Because I know you guys are desperate to know what they played.

Funniest moment:

Chad Kroeger: Let's make this a proper rock show! In the chorus of this next song, everybody jump and show the devil horns!
> Plays 'Too Bad'

I know everyone hates them, but they are one of the most fun bands to see live.

How is the stage show / pyro on this tour? When I saw them on the Dark Horse tour it blew me away!

I'm a fan of everything except the piece of shit new album, so was looking forward to this because so many people keep saying how good they are live, but found them very, very disappointing.

Doesn't help that half the songs on their "Hits" setlist aren't hits... Or that, in truth, most of their best songs are album tracks.

Non-existent. Literally.

Lots of lights, that's it.

I can't believe Jerry Cantrell likes this band.

I can. They have a lot of good songs, and most people only hate them because they're supposed to. Metal fans are meant to hate Nickelback, it's one of those rules we're all supposed to follow without looking past the fluffy pop singles.

What I can't believe is that they're content pandering to pop fans when they have so many great riffs. $$, I guess.

Regardless of what we're supposed to hate or not hate, I know that when a Nickelback song comes on the radio I always think "this is better than everything else this station plays." So, while I'm not tremendously familiar with their catalog, I consider them one of the better mainstream bands.

The vocals are superb.

Get off your high horse of "Metal fans are so narrowminded." I don't hate them because i'm supposed to, or because they aren't heavy, or because they're popular etc. etc. I hate them because they suck. Plain and simple. I've listened to a fair bit of their non-single material, and it's just as bad as their radio singles. I have no problem with a band that sonically sounds as heavy as or plays the same style as Nickelback. I'm an unabashed fan of a lot of similar sounding bands like Seether, Breaking Benjamin, Shinedown, etc. and while i'm not as big of a fan of those bands as I was say, 6-7 years ago, I still dig 'em. None of those bands are any "heavier" than Nickelback. They generally play the same style of hard rock, just write way, way better songs, with better melodies. Not to mention Shaun Morgan, Benjamin Burnley, and Brent Smith are far superior vocalists than Chad Kroeger.

I'd totally hit this if it came to Ireland. Nickelback get a bad rap, but I dig 'em. Decent setlist.
