Why Nickelback’s Chad Kroeger thinks even the haters will see upcoming Pantera shows

Nickelback frontman Chad Kroeger talking about the future Panther show, saying that even those Pantera fans who hate the idea of ​​a so-called “comeback tour” will be at the show.

Talking about LA Lloyd Podcast about the Pantera tour featuring original members Philip Anselmo and Rex Brownadds Zak Wylde on lead guitar and Charlie Benante behind the set, Kroeger seems amped up for the shows. He says he “want to see those songs performed live… and scream (them.)”

Kroeger is a longtime fan of the band, as Nickelback recorded a song in 2005 called “Side of a Bullet,” inspired by the death Dimebag Darrell. (Kroeger’s lyrics in the chorus are “How could you take his life away / What made you think you were right? / How could you be so full of hate / To take someone’s life?“)

Kroeger tells Lloyd, “When you listen to a Pantera record and think to yourself — well, like we thought the last time, I don’t know how many years ago the band broke up, it’s like, ‘Oh, I’ I will never see these songs live again.’ And it’s heartbreaking. So the fact that the boys are called in here and there… [I] love Zakk, love Charlie… great guys. I think the fact that they come on stage and do this… All Phil has to do is just get up there and crush it… as long as Phil brings it, it’s going to be great. Just to be able to sit back and watch those guys work it up… And I think all the fans are going to love that.”

Then Kroeger also finds a common thread between some Nickelback fans and those Pantera fans who are potentially upset about doing a “Pantera” show with half the band as replacements for the originals. He laughs and says, “Anyone who sits back and hates the idea, I think when it comes to the city, they’re going to do the same thing that happens to the people who say they don’t like Nickelback… They always find themselves on display. Weird, shocking! It’s like, ‘Oh, I hate those guys. They suck.’ ‘Are you going?’ ‘Of course.'”

Pantera’s first dates on stage in 2022 will take place in December, a Hell & Heaven Metal Fest in Mexico on Dec. 2, and the three other performances at South American Knotfest shows.

Nickelback, meanwhile, is promoting theirs upcoming album get startedwhich will be released in November along with their new single “San Quentin.” Kroeger stopped by recently Loudwire nights and told host Toni Gonzalez that people have been mispronounces his name for many years and that he never want to follow a certain band on stage again.
