The Canadian rockers will be stopping off in Sheffield, Nottingham, Glasgow, Newcastle, Manchester, London, Liverpool and Birmingham as part of their tenth world tour that will see them performing in 30 cities across Europe.

The band had to cancel UK dates last year after lead singer Chad Kroeger was ordered to take an extended period of vocal rest.

The group’s worldwide sales exceed 50 million units and their smash How You Remind Me remains Billboard’s Top Rock Song of the Decade.

They’ve also been crowned Billboard’s Top Rock Group of the Decade.

Along the way, they have received nine Grammy Award nominations, three American Music Awards, a World Music Award, and a People’s Choice Award.

In their native Canada, the band have garnered 36 JUNO Award nominations of which 12 won in a variety of categories and have been inducted into Canada’s Walk of Fame.

Following their most recent release in 2014, the band are said to be working on their ninth studio album.

Ahead of the tour Kroeger said “Get ready Europe, we are bringing one hell of a loud party to our fans over there!"
