great show and a perfect nite - until 10 pm when the rain came. Can anyone tell me if Fagen mentioned Becker? I must've missed it. Wasn't the same without Walter. Pine Knob is a great place for an outdoor show. Usually we sit on the lawn. There were a lot of very young people there and they were jammin' WOW! An infant was right next to us and she had such a great time! Very nice area and nice view of the skiing hill right behind the stage area.

Totally agree with some prior reviewers - Doobies Yay! Fagan Nay! The Doobies were spot on and actually sounded better than anticipated. Steely Dan band was adequate and the songs sounded vaguely familiar, but Fagan was often off-key and struggling to keep up. You know you're old when your rock stars start looking like Grandpa... And sounding like him too!

5.0 star rating Bruce Polakoff from West Palm Beach, Florida


The Doobie Brothers started promptly st 7:30 and As anticipated ROCKED the house. An 80 minute set included all of their Top 40 hits with the exception of Michael McDonald tunes ( The DID play “Takin’ It To The Streets )”). The crowd was enthusiastic and by the closing number everyone was on their feet. Steely Dan was incredible, as usual. Although I am jaded ( this was my 16th time seeing them ) their performance was near flawless. Both bands are have members near 70 years old! Geriatric Rocking is NOT DONE IN CHAIRS!
