Nickelback Wow The Arena
Posted on February 12, 2008The lovely Jill Dixon sent us in the following email, and we thought we'd share it with you. Thanks for the line Jill!
Thought you might be interested in this from my local paper. I was at the show and had a fantastic time. The crowd were really up for it - singing and jumping along. Never Again nearly took the roof off. I hope the band enjoyed it as much as we did. Please don't take too long to come back to Newcastle!!! We love ya Nickelback!!
Rockers Wow The Arena

With a flash of leaping flames and pyrotechnics, Canadian rock band Nickelback exploded onto the stage of the Telewest Arena.And after the crowd
had been sufficiently warmed up by the impressive supporting act Default, the chart-toppers kicked into action with an appropriate Woke Up This
Morning.They continued into the night with a mix of old and new songs from The State album and the more recent Silver Side Up, working the crowd up
into a jumping frenzy. We even got a taste of yet-to-be-released material.But as my knees began to ache from all the leaping around to the popular rock anthems Never Again and the recently released single Too Bad, it was time to take it easy with an acoustic version of the Spider-Man film theme Hero.My time-out was short lived as Nickelback came back with a crowd-roaring encore of their biggest hit, How You Remind Me, with frontman Chad Kroeger encouraging the crowd to sing along.And, in an even more impressive explosion of pyrotechnics, the good times were gone all too soon.By my reckoning the group were on stage for less than an hour. They have a wealth of material and could have treated us to a tad more on-stage time.That said, a good time was had by all - it's just a pity it was over as quickly as it was.
