The rumours in June were partially true about Nickelback coming home to Hanna for a concert.
On Friday, there was a show put on at the Hanna Community Centre for six bands. On the list was Village Idiot, the former cover band for Chad Kroeger and Ryan Peake. The event was put on to raise funds for the Hanna Fire Department Association and the Hanna Spray Park Association.
Chad and Ryan flew into Hanna Airport on Friday for the performance. It was an off day from the current tour Nickelback is on. It was a great event and fundraiser for the community.
"The highlight was definately seeing Nickelback as they performed four songs after Village Idiot," stated Margo Dick, who attended the concert.
After the show, Kroeger and Peake hopped back on the plane and flew out of Hanna to continue the Nickelback tour.
Final numbers for the amount rasied are currently being tabulated.
