Concert review: Nickelback, Hoobastank, Chevelle and Hinder

So I went and checked out a great concert last week with some buddies at the Xcel Energy Center in St. Paul. Overall, the best lineup of bands that I wanted to see in a long while. Opening the night was Hinder. A a great new band that is worth checking out; they already have a few radio hits but the album itself is very good overall I first heard of Hinder back before they made it big on a great podcast I listen to on a weekly basis called Joe's Podhole. From this interview, I knew Hinder was all about rock-n-roll. Check out Joe's Podole episode #18 here. Chevelle was up second who also put on a good show...sound-wise. Not much to their stage show but I dig almost all their tunes even live; not band for a 3 piece band. Hoobastank was next and also a band I've seen before; again not a great stage show but was good overall. For the headliner, I was truly impressed. Nickelback put on a great stage show consisting of pyro that I simply haven't seen in a long while. These guys sound exactly like what your hear on their albums or the radio; even the singer had different microphones for different parts of the songs! Overall a great lineup and a great show.


  1. Has anybody seen my watch? Oh, yeah. Forget it.

  2. Hey Benny! Like the website; found it pretty much by accident. Glad to see things are going well for you guys.

    Haven't talked to you in awhile, so thanks for putting this up. Great to know you're still alive, big daddy!
