Portage la Prairie, MB – The Glesby Centre in Portage la Prairie will host the myth busting concert of the century as country superstars, Florida Georgia Line and rock sensations, Nickelback set the record straight.
Despite being mega-stars in different genres, the bands have been dogged by rumours and speculation they were actually the same group. With similar hair and attitude Florida Georgia Line and Nickelback struck formulated success on the charts but were never seen together.
While most fans don’t care if they are one and the same, music journalists have been mining the conspiracy theory of both bands being the Milli Vanilli of country and rock. Local concert promoter Billy Neepawa approached both bands with the idea of holding a concert to dispel the rumours.
“I think both bands share a lot of the same fans and they would like to see them on the same stage,” said Neepawa. “It’ll be proof once and for all that they aren’t the same band. It’ll also prove that country music is really just bad rock.”
Florida Georgia Line and Nickelback have both won numerous awards for their music and are widely considered pioneers in their respective genres.
“I couldn’t think of two modern acts that sum up the musical sensibilities of Portage better than these two. A little bit country and a little bit rock and roll,” offered Neepawa.
Some Portagers remain steadfast in their belief that FGL and NB are the same band. “I don’t give a crap if you put them both in front of me right now. I still say they are the same damn band,” said Bob Morden of Portage. “Don’t know what that Billy Neepawa is trying to prove but I won’t be going.”
For all fans wanting to go tickets will go on sale Friday at 10am at all Music Master and Busy Fingers locations.
