PiercingMetal Thoughts: I’m going to keep this one quick and easy since I’ve never ever seen Nickelback or Daughtry in concert before despite liking quite a few of the headliners biggest hits. The band has been delivering some quality radio friendly rock for what feels like a couple of decades now and I’d love to cross them off my concert attendance bucket list. I think they get too much of a bum rap and think that the naysayers time is better used in other fashions like promoting more of the bands they do like instead of taking a crap on the more commercially viable fare. What do you readers think about this tour? Is it something that you will be hitting when it comes through your town? You certainly have a few dates to choose from if you are one of those folks who go a couple of times on a run. Let me know what you think in the comments below.
