All the Things That Happen When You Go to a Nickelback Concert
Disclaimer: This post was written by a genuine Nickelback fan. Go forth and judge.
I went to Nickelback's Newcastle, NSW, concert on Saturday. Yes, I deliberately chose to spend my Saturday night — oh, precious Saturday night — with Chad Kroeger. On purpose. I did this on purpose. And you know what? I was pumped.
I'm one of those people who doesn't really understand why everyone loves to hate Nickelback so much — with 50 million records sold and their song "How You Remind Me" the best-selling rock song of the 2000s, they can't be that bad, right? Though that said, I also love Taylor Swift, Eminem, Justin Bieber (especially now), the Spice Girls, etc, so I realise I may not be the best judge.
So, the concert. Saturday night. I wasn't sure what to expect but I was keen to scope out some of these mysterious fellow Nickelback fans (apparently they do exist). So what happened? Lots. Here are 10 truths about what happens when you go to a Nickelback concert.
