NICKELBACK/SKILLET - Stadthalle Wien - 31 Oktober


On Halloween (31 October), NICKELBACK hit the Austrian stage with special guests SKILLET promoting their new album „The Best Of Nickelback Volume 1“. NICKELBACK are one of the most commercially successful Canadian groups, having sold more than 50 million albums worldwide. The band rocked the house with hits like  “Something in Your Mouth”, “Rockstar” and ballads such as “How you remind me”.



The amazing SKILLET joined NICKELBACK for their European tour. SKILLET released their new album "Rise" in June 2013. Since SKILLET hit the studio for 2006’s breakthrough project “Comatose”, the group toured with the likes of BREAKING BENJAMIN, SEETHER and FLYLEAF. Along the way, the Grammy-nominated alternative outfit also scored three top 40 singles on Billboard’s Mainstream Rock charts, earned a pair of BMI Songwriting Awards and released its first ever concert CD/DVD combo pack in support of the season called “Comatose Comes Alive”.


Hits like “Monster” and “Sick of it” underscored SKILLET’s great song writing potential. GuitarMania also conducted a video interview with the amazing John Cooper. Watch this space, as we will be  publishing the interview with John soon.


Chad Kroeger and his band mates brought a huge smile to the faces of fans from Austria and neighbouring countries at the Stadthalle Wien. We only wished the beer would not cost more than four Euros at the Stadthalle. And even though we badly missed NICKELBACK’s “Follow you home”, Halloween 2013 was definitely a night to remember.
