We would like to give a big thanks to Jo for putting together this live review from Nickelbacks Shephards Bush show. Remember Nickelbacks latest album All The Right Reasons is out now. CLICK HERE to view the ecard. It was like they had never been awayí¢ä‰åŒ_ Nickelback hit the the Shepherds bush empire in London with avengeance for a one-off low-key show in support of a new single, new album and with a new band-member. The Kroeger brothers (Chad and Mike) guitarist Ryan Peake were joined by Daniel Adair on his first outing with the band in the Uk . The venue trembled with the roar of the 2000 die hard Nickelback fans as the lights went down to the pounding of Queens í¢ä‰åñwe will rock youí¢ä‰åŒ Kroeger and co emerged onto the stage and tore into the crowd with ‘Flat On The Floor’ from their last album, The Long Road .. a pick of the best including Woke Up This Morning, Breathe, Leader Of Men and Never Again showed without doubt, They just get better with each performance, Chad couldn’t contain the broad smile as the band kicked into the latest release í¢ä‰åñPhotographí¢ä‰åŒ from the album í¢ä‰åñAll The Right Reasonsí¢ä‰åŒ as the crowd more or less took over ever word, the lack of the pyrotechnics which would not have been possible to host at this venue were somewhat substituted by the podiums either side of the stage, far more an outstanding view as the Kroeger brothers and Peake strode up much to the delight of the ladies in the front row who were left begging for more of the crotch filled guitar solos. not even a sudden surge of power which knocked out the set twice throughout í¢ä‰åñbecause of youí¢ä‰åŒ could dampen the spirit of the crowd as Kroeger announced í¢ä‰åñIf this goes down a third time, you guys get your money back,and we still fucking playí¢ä‰åŒ The rest of the performance was flawless, previewing new material such as í¢ä‰åñFollow you homeí¢ä‰åŒ, which would stand in its own right as a single release, mixed with the old favorites which was clearly what the fans wanted. Time for beer o clock with the pint pots of Carling reaching high into the seated areas of the venue accompanied by Timmy firing off T shirts into the crowd from a cannon, one of the highlights of the show was Peake and Kroeger picking out fans from the crowd to join Daniel Adair on stage for a í¢ä‰åñbeer chugging contestí¢ä‰åŒ once again showing that these guys are second to none when it comes to fan/band interaction. With a cover of í¢ä‰åñSeek and Destroy by Metallica, Adair’s outstanding performance with his drum solo, they drew the show to a close with í¢ä‰åñFigured you outí¢ä‰åŒ the í¢ä‰åñDirty little numberí¢ä‰åŒ .as Kroeger playfully named it. Chatting to their fans, Posing for photographs and signing posters etc, are all part of Nickelback,s way of just how much they appreciate their fans after their shows, and I can’t fault their loyalty. A Uk tour is expected early 2006.
