Saturday, July 15, 2023 6:30 PM at T-Mobile Arena, Las Vegas | Nickelback began as a cover band in Hanna, Alberta, Canada, in the early 90s called Village Idiot. Current members include Chad Kroeger on guitar and lead vocals; Mike Kroeger on bass; Ryan Peake on guitar, keyboard and back-up vocals and Daniel Adair on drums. Nickelback has sold over 50 million albums worldwide making them one of Canada's most successful bands ever. Their music appeals to a diverse group, falling into multiple genres including grunge, hard rock, pop rock, metal and nu metal. Over the years, Nickelback has been influenced by bands like Red Hot Chili Peppers, Metallica and U2. Before hitting the States, they performed alongside bands like Creed and Everclear, building their fan base in Canada. Believe it or not, the name Nickelback does not hail from any football reference. Instead, the band named themselves after a line Mike Kroeger often used with his customers when he worked at Starbucks. Most of his coffee sales equaled $1.45, $2.95 or $3.95. For those paying in cash, he would return their change to them, stating Here is your nickel back. The term nickel back stuck and thus a band name was born.
