Tribune staffer Dana Ferguson attended Tuesday night's Nickelback show, and here is her report:
Many fans may have been wowed by Nickelback’s pyrotechnics, deafening sound and "flying stage" during a packed show at EnergySolutions Arena on Tuesday night in Salt Lake City. But for others, the blinding effects, excessive drinking or any amount of reminiscing about the glory days of Nickelback could not hide a lackluster performance.
The group kicked off the show with three fast-paced songs: "This Means War," "Something in Your Mouth" and "Never Again," which lead vocalist Chad Kroeger shrieked into his microphone to receptive ears.
The chaos turned to swoons for many of the women in the audience when Kroeger announced he would slow it down to sing "Photograph," and climbed atop a higher stage silhouetted by gleaming white lights.
The concert continued with chart-topping favorites from the band, including "Rockstar," "Lullaby," and "How You Remind Me," all to ridiculously showy effects.
