Following a recent performance of theirs at the Tailgate N’ Tallboys music festival, which is based in Illinois, the Canadian rock band Nickelback decided to order pizzas for an afterparty. For this party, the band hit up Pizza Payaa, a pizza joint located in Bloomington, IL that they really, really like.

And when we say they really like this place, we mean they like it enough to first order 30 pizzas from them, only to follow up later and request an additional 50 pizzas. That’s a whopping 80 pizza pies that a delivery person ended up bringing to Nickelback.

Via a Facebook post from the Bloomington Normal Restaurant Scene, Pizza Payaa owner Adam Elpayaa shares the following:

“The TAILGATE N’ TALLBOYS organizer called me and said the NICKELBACK band was ordering an additional 50 pizzas for the night of the show [this is on top of an already standing order of 30 pizzas]. He said NICKELBACK earlier had enjoyed our pizza, plus we could accommodate the vegan and gluten free dietary restrictions of the band and crew.”

Damn, Pizza Payaa must make some incredible pizzas, because 80 pizzas is a lot of fucking pies.

Then again, pizza is one of the greatest foods to ever be created in the history of humanity, so it’s totally understandable to go in on as much as one can when the chance arrives.

Below you can find some photos that feature Pizza Payaa’s pizzas. Also below, you will find Nickelback’s upcoming 2023 tour dates.
