In a new interview with loudwire, chad croegerfrontman of nickelbackhas expressed his opinion on the last row he had Bruce Dickinsonhis counterpart from Iron Maiden, on stage. as you may remember, the englishman started yelling at a fan who was smoking weed during his show. In Kroeger’s case, he prefers that you blow smoke in his face.
Nickelback’s new album, ‘Get Rollin”, came out last Friday and has a song -one of its singles- titled “High Time”, whose theme is marijuana and traveling the United States. It doesn’t appear that Canadians have a problem with the substance. In fact, it seems they even like it.
Dickinson, on the other hand, asked, on his show, “a little bit of respect” because the cannabis smoke bothered both him and Steve Harris. Now, Chad has opened up about whether this could happen, too, at a Nickelback concert.
“No, I usually say: ‘Throw it this way'”the vocalist laughs. “You know, if I’m walking across the stage and I have the microphone, I turn around and go, ‘Wow, something smells great in here!’ I mean yes, that’s what rock concerts are supposed to be like. You’re supposed to have a little bit of that.”
“Well, and it’s not just that, we’ve set off a lot of fireworks, and the chemicals I’ve inhaled from that… Ugh. That’s a lot worse than someone blowing some marijuana smoke at me, that’s not it. big deal. It’s only going to make the show better!”
Mike Kroeger and the Bruce Springsteen concerts
In another talk, in this case with this house, the Nickelback guitarist, mike croeger, revealed that he is not a fan of the duration of Bruce Springsteen concerts. It all started when the artist was asked which songs Canadians would never play live.
“Well, by proxy, we could touch them all. The problem is that we don’t have enough time at a concert. We try that our concerts have a duration that does not exhaust the public”.
“I told many of my friends that I don’t want a concert by my favorite band that lasts more than two hours. I do not want it. Yes, they tire me, so thank you.
“Yeah, we will never do that because we know how people feel. There are artists who do it, like Bruce Springsteen, who sometimes plays for 4 hours and I already want to go home”.
“Because I love his songs, but if I want his songs… I can put them on my phone or whatever. But for me it is too much. Too. It’s roll: ‘I appreciate it, but no thanks’. It’s too much for me. And, you know, a lot of people like that. There are people who like to be there 4 hours. And that’s cool.”
“But we think the same about this band…we all feel that after an hour and a half, 75 or 90 minutes people start to get tired. And we don’t want… I don’t want people to associate us with any negative feeling or emotion. And less fatigue!
