Nickelback released a new album last year, did a brief run in the states…and then it was off to Europe, Canada, seemingly anywhere but the US. In fact, Nickelback is currently touring Canada, finishing up a few last dates with label-mates Thornley. And then, off to Australia. BUT…BUT NOW there are US tour plans. True. Nickelback will be hitting the road in the US for a national co-headline tour with 3 Doors Down beginning at the end of June and running through the end of July. For details on this upcoming tour, read press release below: New York City, March 22nd: Multi-platinum rock artists 3 Doors Down and Nickelback will join forces this summer when the two mega bands kick off a national co-headline tour beginning at the end of June and running through the end of July 2004. This will be one of the biggest tours of the summer with both bands playing full sets produced with their trademark sound and performances that include laser lights, pyrotechnics and video special effects. According to 3 Doors Down lead singer Brad Arnold, the two bands got together because there was some good history there. “We had played some shows with Nickelback when we toured in support of our first album, The Better Life, says Arnold and thought it would be cool to go out with them again. “I can’t wait to get back on the road with the 3 Doors boys,” says Chad Kroeger, Nickelback’s lead singer. Kroeger adds,” They are like family to us and we have had some amazing times together. We are looking forward to some more great times ahead.” The trek will be Nickelback’s first US tour of 2004. Opening acts have yet to be announced. Tour dates and ticket information will be announced next week.
