Omaha review - another crowd record!!!

Published Wednesday

Review: Shania Twain gives fan-friendly concert

BY KIM ROBERTS-GUDEMAN
WORLD-HERALD STAFF WRITER


Concert Etiquette 101: It is generally considered bad form to slap the backside of the headlining performer.

Yes, a few ornery fans stood out among a record-setting crowd of 17,139 who showed up to watch Shania Twain's concert Tuesday night at the Omaha Arena. Emerson Drive opened the show.

After singing "The Woman in Me" from a seat in the lower deck, Twain gently chastised several people for smacking her "in places they shouldn't" on her way back to the stage.

A short time later, she asked for volunteers who knew the words to sing the romantic ballad "You're Still the One" with her on stage. The chosen volunteer was not well-versed on the lyrics.

Through it all, the pop-country superstar remained gracious. She even invited one of the quick-handed perpetrators - who admitted his action and apologized - on stage.

The extracurricular activities didn't overshadow Twain's solid performance.

She gave fans a concert that showcased some of the best hits from her most recent album, "Up!," along with older favorites.

She began her 11/2-hour set with "Man! I Feel Like a Woman!" and then segued into the title track of "Up!"

From then on, she went from hit to hit, including "Honey, I'm Home," "Forever and for Always," "Whose Bed Have Your Boots Been Under?" and a medley: "When," "You Win My Love," "Come on Over" and "I'm Holdin' on to Love (To Save My Life)."

She changed clothes in the middle of the set, trading her sheer green camisole and turquoise undergarment for a hot pink T-shirt.

Twain invited on stage the winner of a raffle that raised money before the show for the Second Harvest food bank.

She ended her set with songs including "That Don't Impress Me Much" and "I'm Gonna Getcha Good!," returning to the stage for an encore of "Any Man of Mine" and "Rock This Country!"

Not everything about the show was perfect.

There was very little country in the performance; this was pop through and through. While she graciously signed autograph after autograph during the show, it did begin to detract from her singing after a while. And twice she said "Iowa" instead of "Nebraska" when speaking to the crowd.

But it's hard to be critical of a musician who was so gracious and thoughtful of her fans.

At the end of her performance she said, "We gotta come back to Omaha. You guys are good."

HOW RUDE!!!!! Seems we have a bunch of disrespectful idiots out in Omaha. All it takes is a few stupid people for Shania not to do something like this again. People don't think!!

Heh heh ! Seems we were just thinking and posting at the same time, Chris.

Yeah, idiots like these would make Shania think twice about placing herself amongst the audience in future. But I'm glad this doesn't happen very often.

This is the 2nd time I'm reading about this. Can't remember where the 1st review was about when Shania got kinda mad about it and told security off or something ? I read it a while back now .... in the 1st leg......

I think that was when she was trying to get to her brother in the audience. Not when she was running back to the stage. People being idiots, would not let her through.

I wonder what she said when she got on stage?? I mean they smacked someone's mom on the backside. She had to have said something to make them feel guilty.

Officer Injured In Hit-And-Run
Van Drags Police Officer

POSTED: 8:28 a.m. CDT May 26, 2004
UPDATED: 8:40 a.m. CDT May 26, 2004

OMAHA, Neb. -- An Omaha police officer was recovering from surgery Wednesday morning after a hit-and-run near the Qwest Center Tuesday night.

Paul Lawson, 38, was working traffic for the Shania Twain concert when he tried to stop a minivan at 10th and Dodge streets. Witnesses said the officer yelled at the van driver to stop, then grabbed onto the vehicle. The van dragged Lawson about 150 feet.

Tiffany Lothrop said she watched the events unfold. She said the officer hit the ground hard. Lawson was rushed to a hospital where he went into surgery for a head injury.

Meanwhile, his fellow officers looked for the person driving the minivan. The Omaha police helicopter searched from the sky, while officers on the ground deployed stop sticks. Two hours later, the van's tires were punctured and the vehicle was surrounded near Interstate 480 and 20th Street.

Police arrested the driver, but have not yet released his name.

Anyone from here go???? Someone has to find out what she said when she got back on stage. I wonder if she told the people who slapped her, "you don't impress me much" since that is the song she sings at that point in the show.


If the reviewer were a Shania fan, the perfect headline for this review would have been "If you wanna touch her, DON'T!"

I was inch away going to Omaha right after Moline but Omaha to Southeastern Wisconsin was going to be 8-9 hour trip. Even when I got offered 2nd row on the floor I thought the trip would of been too dangrous for someone my age when I had to drive back home, alone. Cause I would of had to leave towards Wisconsin either right after the concert or at 3:00-4:00 in the morning, not safe at all. No I'm kind of kicking my *** of not going. Oh well!

I know someone who did go to that show. I'll get some information from her tomorrow night.
