Frontman Chad Kroeger formed Nickelback with two of his brothers -- guitarist Mike and drummer Brandon -- and guitarist-keyboardist Ryan Peake in their isolated hometown of Hanna, Alberta. They eventually moved to Vancouver to work on original music, and landed a deal with Roadrunner Records after self-releasing their debut album, Curb, in 1996 and building a large fan base in Vancouver. Brandon Kroeger left the group early in its run; Nickelback's current drummer is Daniel Adair.
Bad stage set up
When purchasing tickets it only showed that there was one stage. Once at the event we were unable to see all the good acts due to the stage set up. Was really disappointed that we paid almost $200 and did not get to see any of the good acts.
Fort Mac Benefit Concert was absolutely amazing!
The sound quality was amazing, the performers were on time one after another for the full 6 hours. The MC was entertaining and the energy in the stadium was unreal!
I would go see them again!
This was my second time attending a Nickelback concert. The first Nickelback concert I attended was in Mannheim, Germany, in November 2013. It was part of their previous tour: the "Hits Tour". I mostly enjoyed the concert being set outside. The previous time I saw them was in an indoor venue, and the speakers were way too loud, creating strong vibrations that I could even feel deep in my jaw... I would not have been able to stay through the entire concert without the use of earplugs. This time, however, thanks to the concert being held outside, the music was not reverberated by an enclosed environment, which made the overall experience a lot more enjoyable! I also enjoyed the fact that their setlist did not only include songs from their latest album, but also a number of hits from the previous years. I will definitely go see them again if I have the opportunity! I had a great time! :)
POP EVIL AND NICKELBACK ROCKED THE HOUSE!!!
Pop Evil Never Disappoints, This Is The Third Time Seeing Them Live And They Always Bring It. There On Stage Performance Is Always Explosive. For Me This Is The First Time seeing Nickelback And They were Amazing!!! They Played Hit After Hit And A Few Covers. Will Definitely See Them Again.
Nickelback's concert was life-changing!
Nickelback's stage setup, with huge screen behind the band, was fantastic allowing even those in the back of the convention center to get a good view and great images of the band throughout the concert. The moment the lights went down for the start of the concert, the air was electric! The audience was on it's feet, ready to rock with the band. Nickelback rocked the house! Chad Kroeger was fantastic as the band's front man, making jokes and getting the crowd to participate. All the band members were smiling and having a great time. Chad's guitar solos (Burn It To The Ground) and Daniel's drum solo were killer! They played a variety of their music, which was appreciated. The band makes being rock stars look effortless, and you can see they love what they do. The only thing that could have made this concert better would be the band playing all night long! It was a night my wife and I will never forget, and we plan to attend as many Nickelback concerts as we can! On a scale of 1 to 10, 10 being the best...Nickelback would be a 100! Thank you Nickelback!!
