The final stop of Nickelback’s North American tour in Vancouver, B.C. saw the band’s former frontman SCOTTROCKER (a.k.a. Scott Holman) take the stage in Vancouver, B.C.
Years before topping the charts, the boys of Nickelback had a touring cover band called Village Idiot, which saw Holman serve as lead singer.
Though the band had a secret reunion stop planned with Holman in their hometown of Hanna, Alberta, news quickly spread after Kroeger spoke about the gig on Nikki Sixx’s radio show “Sixx Sense”. “The secret was out and the venue sold out. Definitely the most fun I’ve ever had on stage!” Holman said. “Amazing performances by all the bands and the hometown crowd was so appreciative. It was a very special moment.”
The great show led Kroeger to invite Holman to take the lead on a cover of Red Hot Chili Peppers’ “Suck My Kiss” when the band rolled into Vancouver’s Rogers Arena on October 1. “Our [Hanna] set really went off. I guess that prompted Chad to ask me to sing in Vancouver.”
Also joining them onstage was original Village Idiot drummer Sean Watts, who currently plays with Punch Drunk Cabaret. Said Holman, “When Chad asked me to sing in Vancouver he explained [Nickelback] drummer Daniel Adair could learn the song. But I was like, Hey Sean already knows it, you should bring him! Playing with Sean and Nickelback at Rogers Arena was a perfect ending to an incredible weekend.”
When he isn’t filling in for Kroeger, Scottrocker performs with band Curds & Whey.
