Nickelback at St. Louis!!

Nickelback brings Here & Now tour to Scottrade, Bush is a no-show

photos and story by 
Scott Kiefer
Canadian supergroup Nickelback swept through St. Louis on their current 'Here & Now' tour Tuesday evening bringing their catalog of hits and new music to a near sold-out crow at Scottrade Center.
The group's tour is a massive one that also stars Bush, Seether, and My Darkest Days, however Bush cancelled their portion of the show. As fans approached the doors to Scottrade signs at the door stated that Bush would not perform "due to unforeseen circumstances," which were never explained to the fans. However officials at the venue stated that there was a flight delay from Denver that held up lead singer Gavin Rossdale.
None the less, the show went on with adjusted show times, allowing Seether and extended set, with Nickelback taking the stage at 8:30 instead of the scheduled 9 p.m., which actually was a good thing considering it was a Tuesday night show that was scheduled to begin at 6 p.m.
Nickelback lead singer Chad Kroeger and brother Mike, along with guitarist/vocalist Ryan Peake and drummer Daniel Adair treated fans to 90 minutes of typical Nickelback rock 'roll flare, much to the delight of their die-hard fans,
Complete with pyrotechnics, lasers, massive video screens, the band switched it up throughout the night with staples as "Photograph,"  "If Today Was Your Last Day," " Something In Your Mouth," along with "Bottoms Up," and "This Means War," from the 'Here and Now' album. Of course, fan favorite and mega-hit "Rockstar," had the audience singing along.
The highlight of the evening had to be when the band left the stage to run through the audience to a secondary stage at the back of the venue, to entertain those who didn't have a close up view. As the fans thoroughly enjoyed the experience, it was in true rock and roll fashion that the boys stage rose in the air, rotated and "floated" around inside the venue, bringing the true "awe factor" to the evening.
No matter what many say about Nickelback about being to 'pop-rock' or generic and predictable, their continued high-grossing tours and record sales prove that they do have fans. Fans who want to see them. Fans who they care about giving the best show possible to.
Needless to say, they have succeeded.

Most artists who have experienced the levels of success and adulation Colin Hay has would be content to sit back and earn a living walking to the mailbox and back. Yet Hay is restless, eager to move forward and continually hone his craft while continuing to challenge himself. Hay's solo shows intersperse classic and new songs with hilarious, poignant, and downright surreal stories drawn from his often unbelievable experiences over the past three decades. "I've been doing these solo tours for a number of years," he explains, "going back to the same places and building audiences by doing the best shows I can."  Themes of redemption and renewal come naturally to Colin Hay, as he is in the midst of a remarkable renaissance.

Hour Magazine wrote that “Delhi 2 Dublin is the United Nations of rock ‘n’ roll”. They are a Vancouver based band that plays an energetic mash-up of Bhangra, Celtic, Dub Reggae and Electronica with global rhythms and club beats. Tarun Nayar, Sanjay Seran, Andrew Kim and Ravi Binning along with touring musician Sara Fitzpatrick are diverse in both their backgrounds and musical influences. They have been together over five years and released four albums and an EP including its latest, Delhi 2 Dubland. The Delhi 2 Dublin crew is constantly touring. The musicians feel that they plug directly into the world’s music and energy. The strong word-of-mouth for their live performances has enabled them to build a loyal fan base. Originality and evolution are all part of the Delhi 2 Dublin experience. They have become one of Canada’s most buzzed-about bands and 2012 will only see them enhancing that reputation.

May 24, 2012 -- As CHARM CITY DEVILS continue to travel around the U.S. on their “Sinners Ball Tour” in support of their SINS album (out now via Fat Lady Music), additional shows are now being added, supporting Taproot (starting May 30) and Theory Of A Deadman (starting July 20), that will keep them on the road into the Fall. 
The first single from SINS, a cover of “Man Of Constant Sorrow” (from the Grammy®-winning soundtrack of the George Clooney Oscar®-nominated film “O Brother, Where Art Thou?”), generates new adds at Active Rock radio every week.  It’s currently being spinned on 37 stations and sits in the Top 25 on the Active Rock charts.  A video for the song can be seen here:  And the lyric video with over 268,000 views can be seen here:
A live CHARM CITY DEVILS show is not one to be missed.  Of a recent concert in their hometown (Baltimore), praised:  “…the boys delivered it tonight, Rock and Roll style, broken strings and all, gritty and heartfelt connecting with the fans in attendance tonight.  The crowd was captivated or in tune with the guys tonight.  This is and was Rock and Roll, it’s what it’s all about, the music and the passion and the connection with the people.  Charm City Devils, the people’s band tonight.”
And the album’s been garnering rave reviews since its April 10 release, including:
“…(SINS) is ideal for fans of straight-up two-guitar rock with some edge…Charm City Devils has brought a quasi-retro, trend-free sound to their latest effort and may begin to see the benefits of staying true to that particular style.”
“As much as I loved the band’s debut album, LET’S ROCK-N-ROLLSINS simply blows that album out of the water.  ‘Man Of Constant Sorrow’ is the best cover song I have listened to in a long, long time.  Charm City Devils have taken this 100 year old folk song, and turned into something completely their own. I think they did an outstanding job with this cover…John Allen and company have crafted a bunch of catchy tunes, many of which ought to be hits for Charm City Devils…Don’t miss out on one of the best hard rock albums of 2012!”
“From the opening crash of ‘Spite,’ through to the heavy rock sound of ‘Unstoppable’ into the riff-fueled ‘All You’ll Ever Need,’ SINS is a true rock album with all of the polish and sound necessary to climb the charts.”
 “SINS takes the band to some memorable heights through the course of eleven tracks…the kind of record you’d hear playing loud and proud in a bar or on the national radio waves…Give Charm City Devils a chance with this one.”
