- Here's the original tweet from Telus that came during Nickelback's set at McMahon Stadium Thursday (the spelling of @Nickelback was subsequently corrected).
- — TELUS (@TELUS)Fri, Aug 16 2013 04:42:51Hi everyone. The @Nickelback exclusive performance was a request from the band. Sorry we couldn't live stream this portion of the concert.
- Here is some of the reaction from fans unhappy the band, and Telus, wouldn't allow the performance to be streamed or broadcast.
