Daniel Adair and Nickelback have been touring for over a year in support of their latest album “Dark Horse”. Nickelback has sold over 30 million albums worldwide and their tours usually sell-out in advance! Although Daniel is busy he still feels it’s important to connect with other drummers and be apart of the drumming community.
During the bands tour stop in Toronto Daniel dropped-by Just Drums to sign autographs and chat with an overwhelming amount of fans and drummers that were on hand. Commented Dave Hamilton of Just Drums “it’s easy to see how guys like Daniel have so much success, he is an awesome drummer, a super nice guy and a true professional.”
The show at Air Canada Center was a true rock show with fantastic lighting & effects, multiple video screens, great sound and its Nickeback so tons of pyro!!! It also included a moving drum riser which elevated Daniel and his kit during his drum solo. The two-hour show included hit singles from their extensive catalogue such as “Photograph”, “Followed You Home”, “Rockstar” & “How You Remind Me”.
After the show at it was off to Montreal for another Face to Face at Steve’s Music Store and another sold-out show at the Bell Centre that evening.
Daniel commented “I worked in M.I. retail and enjoyed when we would have in-store clinics or have a famous drummer come by. Just the opportunity to chat and exchange advice or idea’s is important and I’m happy to have an opportunity to be apart of the drumming community”.
A very busy afternoon at Steve’s Music Store and then a show in Montreal, then the tour continues on to Ottawa!
