Nickelback brought their ‘Get Rollin’ Tour to Freedom Mortgage Pavilion on Tuesday night as part of an MMR Concert Event. Canadian country singer Josh Ross and Jefferson, Georgia’s own Brantley Gilbert were also along for the ride.
I was still on the air at the station when Josh Ross hit the stage, so I missed his set. However, I was able to catch the majority of Brantley Gilbert’s set. I have to tell you, he and his band were great! Hard rocking would be an understatement. They incorporate a great mix of hard rock, metal, and country into their performances.
Mix in some fire and pyro, and you’ve got one hell of a show! Brantley Gilbert and his band are a great act for Nickelback to have on tour with them in support, and you can tell Chad Kroeger and the fellas love having them on tour with them.
Gilbert and his band have six studio albums to their name, including their most recent, 2022’s So Help Me God.
After a brief “Hello” from yours truly, Nickelback hit the Freedom Mortgage Pavilion stage and kicked off their set with their massive new hit “San Quentin” off of their brand-new album Get Rollin’, which came out late last year via BMG/Nickelback II Productions.
The album was just rereleased back in June in a deluxe edition featuring a bunch of bonus live and acoustic tracks, along with new cover art.
During the set, Nickelback brought a fan from the crowd up on stage for a rendition of “Rockstar”, and let’s say, “Drunk Tom” didn’t deliver as planned. Or did he? Check out the video!

Nickelback wrapped the night with a pyro-filled version of their massive hit “Burn it to the Ground”, and thankfully, unlike Disturbed, didn’t set off the sprinkler system at the Freedom Mortgage Pavilion! Chad even did a Jagerbomb shot with “Santa” before the song!
