Omaha review and pics
At about 9:26 p.m., the auditorium was filled back to back with people pushing for a front row view of the stage. For the third time that night, the lights went down, and the audience began screaming, knowing that their well awaited heroes were making it to the stage.
If the pyrotechnics had been incredible earlier, it was absolutely amazing at this point. Along with the blinking club lights were light screens that narrated each song and at times gave a clearer image of the band from Agoura Hills, Calif., as they rocked out.
Lead singer, Chester Bennington, made the crowd go wild throughout the night as he got off stage and headed into the throngs of awaiting fans.
The band performed recent hits like "Bleed it Out" and "Shadow of the Day" and after about an hour of straight playing, headed off stage to call it a night. Nevertheless, their fans were not quite satisfied, rioting for an encore.
Impressed by this tremendous admiration for their music, Linkin Park came back and performed old classics like "Papercut," "Faint" and a few other songs. Then, with a kiss goodbye, the band put down their instruments and said farewell.
