I find this attitude amusing on many levels. First of all, the band is playing in Boise, Idaho. This isn’t Manhattan, let’s be honest. Is the Boise Symphony Orchestra off that night? Also, the Idaho Center
Arena seats more than 12 thousand people. They’ve already sold a lot of tickets, so people do seem to want to see this band.
So what is it that makes Nickelback the band that everyone hates? Surely there are other equally obnoxious, unoriginal, corporate sounding, goatee-sporting bands out there to pick on. That’s like shooting fish in a barrel.
