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.
No Expectations, Greatly Surprised
So, took my 2 older teens to see Nickelback with Daughtry at Blossom Music Center since the tickets were pretty low-priced. Even the kids weren't sure what to expect, but we left thinking that was one of the most entertaining concert we've ever been to. Daughtry was great and sounded amazing. When Nickelback came on with two hard-driving songs, my daughter wasn't sure about it, but then they started playing their hits. Along with that, the lead singer started talking and without any expectations, we all found him funny and extremely likable. They sounded great, some great add-ons, and Chad was just fun to hear talk in between songs.
Only reason for a 4 star was the volume seemed low. Could have been louder. They could have talked less. The amount of talking could have given 3 to 4 more songs. Especially after 10 minutes about paying a grand a minute going past 11 and yet they finished before. Having to drive to Indy twice because of the last minute cancellation made that part a bummer. All in all a great show.
It was awesome from start to finish best concert I've been to so far
That was the best concert of my life! Nickel back was so good . They are so funny!
Awesome concert all around
Nickelback put on a GREAT show. Loved how he got the audience involved. We have been to a lot of concerts and this was the best. Didn't know much about Daughtry but wow did that guy have a great voice. Loved when Nickelback brought him on stage to sing with him.
