Multi-platinum, chart-topping rock band, NICKELBACK, have landed in Australia with their massive Feed The Machine Tour. The tour is three shows only, Brisbane have already had their turn and now tonight in a sold out Qudos Bank arena ,it is Sydneys turn to Feed The Machine.

With NICKELBACK on this tour are every special guests Bad Wolves, these guys are out of LA and they pack a hard hitting sound that blows out of the stadium speakers and has the crowd revved up. If you are not familiar with their work you should become familiar with songs like Officer Down and Remember When they are two of their best but perhaps they are best known for their cover of the Cranberries Zombie which is dedicated to the late Dolores O’riordan and performed in her honour, it was the last track of their set and it had everybody on their feet by its end giving the band a standing ovation for a superb performance. Those heading to Melbourne make sure you are in early to catch these guys you don’t want to miss out.

It is time ladies and gentleman for us to rock out as NICKELBACK take to the stage a deafening roar fills the arena and the band waste no time opening with title track of their latest album Feed The MachineNICKELBACK are a band that know exactly who they are and what their fans want and they deliver the goods playing tracks from the band’s enduring nine-album body of work such as all-time classics, Photograph, Far Away, Hero, or Gotta Be Somebody. One special treat in the set tonight was Hangnail and oldie and hasn’t been played in a while. The band came to have a good time celebrating a Friday night in Sydney as they drink shots and talk with the crowd between songs. Two lucky young fans even got to join the band on stage and help sing Rockstar. Saving their best for last they finish of the set with How You Remind Me it was like the entire Qudos Bank Arena was one big karaoke joint as we all sang the words so strong and loud. That wouldn’t be the final moment though they came out for the encore and hit us with two more finishing things off by Burning It To The Ground.

NICKELBACK tonight crushed it inside the Qudos Bank Arena a high octane show from the go to woe. This has to be their biggest and loudest production I have ever seen, they just blasted out hit after hit and you can see why Australian audiences love this band so much they are truly masters of the Arena, simply spectacular.
