Live Review : Nickelback at Newcastle Entertainment Centre – May 23, 2015

Nickelback

Nickelback keep it loud and personal during their Newcastle leg of the No Fixed Address world tour.

I guess the opening song said it all “Million Miles an Hour”. This was the speed Nickelback took to the stage and to the audience during the Newcastle stopover of their No fixed Address World Tour. “Newcastle, what are the chances of landing here on a Saturday night” one of the many interactions lead singer Chad Kroeger had with the audience during their powerful 20 song set. This was the second time the Canadian rockers had visited the city in the past 5 years, this time it was on the back of their eighth studio album No Fixed Address.

Jurassic 5 at Newcastle Panthers

The founding six of Jurassic 5 hit the stage with power and precision playing a powerful ninety minute set to a packed and appreciative house. Founding MC’s Akil, Zaakir and Marc 7, moved synergistically with the deep voice of Chali 2na to give the Newcastle fans a real treat.
