Nickelback reveal 2016 European tour dates

Nickelback have announced a widespread European tour kicking off in Finland on September 2.

The tour includes nine UK dates and will replace last year’s cancelled shows which were pulled after frontman Chad Kroeger was ordered to rest following surgery to remove a cyst on his vocal cords.

Kroeger says: “Guess who’s coming back to Europe to tour – we are! We’re gonna bring the show and get in the room and we’re all gonna bring a bunch of songs that we all love to get together and sing. We just need you get in the room with us. So let’s do that, we’ll see you soon.”

Fellow Canadians Monster Truck will join the tour as main support.

Fan club members will be granted early access to tickets from March 8 (Tuesday) while general sale begins on March 11 via LiveNation and TicketMaster.
