Nickelback “Feed the Machine” Tour featuring Daughtry

Walking around the Verizon Amphitheater in Atlanta, Georgia, half-listening to Shaman’s Harvest (the opening act of Nickelback’s Feed the Machine Tour), it could have been 2017, 2007 or 2001. Nothing about the crowd (except maybe the age) provided a clue: people attired in the timeless fashion of rock concerts including tour shirts, distressed denim, Flashdance-esque torn up tees.
