BHIC are the most humble musicians I have ever met. The show was amazing and it was only toped off by getting yo meet the man himself. THANK YOU please come back.

I can't believe that concert happened. I sat in that same rain storm at the Zoo last year and every time Ben switched it up a notch to hardcore the lightning struck magnificently. I swore it was the best concert I had ever been to. I would say that but I had no idea what three hours of musical perfection I was going to see at Harrah's. The band is tight. They played everything so well. The crowd definitely smoked out the band during "Burn One Down" which led to a highlight quote. I recorded when Tom came back out to show everyone who was boss on guitar. I've watched it like 25 times since then and its better everytime. Best concert I have ever been to. My mom even said it was the best concert she has ever been to and it is a huge thing when a band will give you 2.5 hours of music in concert and stay that into it. I thank Ben for playing music and will see him any chance I get.

The show could not have been better. We were the 3rd & 4th people in line (behind Derek) and it was well worth the early arrival time for the front row viewing. Thanks to everyone on stage for delivering a compelling, entertaining, and all around awesome show. I stood in a rain storm last summer in Kansas City, MO to see a Ben Harper show and I'll certainly do it again. Please come back to this area soon. Thank you for the gift of your music.

All I can say is "WOW!" I was absolutely blown away by Ben's talent and his humble nature. I had heard of him before and heard some of his music on 89.7 The River however, I was nerver really a big fan, simply because I hadn't heard enough of him before. However, I was asked at last minute to go to the concert because a friend got ditched and had nobody to go with. I almost passed because I didn't know any of the words to Ben's music. I decided to go as a favor to my friend. Once he came out and I heard the first song I was mesmerized. His musical breadth and talent was and is beyond words. I have many musical tastes and love variety when it comes to musis. He caters to that. He even mentioned that at the concert, thanking the crowd for going in different musical directions with him that night. It was awesome! I thought I was doing my friend a favor for going with her, but during the show and several times since the show, I have thanked her for doing me the favor. Ben, you were absoulutely sick on stage! THANKS SO MUCH FOR COMING HERE! I'm absolutely a fan now!!!

The show was definatly unforgetable. It was my first time seeing BHIC and the first time at the venue. Both were amazing. Ben touched almost all of his albums and played a sick set for sure!! What was even more amazing was meetin all of them after the show and just seeing how real they really were. Ben, I asked you if you enjoyed the crowd and the venue, you said absolutley and that you would be back. I'm holding you to that:) Much love...peace!!

Simply the best. I've seen Ben many times and this show above them all captured Ben in all of his brilliance. When "Get up, Stand Up" played I felt as if I was in the presence of the Great One himself.....thank you for that and come back to Iowa any time.

THE BEST concert I have ever been to. I was feelin the vibes throughout. So glad we got to the venue early- front row was the only way to be at this concert. I only wished we brought our camera into the concert. Come back to Iowa BHIC! If anyone has pictures please email them to me my email is: joebaumannmusic@yahoo.com. Thanks!

I was the biggest fan of the band at the show and Ben knew it!!! I'm the one he came to to take a picture with while doing the splits onto the fence. I was in line outside the gates hours before anyone else. It was more than well worth it because it was the best show ever with the best spot. THANK YOU SO MUCH BEN for recognizing me! Thanks to Juan, Leon, Oliver, Jason, and Mike.. and Mr. Morello for an amazing experience!!! My 2nd show. many more to come!

I flew out from Phoenix,AZ to see this show with my wife and a couple firends. WOW!!!!! i've seen BHIC in Phoenix but it was nothing like this. Great venue, even greater weather, and it seemed like the band was having just as much funa and didn't want to stop playing, which was awesome! Thanks for the best show i've ever seen! When Tom came out to jam with the band it was amazing, but i think the best part of the night was when they played burn one down and ben got down near the crowd and everyone was blowing smoke in his face and he sang "you are getting me high!" I'll remember that moment forever, very funny. I can't wait until they play this venue again, i will be there!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I've been to a lot of shows both here in Omaha/Council Bluffs and Overseas, and this show was the best I've seen by far. Tom Morello kicks the show off with a fantastic "One Man Revolution" acoustic set and then the BHIC put on what seemed like an endless show for two and a half hours. Tom Morello fans - myself included - got the ultimate treat of seeing Tom come out on electric and Ben on acoustic. The show culminated in meeting both Tom and Ben back stage and getting a chance to talk to them and thank them for putting on one of the best shows I've seen...just a fucking amazing show! This is definitely a "Do Not Miss" show.

Thanks for an amazing show guys! The dedication you have to your fans is unbelievable.

This was hands down the best show that I have ever seen. The combination of Ben Harper and Tom Morello is a show that everyone in this country needs to see. When Tom came on stage to sing Masters of War I just lost it. AWSOME SHOW GUYS!!!!!
