Nickelback are one of my favourite bands ever. I admit, I may not be the biggest fan of new release NO FIXED ADDRESS, but they are still a great act. In the two times I have seen them, I have been thoroughly impressed with their style and power. So, when I heard about the upcoming tour for 2015 for the band, I then remembered about a campaign which came up some time ago. Prepare for one of the greatest fails ever!
The campaign which was called #DONTLETNICKELBACK was created in order to stop the band from ever playing in London again. First off, I thought this was just stupid. Then afterwards, I had a bit of a chuckle to myself. It stated that money would go to charity or “therapy for those who’ve been affected by the band”. Many comments came from those who saw the site criticizing the creator for just hating the band and having an unnecessary personal vendetta against them. The fact that lead singer Chad Kroeger actually responded about the campaign was brilliant and said he liked it as it kept the band’s name floating about. Also, the target was $10,000 and this only got to $339 before the project then ran out of time. Clearly, there are only a small number of those who really want to target this band and try to bring them down, but shall not succeed.
Anyway, back to the tour. the No Fixed Address Tour begins in the UK on 13th November 2015 and will be playing eight arena shows all over the United Kingdom and coming to a close at Wembley Arena on Tuesday 24th November. This will conclude a 98 date (so far) world tour. Will you be seeing the band live? Do you enjoy their music? Let me know and if you are will be going to see them on their latest tour?
