Nickelback’s Chad Kroeger On Opening Acts: “You Don’t Ever, Ever, Ever Want To Go On After Sevendust”


Chad Kroeger, vocalist for diamond-certified hard rock outfit Nickelback, has high praise for the live abilities of alternative veterans Sevendust. Speaking to Loudwire Nights of sharing the stage with the gold-certified Atlanta, GA natives in the past, Kroeger offered:

“It was us, then Disturbed, then Sevendust. After the success of ‘Silver Side Up‘, there were a few dates where Sevendust opened for us. I don’t care how many records you’ve sold or how many awards you’ve won or what you’ve done around the world…. you don’t ever, ever, ever want to go on after Sevendust, because they will kick your ass and wipe you all over that stage. They are a force to be reckoned with and it is goosebump-worthy.”

Sevendust are presently out on the road closing out the final leg of their 21st anniversary touring in support of their gold-certified 2001 album “Animosity“. Joining them on that trek are Nonpoint and Bastardane, who feature Castor Hetfield, the son of Metallica vocalist/guitarist James Hetfield.
