Pretty good energy for a midweek indoor show, not a bad setlist at all (other than I Did It)...just seemed like it was 2 or 3 songs short. My 42nd show and I can't ever remember a main set being only 2 hours long. Two Step was as strong as I've ever heard it. See you at Xcel tonight...

Was SO excited for Granny!!! Then got even better with I Did It, Big Eyed Fish and Lie in Our Graves. I agree that the show was a little shorter than normal....

This show was great! 22nd show and my first Squirm, Time Bomb and Big Eyed Fish. Every song had high energy & the crowd was very appreciative and receptive of nearly everything played. I even liked the I Did It thrown in there. Kind of cool to hear stuff that doesn\'t get much play (especially with all the Cornbread, YMDT, etc.. overkill) Highlights were LIOG, Two Step, Big Eyed Fish and Granny.

Great version of Two Step, loved the Time Bomb intro. Read a lot of bad reviews of this show, but all in all I think it was a very high energy show.

They definitely cranked out some hits, and I added 4 new live songs to my stats (including Granny!) Beers were large and 'only' $6. Though I was a little disappointed that the lower bowl seats are actually added on, so you're about eye level (or below) the people standing when you're sitting... but who sits at a DMB show anyway?

Such a good show. Carter was just wailing on the drums. First time seeing Bartender...Just insane. Big Eyed fish too

A very solid performance, made better by going with my sister. And this is my last show until I return from Japan!

This was a special night for me: I took my Mom, my brother, and his girlfriend to their first show.

This year the crowd was infinitely better than the last time they played in Omaha. This might have something to do with the more beginner-friendly set list. Last time they opened with a 15 minute Dreaming Tree and also played Sugar Will and Drive in Drive Out. I love those songs, but for the newer fans, which includes many of us Nebraskans, it would have been hard to appreciate the rarity and complexity of those songs. It was encouraging to see a huge response to Jeff’s solo on lithog, Boyd’s on liog, and of course Carter’s on Two Step.

Highlights for me included the aforementioned solos, as well as my first Squirm and Bartender. Hilarious davespeak about perspiration as he proceeded to flick hair/forehead sweat across the stage repeatedly like a lunatic. My sympathies to anyone who missed Two Step this summer. It is truly something to behold! The new outtro isn’t for the faint of heart: the sound and lights could easily trigger an epileptic episode—it is that awesome!

I had to dock 2 stars for the short and less-diverse set list, but a lot of that is probably due to the fact that they had to be playing in Minnesota less than 20 hours after the end of the show. Plus one cannot always go into a show expecting a crowd-induced Halloween like I got in Camden last year. Our view of Timmy and Boyd was obstructed by the speakers, but what can you expect from nosebleed tickets.

I had to add a star back on just for the sheer fact of the company I was with. How many moms are willing to dance with their 27 year old son and lead the cheering in our section all the way up in section 204? And how many first time concert-goers know the names of all the band members? I had an awesome time singing practically all the lyrics with my brother, who is a musician himself. And I never hesitate (or fail) to act like a complete fool in front of his girl.

Overall it was an incredible show. As with most things in life, it is all about the people you are with. Thanks Dave and Co. for an awesome show! Thanks Omaha for redeeming yourself! Thanks Joe and Leahlia for another fun night! Happy 50th birthday Mom!

My first time seeing the band in an enclosed arena. My uncle is the GM of the Quest center so I had a great time enjoying all the amenities.

Hadn't seen them live since 2002. It was great to be back, and they played a great show! Just wish Nebraska had a large outdoor venue. Hoping they'll come back this year, though!

Amazing show!! This is show #7 this year for me and Omaha turned into one of the best. I honestly went into the Omaha show thinking of it as a warm up to Wrigley Feild..... Wow I was impressed. The band was full of energy and in good form. Loved the version of Two Step.
