MONCTON, NB–The first show of the summer on Magnetic Hill is set for this weekend.

Preparations have been underway for weeks now, and Nickelback crews are expected to arrive tomorrow morning with all of the sound, lights and video.

Production Manager for Live Nation/Evenko Ken Craig says this show is expected to draw upwards of 25, 000 fans.  “We’re drawing fans from Newfoundland, Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island, Eastern Quebec and from the United States.  You’d be surprised at how many Americans are coming up from Maine and New Hampshire because you just don’t get these kinds of big names in the Northern States.”

Tickets for Saturdays show are still available at the Moncton Coliseum box office, by phone at 506-857-4100 or 1-855-985-5000.  You can also get them online at www.ticketmaster.ca or www.tickets.moncton.ca
