Damn good show. For everyone that thought it was average at best, you're getting spoiled. Carter acted as God last night, with Boyd tearing it up right along with him. Roi had a fair night too. I think he broke a reed during WAYG. Dave was right on all night! The vocals on the American Baby Intro are just mind blowing! Seek Up was magnanimous and the rest of the songs were really strong in my opinion. Uber thanks to the band for making a wicked blustery night seem bright.

First show ever and it was phenomenal. Front row of the upper bowl directly to the side of the stage. Had trouble hearing Dave sometimes.

Most beautiful show I've seen thus far...though it's hard to pinpoint that. Seek Up was so beautifully drawn out. Pig was fantastic as well...and I'm pretty sure Dave danced like crazy during Stand Up and it was great--definitely got the crowd screaming (though they were already freaking out beforehand!). Christmas Song teased was a surprise, but a pleasant one for sure.

Sixth show, closest we've ever been (12th row) and that made a huge difference. Not the best set list I've heard, but it was still great. I always hope for the old stuff, the long stuff, and seems like the newer songs win out. DDTW was a nice opener, Dreamgirl is always a treat. Seek Up was a high point; Boyd always plays so soulfully during this number. ABIntro was powerful and and has given me goosebumps both times I've heard it live. Nancies was great. Two Step, Ants were fun! The Christmas Song tease was just plain MEAN. I was especially disappointed when I looked at its rarity index and figured that I'll probably not hear it live. Boyd and Carter both looked like they were having a great time, which always makes it a treat. Got a kick out of the user that said the crowd should grow a pair and sing Honey, Honey (or Hani, Hani) during #36/Everyday. I contributed--always like to hear everyone joining in on those songs. Makes you remember how much fun you're having in a crowd. Great show!

I was so close I could see the sweat on Daves face! I was in Row 4 and it was a mind-blowing experience. They didnt play a lot of my old favorites, but I was surprised when I heard WAYG. Im trying to plan to see them at Red Rocks, or at the Gorge, which would be incredible.

The best Dave show I've ever been too without a doubt!!!! They jammed their best songs forever and played a lot of ones that they usually don't. It was amazing, and the only Dave show I've ever been to that was inside.

Got Warehouse tix in the first row! it was mind blowing one of the best shows I've been to. Warehouse after nancies would have been sweet but still awesome! My first time in the 1 row. highly recommended :)

Great show with tons of energy. It was great to see DDTW as an opener for the first time that winter and the WTWE, Stand Up, Seek Up, HFTGL spread that followed. The encore break was insane without a doubt the best that I have seen indoors. And when the boys came back on stage you could hear them laughing and smiling all over! Great show!

OMGWTFBBQ! Well, some will understand the inside joke. Seek Up was the highlight. Incredible. Enough said.

I thought this show was pretty damn good. THe last show I saw was the 9/11 Red rocks show and i'm not even gonna try to compare apples and oranges, but still it was a GREAT return to Omaha. I agree with some that said that the flow was a little "wierd", and that the new songs are good, just please don't flood the set with them! Highlights were unmistakingly Seek Up, Two Step, Pig, Ants, Even the 1st 2 chords or so of Christmas song was good enuf for me (for now anyway) and I dug the DDTW intro all in all an 8/10

I had 14th row and was really excited but this show was a let down. They played virtually the same set list as the night before and played with very little energy.

pretty solid show, loved DDTW opener and AM closer. Christmas song tease was quite mean. Boyd and Carter owned the show with solos, little lack of Lerio. Overall I'd give it a 7 out of 10.

decent show. in the bottom half of shows ive seen. Seek Up was great to hear for this first time, but the set had terrible flow. also, Old Dirt Hill is the worst thing ive ever seen this band perform live, such a terrible song. but Seek Up, Ants, Two Step, Pig, and Nancies made the show enjoyable. overall i had a good time.

This was my first Dave Matthews Band concert. It was probably the best show I've ever been to and equally the best night of my life. This will defintely not be the last Dave concert I attened.

User: lizzyhu2
Review:
it was definately a good show.... so glad dave finally made it back to omaha. didn't have to travel for once... but it wasn't the best i've seen. and i've been to 6 shows and still haven't heard CRASH! but the encore was by far the highlight of the show

Absolutely fantastic show. A lof of Stand Up material was performed, as was the norm for the Winter Tour, and although I'm not as huge of a fan of those songs in general, they were performed flawlessly and with tons of emotion. I didn't want it to be over!

Such a great show, with an awesome setlist. Seek Up, Nancies, Pig, Ants, etc. The crowd rocked, and so did DMB!

User: mlinar9

Yes, it was an amazing show with tons of energy, a fun setlist but extremely typical would be the only complaint, but it was still a great. Due to comments about my previous comment about he lack of singing during everyday I have this to add. I sat in section 105. You do the math. There were sone diehards around me but 3/4 were sitting down for any slower song or jam that they didnt recognize from the radio.

Awesome show - high energy throughout, good mix of old and new. The new songs didn't sound "new" and have found their niche. The crowd was into it the entire time.

I'm not going to rehash anyone's comments. Awesome show, 8 of 10 for sure. Setlist could have been better but hey, I was very happy. And I heard quite a few people on the honey honey in Everyday. Listen to the recording and it is clear that a good amount of us were singing. I know I was. Ants is the best closer in the DMB catalog. And Seek Up was hella sweet!!!!!!!!!!

First indoor DMB show and I loved it. Best seat I have ever had. American Baby Intro knocked me down into my seat and made me cry from belly buttom up. Thanks DMB for a fine show. Show # 5 for me.

My first show and my husband's third show. They only played one of my favorites, but overall it was fun.

I have been to shows in Dallas, Houston, KC, St. Louis and Omaha this year, and go figure, the best of the bunch was 55 miles from my house in Omaha. I was hoping to hear Pig, but when I saw that they had played it the night before, I figured there went my chance for that. So imagine my surprise when I heard that unmistakeable intro. Don't Drink the Water is always a fantastic song to open with. I hope they come to the Qwest again, I thought it was a great venue. Energy was pretty good. Dave coming out to introduce Gavin Degraw was awesome. He was so funny...and drunk. In the encore, I thought for sure we were going to hear Christmas Song, even before the tease, and then he played a couple cords and got me all excited...and went into Everyday. The only down side, they are still playing too much new stuff. I like the new stuff, I just want a better mix of old and new. In short, it was awesome, 8 out of 10 stars...10 being Red Rocks this summer, which I didn\'t make.

Overall a good night. Nothing great, but nothing horrible either. The night had me at Seek Up. Two Step was fun as so was Stand Up. The show had no flow though. WAYG and ODH killed a lot of energy. The Christmas Song tease is enough to make me hate Christmas! Oh well, maybe next winter tour.
