Chrystal checks out Nickleback and Seether at the Sommet Center in Nashville, TN and gets fan reviews of the show! 02/25/2009

I was really surprised with how much I enjoyed this concert. I never considered myself a Nickelback fan, but I guess I am because I knew a lot of songs that they played by heart. Kind of like U2, I never bought a CD or actively researched them, but they are so popular that I subconsciously learned a ton about them through media and airplay.

Here’s the thing about Nickelback – I feel that their promo photos and marketing make them look so serious. In concert, they are smiling and gracious towards the fans. Not that it matters, but I found them physically more attractive in person, because you can see that they have some personality.

There wasn’t much to the stage set up. There was one large projection screen that displayed images, and then there were some spurts of flames here and there. During “Photograph,” there was a slideshow of photos taken of the band and their friends and families throughout the years. That was heartfelt.

Their actual stage was the most original part of the set. It extended into a catwalk that went out into the audience with a platform at the end. A drum set came up from the floor at the end of the platform and the guys did a few songs from there. They then shot some t-shirts out into the crowd with one of those guns you see at sports events. Fun stuff. I’ve never seen that at a concert.

I was impressed by the crowd. Nickelback fans filled out the Sommet Center pretty well…and on a Wednesday night even. They had some decent opening acts too. I saw Seether, and can say that I am a fan now. I’m going to hit up iTunes as soon as I’m finished with this review to buy some of their music.

Tickets for this show were not outrageously priced either. I think they started around $40 and went up to $80 or so.  For such a popular band and the lineup – they might have been able to milk the crowd for more. They were smart. You might as well charge less for the tickets, and have more people show up.
