The Music of Led Zeppelin & Three Dog Night - 2 New Rock Concerts Announced!

Omaha, NE— The Omaha Symphony is thrilled to announce the addition of two new Special Concerts, Three Dog Night and The Song Remains the Same: The Music of Led Zeppelin—one to the current season and one to the recently announced 2010/11 lineup. Both performances will take place at the Holland Performing Arts Center at 8 p.m. The Led Zeppelin performance is set for Friday, June 11, 2010. Three Dog Night will play with the orchestra on Saturday, February 19, 2011.
The addition of this popular programming makes sense considering recent sales trends. “The success of the Symphony Rocks season over the past two years has helped to expand our audiences. Whether it is a "Music of" concert or an original artist with the orchestra, audiences have embraced the concerts in this series,” said Lex Poppens, vice president of marketing for the Omaha Symphony.
The Song Remains the Same: The Music of Led Zeppelin combines the power of legendary hits and live orchestra. Audiences can expect to hear hits like “Stairway to Heaven,” “Kashmir,” and “Black Dog,” and enjoy an evening of hard rock and electric energy. Tickets for this show will go on sale, starting Friday, April 23.
Three Dog Night—the 1970s radio sensation—will bring its popular rocks hits to the Holland. Audiences will enjoy upbeat classics like “Joy To The World, “Mama Told Me Not To Come,” and “Old Fashioned Love Song”. This incredible live band performed to a sold out crowd during the symphony’s 2002/03 season. Season ticket holders can purchase these now; they’ll go on sale to single ticket buyers in August.

I had tickets in Tier 2 for Three Dog Night and it was terrible. No one could hear the vocals clear enough to enjoy the music. Once the band turned up the vocals, along with everything else, but turned it back down very quickly because it was too loud for those in front of the stage. The Symphony drowned out the music of Three Dog Night and I had to leave after several songs. It was a waste of time and money.

I sat in Tier 1 and the first three Three Dog Night songs seemed like they never performed a sound check before getting on stage. They stopped the performance after people in Tier 2 started yelling they could not hear the performance. I could not hear any guitar music but I don't think if was the fault of the Symphony. The Three Dog Night sound guy on our level must have been asleep. Not sure what he was hearing. The Symphony sounded great so the whole night was not a loss. Three Dog Night didn't come out for an encore so if must have been past their bedtime.

There was clearly a malfunction of the sound system. The main overhead speakers were not producing any sound, so the only way the audience heard 3 Dog Night was through the monitor speakers on stage. The concert was interrupted for 10 minutes while a fix was attempted,but it didn't work. It was announced from the stage that folks who could not hear could call the box office on Monday and request a refund.

I sat in Tier 1 and from the start could tell the sound system was not right, After a couple of songs, people in tier 1 & 2 were yelling to perform a sound check, but the band kept playing, probably because their ear moniters and stage speakers were OK. Very frustrating, and NOT enjoyable,,,,too bad because TDN has been my favorite for 40 years. My wife and I drove from Wichita, and spent a lot of money and time to attend this concert, and came away very disappointed. We both work at the Intrust Bank arena in Wichita, and I personally have been to at least 15 concerts in the last 13 months, seeing and HEARING everything from George Strait/Reba to the Eagles, and Elton John/Billy Joel. This was far and away the most amateurish & screwed up event I have ever seen!!
