Nickelback (lost video/audio recordings from SAP Center show; 2012)
Nickelback is an rock band originally from Hanna, Alberta, Canada. Around early-January 2012, Nickelback announced the tour dates for the upcoming Here and Now Tour with opening acts Bush, Seether and My Darkest Days, with one of the dates taking place in San Jose, California on June 18th of that same year.
This would be the first time any fans in San Jose would get an opportunity to experience Nickelback since 2000.
At the event, attendees did manage to film the majority of the concert with over a thousand photos taken.
While there was amateur video footage from the event, there were a few cameramen who filmed the Nickelback, Bush and Seether sets with video displaying from the left and right display screens, and a few attendees would also record the event via audio recorders. Unfortunately, those recordings including the professional video that was taken at the night of the event would not surface.
Some pictures that were taken could be seen one of the cameramen filming Nickelback, Bush and Seether's set, with that overlaying to the display screens at the event. It is unclear if the professional video was recorded or not.
In May 2021, It was determined that soundboard audio was recorded on that night as well, as one of the amateur video sources contained the audio mixer in the back area with one of the engineers operating the mixer.
Almost a year later, a individual contacted Nickelback's attorney Jonathan Simkin to ask if they would have any professional video footage from the event. It is unclear on whether or not it was filmed. In June, that same individual posted a 2-hour video on YouTube to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the event with video footage taken by attendees.
