Lincoln, Neb.-- As thousands filed into the new Pinnacle Bank Arena, the excitement kept building.
"Really excited," Deb Eidam, from Omaha, said, "because I just love his voice, but I like the orchestration and everything else that goes with it."
Even for those who've seen Bublé before.
"This is actually our second time seeing him," Michael Mejstrik, of Omaha, said.
"I like to say this is my third date with Michael Bublé," another concert goer said.
Several of the people heading to the arena actually came from outlying cities, like Omaha or Elkhorn.
With more big names heading to the arena in coming months, it should come as no surprise that Lincoln may bring in fans from all parts of the state.
The only hitch on the evening was a possible lack of cell phone and internet service. The ability to send tweets, use the internet or phone, was likely to be limited due to so many people in such a confined area.
But, fans said it would probably make the experience that much better.
"Then you don't have distractions of people like with their phones," Mejstrik said, "especially if they forget to put it on vibrate, it won't interrupt the show or anything like that."
Concert-goers also said getting to the arena turned out to be a bit easier than expected, as shuttle services brought them in from various parking areas nearby.
