      Paul returns to Omaha for the first time since 2005. Presale is underway, already snagged my seats. So who is coming to Nebraska?

      PS...had to set up a new account, I am Jet219 from this board over 10 years ago. If anyone remembers me say hello!

        Just got our tickets! Section 203, so nosebleeds, but that's okay; this will be my seventh show and I'm so excited I get to be there!!

            After getting nothing to show up right away, I got two $96-level seats in the upper deck.

              Hey.. didnt we meet for dinner before the Omaha show back in 05? You and your wife were in the front row and we were in the 3rd. You had a big flag or a sign or something you held up. I think that was you!

                I got a ticket, too, but the experience was painful. Took 4 hours to get it to work, so my location isn't as good as I hoped for. Oh, well at least I'll be thee.

                  Looking forward to visiting Nebraska once again to see the MAN! , had a great time last visit!

                    We did. That was an unforgettable night, and thanks for being so hospitable. I also remember that you had your glow sticks taken away by an overzealous security worker. We had to smuggle in the flag that he ended up signing because the people working the ticket entrance told us we couldn't take it in. Ridiculous. Then we ended up getting it signed.

                      Brand new user here and purchased tickets to this show yesterday! The concert is on my son's 8th birthday and he will be attending too! He is a Beatles/Paul fan so we're pretty excited. First show for all of us so I will be watching for some tips and things! I'm considering making a sign for my kiddo but didn't know if it would be a futile effort - we will be towards the rear of the floor seats.

                        I have one extra ticket, for sale for face value including fees. Section 223, Row J. $115 via Paypal. PM me if you are interested.

                              Count me in. I'll be seated in Warren Buffett's suite! LOL

                              Any good places to eat and drink around the arena? Should be there in time for limo watch.

                                What time are you showing up for limo watch? I'm thinking 2 p.m.? Also, the Old Market in downtown Omaha has a lot of good places and is within a few blocks walking distance of the arena.

                                  You will all have a great time. So great your son is already a Paul fan. I would still make up the sign. Just because your seats are in the rear, doesn't rule your chances out. Often, Paul's people go around to see the best signs. Then they choose one or two. Your son at only 8 and his first show might be the right "hook".

                                  Speaking of young children getting hooked on Paul and the Beatles, I remember my Daughter was a little over a year when the Tug of War album came out. I loved the album and played it a lot in the house. One day as "Ballroom Dancing" was blasting away, I look over and see my Daughter dancing to it in her own gorgeous way. I grinned from ear to ear as she was shaking her body away. The simplest, spontaneous things in life are always the best. First song she ever danced to!

                                    You never know with the limo watch. Personally, after about 50 Paul shows, the only time I've caught him showing up early...meaning around 3-3:30...was in Nashville a few years ago. That was a relief as it was over 100 degrees! I'm sure others have different experiences...Like OKC the other night.

                                      I did a Limo watch in STL and honestly it was fun to do once but was a lot of waiting for little payoff. I wouldnt begrudge anyone trying though. I would say enjoy your night, make it memorable. There are some great restaurants downtown, I can give you some insight if you tell me a type of place youd like to go. All within walking distance but uber is an easy way to get back over to the front of the venue if walking a couple blocks isnt your idea of a good time. The old mattress factory is closer than most people park, up on capital is a few places too. But the Old Market district is very close as well.

                                      Ive seen Paul 5 times and this will be 6 and perhaps the most special. My son was born a month and 2 days ago and his middle name is James for obvious reasons. You see, he was born on Paul's birthday! Also, my wife and I were married on march 12th, Paul and Linda's wedding day. Seeing Paul in my hometown again will be such a thrill. I do wish the setlist would change a bit but I am just so excited to see him again. Cant wait for sunday
