The rains held off for Nickelback’s return to SPAC on Monday, July 10. Over 14,000 showed up to sing along to the Canadian rock band’s numerous hits as well as some new songs off the new album, Feed the Machine, that came out earlier this year. While it’s been 16 years since Nickelback’s only US #1, “How You Remind Me,” that didn’t stop dedicated fans from traveling hours to see Chad Kroeger and company on the famous Saratoga stage. Five hours of music, with openers Shaman’s Harvest starting at as early as 6, and another crowd favorite Daughtry providing direct support before Nickelback’s two-hour set with three encores.
Setlist: Feed the Machine, Woke Up This Morning, Photograph, Far Away, Too Bad, Someday, If Everyone Cared, Where Do I Hide, If Today Was Your Last Day, Because of You, Song on Fire, Something in Your Mouth, Rockstar, When We Stand Together, Animals, Figured You Out, How You Remind Me
Encore: Gotta Be Somebody, This Afternoon, Burn It to the Ground
