Saturday Night: Nickelback & Bush at Toyota Center

Nickelback, Bush, Seether, My Darkest Days Toyota Center June 2, 2012

While the rest of the Rocks Off crew at Summer Fest was settling in for a long night of Snoop Dogg, Flaming Lips, and more, this guy was leaving the Fest and making the short trip over to the Toyota Center for Saturday night's big rock show featuring Nickelback, Bush, Seether, and My Darkest Days.

From the top of the building on down to the special $400-plus per ticket VIP section it was packed, with only a handful of empty seats in the building. It was a crowd that showed up excited, almost giddy, at the chance to see the biggest band in North America live and in person.

They got a show that was full to the brim of with your standard rock clichés, from the opening act mentioning the headliner for a cheap pop all the way to the big rock drum solo.

They loved every minute of it.
