DOOBIES AND STEELY DAN TORONTO

Doobies were ok, music was a bit muddled but the olde standards were there and a chance to see along. Steely Dan were in good form. The music was tight and fresh. This group didn’t miss a beat. It was a beautiful evening by the lake. The breeze was blowing...

STEELY DAN THE SUMMER OF LIVING DANGEROUSLY

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.

DOOBIES ROCKED FAGAN CLOCKED

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!

DOOBIE BROTHERS GREAT 5 STARS, STEELY DAN 3-STARS

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.

DOOBIE BROTHERS WERE WORTH THE PRICE

The Doobie Brothers were great: sang all the best songs, sounded fantastic, seemed genuinely happy to be performing. Steely Dan was bizarre: Fagan seemed to be up there playing whatever he wanted, jamming out with his buds while ignoring the hits we came to hear. For the Doobies? A five-star rating. For Steely Dan, maybe three stars for the musicianship onstage.

THE DOOBIES ARE AS GOOD OR EVEN BETTER THAN EVER.

The ticket price was worth it for The Doobies alone. They played and jammed throughout their show all of the hits I loved since 1972, when I was 10. Eyes of Silver, China Grove, Rockin down the Highway, South City Midnight Lady, Without Love, Black Water, and more. I was thrilled to finally see them after all this time. Great guitar and sax jams, and an old time stage show and audience appreciation. Reminded me of the good ole days. Steely Dan, for me, was unbearable. Just not my thing. I’m so glad I went, The Doobies are timeless.

STEELY DAN STOLE THE SHOW

The show started right on time with the Doobie Brothers. Since I'm a Michael McDonald fan, I found the vocals lacking. The overall sound of the group (maybe due to the sound system?) was rough and kind of repetitive. However, once Steely Dan took the stage, the night was transformed! Judging by some of the reviews from last year, they must have upped their game because it was one hit after another! Donald Fagan was spot on as was the brass quartet and the lead guitar. Perfectly in tune, perfectly in sync...the sound transports you to another time while not sounding the least bit dated. The main downside of the night was it was overall TOO LOUD. Come on people, we are not deaf (at least we weren't before the concert!) Music should not hurt. Turn down the sound system, Key Arena.
