PRESS RELEASE – Each and every time fans come through the gates at CHS Field, the St. Paul Saints aim to make their experience as fun and enjoyable as possible. However, on Wednesday, August 31 at 7:05 p.m., we’ll be doing the complete opposite as the ballpark becomes an attempt to withstand musical torture with our “salute” to Nickelback.
With the Canadian band celebrating its 15-year anniversary and a Canadian team, the Winnipeg Goldeyes, in town the Saints are offering a unique way to add some change to your pocket.
From the time the gates open until the seventh inning of the ballgame, Saints organist and Musical Director, Andrew Crowley, will forgo tickling the ivory keyboard and instead exclusively play the music of the wannabe Rockstars. While everyone will be Trying Not To Love the fact we are devoting an entire night to Nickelback, we don’t want to be Here Without You on what should be a perfect night for a Photograph. Just consider this a unique way that We Remind You of the existence of the group that Rolling Stone readers named the second worst rock band of the nineteen-nineties.
For fans that are able to stay inside the ballpark until the seventh inning, they will receive a nickel upon exiting the stadium as a reward for going through what might feel like Your Last Day. We can’t guarantee that Nobody will Cry over the course of the evening at CHS Field, we just hope it doesn’t bring us to the Edge of Revolution and that fans don’t Burn It To The Ground as a result. No matter how Far Away fans roam from the ballpark after this night, they’ll have a reminder of this one-of-a-kind promotion. And after a full night of Nickelback, we promise to Never Again play the repetitive three chords of the band.
