Nickelback Reviewed By You
Posted on February 12, 2008Hot off the email from Sheila... thanks for writing a review and sending it to us!
Just simply had to write about the Nickelback gigs I have been to see last Thursday and Friday evening. Now not sure if any of you guys have had the opportunity to catch the band but, if not DO SO, I could do nothing else but watch in totally amazement, this band are truly AWESOME.
They gave one of the strongest performances I have ever seen from a band, any questions one might have had about their ability surely on these performances just has to be quashed. Its been like 15 years since I have seen a performance with so much raw energy and power, from the opening track 'Woke Up this Morning' until the final close of 'How You Remind Me' these guys never once lost the plot, they know what an audience wants and really give it to them. Anyone who has any questions still as to their ability to stand alongside great bands, just go, get the albums and listen to them, see them live and then tell me you don't like Nickelback.
I was totally blown away from their shows on Thursday evening at the NEC 10,000 other people felt the same from the reception the band received. The following night in Cardiff there was even a more powerful response, just when I thought they could not have gone down any better hell they blew the CIA roof off. I am not easily impressed by new bands but these guys are true professionals.
Also check out Default who were supporting Nickelback, just awesome, it was the first time I have had the opportunity to see Nickelback and I just long for the next tour, I just had the greatest of times. Default this is their first UK gigs and they almost blew my socks off to be honest, what a great supporting act, it may not seem it but I was totally speechless for 24 hours after the show. My heart pounding still, hearing almost gone, but was it worth, you bet.
