Nickelback in Portugal

Thu, Aug 9, 2012 at 2:41 PM By: Maffy

Well, the first time that nickelback visited Portugal did not run very well. This happened in 2002. They came to a hard metal festival .. well, nickelback don't fit in this kind of music. When they finished to play the very 1st song water bottles and rocks started to fly to the stage and to Chad .. unfortunately one bottle hitted Chad's head and that made them abandon the concert ... From what I see, they wont come back to Portugal and I think its a big injustice to the fans who were there to see them and others that will probably never go to a nickelback concert because of some stupid people.

    Yeah i know..but it was pretty bad what happened...chad could really get hurt and it was the crowd fault because they didnt respect the band and the fans that were there to see them...It can be other reasons of course but this festival was really terrible for them and yeah...they have many fans here and i hope they come and gives a concert because we really want to ...i would understand if they dont come back but it's unfair for all the portuguese fans who really like them...

    I´m not from Portugal but I think you´re right... They have haters in many countries I guess and just because one festival 10 years ago went bad they shouldn´t stop playing concerts there. They always say they do not really care about the haters and I think that´s good because they are very successful and have many fans. I don´t know if that festival is the reason why they don´t go to Portugal but if it is the reason I can understand that. I would not like to go where I´m obviously not welcome... But that was one festival and that doesn´t mean that whole Portugal hates them... They also have fans there and it would be cool for them if they would play concerts there.
    But maybe there are other reasons like money or other musical things...
