Multi-million selling Canadians NICKELBACK are set to return to the UK for a string of arena shows this Autumn.
The band are currently riding a tsunami of radio and video play for their current single, ROCKSTAR. The track has resided in the upper reaches of the UK singles chart since December 2007 and is taken from their latest album, FOR ALL THE RIGHT REASONS which has also shifted a staggering 9 million copies to date globally. Both releases currently sit at No.3 in the respective UK singles and albums charts.
Incredible statistics are what NICKELBACK excel at. They have global album sales of around 26 million albums and counting. They’ve bagged numerous awards around the globe and just this week, their ‘Silver Side Up’ album broke the 1 MILLION sales barrier in the UK. To celebrate, the band are excited to announce their UK tour dates this September, including their very first show at the O2 Arena in London’s Docklands. Frontman Chad Kroeger is looking forward to flying back over the pond, stating;
“We can’t wait to get to the UK and give our fans the Nickelback show they deserve!”
Be sure to catch the band at one of the following shows as it’ll be your last chance to see them play before they close ranks and return home to Canada. There they will begin work on album number six, which is pencilled for release in 2009 through Roadrunner Records.
