2.0 star rating from New Haven, Connecticut


We have enjoyed the music of Pink Martini for quite sometime and when we saw they would be performing LIVE at the Shubert in New Haven we jumped at the opportunity to get tickets. But sadly we were disappointed with their performance and would most likely not go see them again. Wish they sang more and talked less. It was difficult to understand Thomas' chatter and we didn't appreciate the constant pitch of their political views. They should have played more of their "classic" songs, the ones that made them famous. Not a tribute to Helen Reddy "I Am Woman" and Dolly Parton's "9 to 5"! Really??! Come'on people... not at these prices. China Forbes seemed bored and they gave too much attention and song time to their guest "Ari Sapiro" from NPR. On a positive note, the musicians in the band were phenomenal.

Saw Pink Martini 2 years here and loved the show!!! we were excited to see them again. BUT.... last night???? disappointed in the show last night. more talking than performing. didn't like the audience members dancing behind the band, very distracting. band seemed bored with their show and almost said as much. the Helen Reddy bit "I Am Woman" was bad, didn't understand Thomas or what he was talking about most of the time. also didn't like them pitching their goods that were available for purchase in the lobby. took 2 friends telling how great the show was going to be . all not impressed and probably won't see them again. sad to say

2.0 star rating from Anchorage, Alaska


I don’t go to a music performance of this caliber to watch audience members covering the stage doing as they pleased. Also, this was 90%the same set as they did the last time to anchorage, geez, learn some new material, besides singing happy birthday twice to the same person. I’ll skip them next time.

I have happily seen Pink Martini perform on six previous occasions but the 7th and last was a terrible disappointment at Red Rocks. Filled with “guests” singers and cover songs? Why??? They are so talented and have terrific songs we all wanted to hear and didn’t.

2.0 star rating from Boston, Massachusetts


We went to the show thinking we will hear mostly Pink Martini but even though there were a few songs they performed (and they were great), they added a lot of other performers and in our opinion diluted the music they make. For us the venue made it also very difficult to enjoy the show. The seats are very tight and even though the show was not sold full, it was still a lot of people. The spinning stage is an interesting idea if it had not looked as if it is a torture for the performers as the fans constantly blew to their faces. The most difficult part of all is the parking lot, we knew we had to leave earlier and therefore tried to make a guess in the parking lot to park in a place that will not be blocked. The parking lot do not have lines or people helping and most cars are blocked from leaving early. Needless to say we were also blocked and could not leave. Since we left the show we were also not allowed to get back in. We will not go again to any melody tent event!

1.0 star rating C.Sorgani from Hollywood, California


We were very excited to see Pink Martini again! It was a very disappointing performance. They performed three songs and the rest of the time was filled with other unknown "performers". This was not what we expected and certainly not what we paid for. What were you thinking Pink Martini?

1.0 star rating Vera Moroyan from San Francisco, California


I raved about Pink Martini to my girlfriends. It was a big disappointment last Sunday, Dec 15th at the SF Jazz Center. We were there to hear her classic songs and not Christmas songs, they should have advertised if it was a Holiday Edition...She hardly sang, she had other guests to perform. We were there to listen her upbeat songs to dance and not her boring "I'm a woman and 9 to 5 songs. 2 years ago we saw her at the Mountain Winery and she was fantastic...not sure if I would want to see her again.
