Nickelback set to rock UK with tour later this year
Multi-platinum selling rock band Nickelback visit the UK this autumn for a nine-date stadium tour.
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.
