They come to Adelaide on Tuesday, but I'm not going.  sad.gif

I saw them last time they were in Adelaide and it was AMAZING! We were sitting and wish we were standing.
Wish we could go again. My DH got me interested in them nearly 8 years ago now.

We even used one of their songs for our first dance at our wedding.

Love them and I'm not afraid to admit it!  biggrin.gif

I have seen them twice before and the second time was even better then the first, they had all the pyrotechnics and it was awesome.

I got laughed at for going by my work colleagues because i usually went to more cred worthy concerts like Pearl Jam, Metallica, Powder Finger, John Butler, etc etc
But i didnt care because they were great.

I don't understand the negativity about Nickelback.  then again, I've only ever seen that on EB.  

I like Nickelback. I don't have an issue saying that I like Nickelback. They aren't my favourite top 10 band admittedly, but they are far from the worst that have been around.

We were meant to be going but can't make it now sad.gif(
Nickelback rock and they are amazing in concert!
If anyone wants 5 cheap tix for Melb on the 27th inbox me.

I read once that the Nickelback hate is because they know how to market themselves so they just make it into mainstream music, but push the boundaries of what is acceptable and in doing that they have apparently sold out but make sqillions of dollars, no idea if its true but I just love their music biggrin.gif

Im sober now so trust myself to type lol

The tickets where for my 21st since i just missed out on my 18th.

They played nearly every favourite song (was really hoping they would play side of a bullet)

I nearly screamed when they played animals as that is the song that made me fall in love with them years ago.

I would go again with out a second thought.

Dp is not a huge fan and even he was saying he loved when it finished.
I was suprised by the amount of oldies there (i mean that nicely!) i was thinking it would be a younger crowd.

No pyrotechnics last night :-( i was hoping they would open the roof like they did for elton john but they didnt :-(

The support act was pretty good and will be buying their album this week.


All in all iv fallen in love with them even more.

Also i love how they are not all mainstream and the heavier stuff i also love (have a look at a band called hellyeah, my fav is polerider)

I didn't go this time around but saw them last time and thought they were great.

I was under the impression all the hate was because the songs used to be quite crude but their latest album  seems to be a lot tamer.

BTW, my 9yr old son recently told me that he is playing a nickleback song at the end of year music concert (he plays drums) and I was very surprised that the teacher had allowed it. Turns out the teacher never really listened to the words so didn't even know it could be an issue, lol. I don't really have an issue with it since it's not one of their crudest songs but I am glad DS won't be singing (neither will any other kids).

When Nickelback was still an indy band in Canada they were really well liked and popular there. Going mainstream really changed their fan base and a lot of hate appeared-their lyrics didn't help either.

I read that Avril Lavigne and the lead singer are engaged. Interesting match!
