Doobie Brothers were great! Steeley Dan was very boring. Played many songs but none of what the band os famous for. PNC venue was clean and a nice venue. Our group left before the concert was over due to SD selection of music. Disappointed.

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.

First time seeing the Doobie Brothers and they were awesome and sounded great! Very disappointed in Steely Dan. This was the third time seeing them in the past 3 years and they fell totally flat this time and sounded horrible. We left 50 minutes into their show.

We traveled from Chile for the Shoreline arena show. After being a Danhead since Aja it was painfully clear how past it's prime Dan/Fagen are. The set was uninspiring from both setlist and performance angles. Fagen can no longer reach the high notes, and seemingly importantly no longer has Walter Becker keeping things in order. Bearing this in mind he could at least played all the hits, which would have helped to save the day and fought the birefom which settled in early on. Dan's shortfalls were made all the more painfully blatant by The Doobies' joyful exciting, electrifying set. A few more Mike McDonald tracks (at least Minute by minute) would have been lovely but, they saved the day .

We were excited as this has been a bday surprise we’ve been looking forward to celebrating with my daughter. The Doobie brothers were a night saver. They did not disappoint. S.D. Though this was the main event in our view we loved steely therefore we showed up with love and support for the new Steeley Dan band. To my surprise we were reallin in support many Fahd left within 20 minutes of them performing we stuck it out mind you in previous concerts we were the last to leave last night was no different with the exception of sharing our disappointment. Do it again is a staple WHAT how could you. Just broken at the change in the output of songs and lack of sound it was clear the vocals were being drowned out by the drums/bass. Hopeful that steeley Dan will entertain some but for us a total bust. Dobbie brothers your amazing
