I've seen Nickelback 4 times, once in 99 before they broke (opening for the Headstones). At that time they were a very hungry, but very tight band learning their craft. I was blown away by their performance.

Then I saw them twice within a few months of each other in 04, and those shows were awesome. Pyro, big stage, great setlist. Couldn't wait to see them again.

I last saw them in 07 (towards the end of the tour) and they were just going through the motions with the t shirt cannon, throwing beer into the audience and it was the same pyro setup as the time before. The setlist sucked and to my dismay, they "piped" in Billy Gibbons vocals and Dimebag Darrell's solo. I was like WTF? Come on!!

My girlfriend at the time (now wife) even said "Jody, Is he lip synching? Watch him, he's a foot away from the microphone, yet we can still hear his voice!".

Then we went and saw John Fogerty like 3 days later, that really but their show into perspective. Haven't seen them since!

I guess this is a band that has become very hit and miss!
