Sensational alternative rock artists Nickelback and Daughtry are bringing their signature sounds to the Xfinity Center!
Nickelback was formed in Hanna (Alberta, Canada) in the early 1990s by Chad Kroeger, Ryan Peake, Mike Kroeger, and Brandon Kroeger. They started off as a cover band (called the Village Idiots) and would perform songs from Led Zeppelin and Metallica. Mike, who used to work at Starbucks at the time, would often give customers their change while saying "Here's your nickel back", and they decided to change their name to Nickelback. Their musical style includes elements of various genres such as post grunge, hard rock, pop rock, alternative rock, and they cite Creedence Clearwater Revival, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Metallica, Miles Davis, U2, Bob Marley, and John Coltrane as their main influences. The band’s been through a few line up changes over the years and it currently consists of Chad (lead vocals and lead guitar), Ryan (rhythm guitar, keyboards, and backing vocals), Mike (bass guitar and backing vocals), and Daniel Adair (drums and backing vocals). They’ve had a stellar career with 9 studio albums, 2 compilation albums, 5 video albums, 30 music videos, 1 extended play, and 43 singles. They’ve received many accolades including 2 American Music Awards, 6 Billboard Music Awards, 12 Juno Awards, and 7 Much Music Video Awards.
