    Bands You Are Attending/Band Review Thread

    Ill bring this back from the previous incarnation of the board.

    Ive just seen Nickelback & Skillet at The Hydro in Glasgow. Flameproof Suit is on!!!

    After seeing Nickelback, who put on a fucking great and brilliant show, as Sam Dunn said on Metal Evolution, you need to see Nickelback to get them, he is right. Like them or not, the show is what they do well, and its one of the best shows ive been to, also one of the less rough shows ive been to as well as i seem to have a chequered past of shows that were rough as hell.

    Nickelback help the crowd in more ways than noe, they helped a guy propose to his girlfriend, and welcomed him to the club. Also after the first song of thgeir encore, they stoped the show to help guys who got knocked out at the front middle out of the crowd. Chad Kroger is a decent guy in my opinion for this, many bands would have carried on regardless. Band were taken aback when us Scotts decided to chant, "Here We - Here We - Here We Fucking Go" during show!

    I was 4 to 5 rows out and got a great view of the bands, untill this drunken git and his friend in their late 40s who has had his face pasted a few times decided they wanted my space and the 6 lassies i met at the show (sadly no numbers) decided to spill beer on us for the second half of Skillet.

    Skillet, yes a Christian Rock band supporting a Nickelback show, were damned good, equally as good as Shinedown who i saw 5-6 weeks ago at the Alter Bridge gig a t the same venue. Skillet have a good drummer, and she is hot too, she hits herself in the face quite a bit tho with a drum stick! Id see them again quite happily.
