Left after the Doobies were done... Our ears were painfully ringing. Having
said that - they were a fun show - played the songs that got the audience on
their feet - and lots of crowd interaction. They know their stuff - but seemed
distorted - at least for the first 1/2 of the show... Please also note: Lots of
audience gets up and heads to the beer counters throughout the show at this
venue. Then they return to seats - then back up for more beer - then back...
YOU are up and down, letting them in/out too....

WHAT’S UP WITH DONALD FAGEN?
Let me start with the ***** rating I give the Doobies. Could not have been better, those
guys are ageless and they brought on the hits and the audience to its feet.
On the other hand, Steely Dan indulged in playing obscure songs sprinkled with a few
hits in between. Mr. Fagen is quite the genius and I am sure he misses Mr. Becker.
Maybe there is a legal reason for the paucity of hits played or maybe he just didn’t want
to. It was a real disappointment to not hear Deacon Blues, Reeling in the Years, Rikki and
many others that I so wanted them to play.
I would love to know from the band if there was an actual reason for this, it would be
more understandable and forgivable.

DOOBIE BROTHERS SHOULD A BEEN THE HEADLINERS
Saw at Denver Pepsi Center. Doobie Brothers rocked the house......people out of their seats
singing& dancing in aisles. They sounded GREAT !!!L. Steely Dan however was a yawnfest. We
left about 30 mins after they started playing & once outside saw that A TON of others were
leaving in the middle of their set too. Just boring..,every damn song sounded the same.
Cannot figure out how EVER Steely Dan was the headliner group. They were just OK at best.
Had they warmed up for the Doobie Bros, as they should have, people would have stayed for
the entire show & left happy & still singing. Would not ever pay to see Steely Dan again.Give
the Doobies 5 stars, Steely Dan 5 yawns

DOOBIE BROTHERS AND STEELY DAN MAY 11 RALEIGH CONCERT
Doobie Brothers played and played outstanding music and songs everyone knew
and loved -- Michael McDonald was not missed (in my estimation), proving once
again that everyone is indispensible BUT... The HIGHLIGHT of the evening was
Donald Fagen and his musicians -- Of course they played the favorites -- Are there
Steely Dan tunes that are NOT favorites? There was NOT one 'Tired Sea Song'
among the bunch and after watching a LOT of people leave BEFORE the show was
over (in COMPLETE disbelief!), the group finished up and THEN returned to play
Reelin' In the Years -- AWESOME! S.D.'s musicians are TOP FLIGHT and Donald is just
AMAZING -- I guess there are FANS and then there were the rest... Ah well...
Oh... With the number of people under the overhead roof, it could have been HOT
but fans kept a GREAT breeze going - We had GREAT seats!

STEELEY DAN WAS CONFUSED
So excited to see Doobie Brothets and Steely
Dan at Key Arena
Doobie Brothers were pretty amazing.
Steely Dan on the othet hand seemed
confused on what to sing. People come to
see older bands to sing along with the hits.
Yeah that didn't happen. Many people
started leaving by about the fifth song
including us. What songs were they singing?
Neil from Newcastle-upon-Tyne, England
Travelled up from Kissimmee to Jacksonville see two of my favourite groups with my family. We were on holiday from England. Disappointed on two fronts. No Michael McDonald - I was looking forward to hear him singing. Secondly the sound production for Steely Dan was poor. The band are very good with some brilliant musicians, but they were drown out by the bass and drums. The sound guy was on the stage to the side and should have been out front with the audience. Consequently several of the audience got up and left half way through.

GREAT MUSIC, LOW ENERGY CROWD
Maybe the run of 70s legends is coming to a close. The Doobie Bros
started off rough, with an abrasive sound mix that came under control
as the set warmed up. The band worked hard to bring up the energy
of the crowd and you could feel it as the Bros closed with a string of
their most memorable hits. Black Water was especially fun. Steely Dan
(ie Donald Fagan) displayed their extroadinary musicianship, but the
energy died. Crowd up front was planted in their seats, complaining to
the few to sit down. Security prevented fans from filling empty seats
up front. Oh well. We cannot stay 18 forever.
