Performers

Name: Nickelback

Crowned Rock Group of the Decade by Billboard, Nickelback has been a force to be reckoned with since bursting onto the worldwide charts with their 2001 debut smash "How You Remind Me" - certified by Billboard as "Top Rock Song of the Decade" and "Most Played Song of the Decade" by Neilsen SoundScan - from their eight-times platinum album Silver Side Up. Thirteen years, and 23 chart-topping singles later -- including such indelible classics like "Photograph", "Savin' Me", "Far Away", "Someday" and "Rockstar" -- only Nickelback has remained rock-steady during the most turbulent periods in the recording industry. And true to form, the Vancouver-based quartet has beaten the odds with their hotly-anticipated and distinctive eighth studio album No Fixed Address, a title which offers a clue to the band's enduring longevity, relevance and allure for millions of fans around the world. The origins of Nickelback can be traced to brothers Chad, Mike, and Brandon Kroeger. In 1995, the trio formed a band in Vancouver, taking their name from Chad's task of giving change while working at Starbucks. The Kroeger's faithful friend and bandmate since junior high school Ryan Peake, who recalls their band's early days of defying musical trends to carve out their own niche in that once-predominant era of grunge rock that quickly faded into disposable synthetic pop by the early 2000s. These humble small-town boys from Hanna, Alberta who spent their early years driving themselves town-to-town across rural Canada in a busted old van playing tiny clubs for what seemed the princely sum of $300 per week and some free beer. The next year, Nickelback released their first major label album, The State, which produced three successful singles that took the record to #3 on the Billboard Heatseekers chart. The group reached the next plateau of success with their third album, Silver Side Up, in 2001, which took Nickelback from supporting act to headliner on tour dates. The three lead singles, "How You Remind Me," "Too Bad," and "Never Again," all shot to the top of the singles charts. The album went on to sell over ten million copies and was boosted by Chad Kroeger's recording of "Hero" as the theme for the Spider-Man movie. Nickelback found their success on a roll with the release of The Long Road in 2003. The album debuted at the #6 spot on the Billboard 200 and eventually went double platinum. While their next album, All the Right Reasons, was received negatively by some critics, fans loved the album and it reached #1 on the Billboard 200. The album's five singles -- "Photograph," "Savin' Me," "Rockstar," "If Everyone Cared," and "Far Away" -- all made it to the top twenty spots on the Hot 100 singles. All the Right Reasons sold over 7 million copies and spent over a hundred weeks in the top ten of the Billboard charts. Nickelback's 2008 album, Dark Horse, achieved the similar success that the band had experienced throughout their career. While the lyrical content of the album featured racier, more adult-themed tracks, fans loved it. Undeniably, the band has hit another home run with No Fixed Address, which strikes all the right power chords as they once again prove their uncanny knack for shaking rock & roll to its very core while surfing the Zeitgeist. Their electrifying and galvanizing first single "Edge of a Revolution" is the band's fiercely-charged protest anthem that jolts awake a bygone era of rock music as the once preeminent voice of dissent and protest. With such ripped-from-the headline lyrics as "Hey! Hey! Just Obey! Your secret's safe with the NSA" and "In God we trust or the CIA?", "Edge of a Revolution" boldly serves as a battle cry against the steadily pervasive political, social and financial subjugation worldwide. "Wall Street / Common thief / When they get caught / They all go free / A brand new yacht and a finders fee" growls Chad Kroeger as he soars into leading a fist-pumping chorus of chants: "What do we want? We want change! And how we going to get there? REVOLUTION!" Complete with LA director Wayne Isham's Orwellian counter-culture video, Nickelback's incendiary chart-topper is yet further testament that rock & roll is definitely not dead.

Name: Stone Temple Pilots

Since the moment they appeared on the scene in the early 90's, Stone Temple Pilots dominated the decade from start to finish, racking up 15 singles on the Billboard Top Ten, winning a "Best Hard Rock Performance" GRAMMY in 1994 for for "Plush," and having their five albums sell more than 35 million copies worldwide. Of all their peers, STP alone had sustained commercial success, earning greater critical acclaim with each release, building a body of work that remains popular and its enduring acclaim has only highlighted the absence of the band, who quietly went their separate ways after the turn-of the millennium release of Shangri-La Dee Da. Despite the presence of the greatest hits album Thank You in 2003, there has been a generation that has never witnessed the live power of the vocalist Scott Weiland, guitarist Dean DeLeo, bassist Robert DeLeo and drummer Eric Kretz live in concert, a situation that will be remedied this summer when the band reunites for a long-awaited and highly anticipated tour. A dominant force in rock music since their inception, the group's impressively extensive and top-selling music has cemented their standing as one of the most successful rock groups of all time. Scott Weiland and Robert DeLeo met at a Black Flag concert in Long Beach, California, discovering in the course of their conversation that the two were dating the same girl. Instead of sparking a rivalry, this common ground was the foundation of a friendship, with the pair moving into the girl's apartment after she left town. Weiland and DeLeo formed a band called Mighty Joe Young, with drummer Eric Kretz joining the lineup soon afterward, with Robert's brother Dean coming aboard not long after that. Soon, the group established themselves as a draw in San Diego, eventually gaining the attention of Atlantic Records who signed them in 1991. After hearing that there was a blues singer calling himself Mighty Joe Young, the group changed their name to Stone Temple Pilots during the recording of their 1992 debut album, Core. Core was bracing blend of grunge guitars, classic rock moves and big pop hooks. At first, the ironic swagger of "Sex Type Thing" brought them onto MTV and radio, but it was "Plush" that blew the doors wide open for the band, establishing them as multi-platinum act in 1993. A pair of subsequent singles were released from Core -- "Wicked Garden" and the spooky, acoustic "Creep" -- before they delivered Purple in 1994. A large, eager fan base snatched Purple up upon its opening week, sending it to # 1 but Purple wasn't a one-week wonder, it grew as the record spun off hit after hit: first there was the majestic, cryptic "Big Empty," taken from The Crow soundtrack, then there was "Vasoline," which was followed by the modern rock classic "Interstate Love Song," a radio smash that stayed on the top of Billboard's Album Rock charts for 15 weeks, besting the record set by the Rolling Stones' "Start Me Up. " Not content to continue to replicate the heavy hooks of their first two albums, Stone Temple Pilots dug deep into glam and Beatleseque psychedelia on their third album, 1996's Tiny Music...Songs from the Vatican Gift Shop, which produced hits in the stomping "Big Bang Baby," tightly-wound "Trippin' on a Hole in a Paper Heart" and beautiful "Lady Picture Show." The band then regrouped for 1999's tough, muscular No. 4, a hard rock album that nevertheless had a wistful highlight in "Sour Girl," which turned into one of STP's biggest hits. Two years later, the group released Shangri-La Dee Da, which achieved a perfect blend of their thick riffs and candy melodies, typified by the hit "Days of the Week." Stone Temple Pilots went their separate ways after Shangri-La Dee Da, leaving the question of a reunion hanging in the air. A greatest hits album called Thank You in 2003 only reminded fans that all great bands have a certain magic that is attained when the original lineup comes together to play, something Stone Temple Pilots will prove that this summer when they reunite for this long-awaited tour. In Spring 2008 STP officially revealed that the band will be reuniting and will launch a massive 2008 concert tour encompassing over 65 dates and hitting all corners of North America. Marking the first national tour for Stone Temple Pilots in almost eight years, the 65 date stretch will bring the iconic band's charismatic musicianship and exhilarating live shows to amphitheatres across North America.

I knew I wanted to play. Whenever you hear someone with that much soul, when they really believe what they are playing, it’s so inspiring.”
