Nickelback Concert

Friday Chris and I drove to Hartford Ct to see the Nickelback concert at the XL Center (we are big Nickelback fans). 

The drive itself was kind of a nightmare, we were stuck in rushhour traffic, due to some very poor planning on our part.  What would have normally taken us 2 hours took quite a bit longer. In addition, when all you can think about is how soon you can be at the bathroom door, it makes it a really long and suffering ride.

We planned to have a nice dinner before the concert but that got shelled because we were so late so we ended up wolfing down some fast food , while standing next to a trash can. (sigh)

The concert was AWESOME, we loved it and cannot wait to go back again sometime and hear them live.  They really put on such a great and entertaining show.

 I admit, I loved the pyro, I think aside from seeing this group live, it was the thing I was most looking forward too.  We were sitting very close to the stage so we got some great photos.  An extra added benefit of the pyro beyond how cool it was, is that our seats were quite chilly because a cold draft was blowing on us all night.  It was of course also, a cold night with high winds anyway so, we were a bit cold.  When the pyro exploded we would get a fabulous rush of warmth, boy did that feel good on such a chilly night.  By the end of the evening, we forgot all the problems with traffic, food and cold, we had such a great time.  If you are a fan of this group, they are very worth seeing in person, they put on quite a fabulous show.

Je vous fais de gros bisous.

That's what really makes a good show, when they make you forget the things that stress you out. Glad you had an awesome time!

Awesome! I'd like to go see them someday, I've seen Three Doors Down, Shinedown, Trapt (twice), Saving Abel, etc but not them!
