There’s no denying Billboard‘s ‘Rock Group of the Decade’, NICKELBACK continue to reign supreme as one of the most enduring and commercially successful acts of the past two decades. The recent release of the band’s brand new studio album, No Fixed Address, saw the band blast into the ARIA Album charts with a #3 debut and is rapidly approaching platinum sales, proving yet again, Australians love Nickelback!
Due to an overwhelming demand for tickets, a second and final Melbourne show will be played at Rod Laver Arena on Saturday May 16, and Newcastle fans are in for a treat as the band announces their return for the first time in nearly ten years, for one-show-only at the Newcastle Entertainment Centre on Saturday May 23.
Tickets for both new shows will go on sale at midday on Thursday February 12.
My Live Nation members can be amongst the first to secure tickets during the pre-sale beginning at midday Wednesday February 11. For complete tour and ticketing details, visit: www.livenation.com.au
“We can’t wait to tour Australia. Aside from being one of the most beautiful places on Earth and having such a vibrant, storied and rich musical heritage; simply put, it’s the people that make it so special for us. Australians have an insatiable musical appetite and are among the best fans in the world. I’ve played some of my favourite shows there and always look forward to making it back.” – Mike Kroeger
The decibels will rise as Nickelback fire up their trademark unmistakably huge sound, lifting the roof with anthems ‘Someday’, ‘Gotta Be Somebody’, ‘When We Stand Together’, ‘Burn It to the Ground’ and the classic ‘Figured You Out’ – plus new tracks ‘What Are You Waiting For?’ and ‘Edge of A Revolution’ – ringing out alongside all-time-classic power ballads such as: ‘Far Away’, ‘Lullaby’, ‘Trying Not to Love You’ plus ‘Photograph’, ‘Savin’ Me’ and ‘How You Remind Me’ from the historic All the Right Reasons (the album spent an incredible 112 consecutive weeks in Billboard’s Top 200 selling more than eleven million copies worldwide).
The band’s worldwide album sales exceed 50 million, solidifying their status as the second best-selling foreign act of the 21st century in the U.S., behind only The Beatles.
Nickelback’s Australian sales have hit 14-times-platinum and their previous studio release, Here and Now debuted at #1 on the ARIA chart, their fifth consecutive album to hit the Top 5 with singles ‘When We Stand Together’ and ‘Lullaby’ going platinum and gold respectively.
The band has had five more singles hit the ARIA Top 10: ‘How You Remind Me’, ‘Someday’, ‘Photograph’, ‘Far Away’ and ‘Figured You Out’.
No Fixed Address (through Universal Music Australia) is out now and features the singles ‘What Are You Waiting For?’ and ‘Edge of a Revolution’. ‘Satellite’, the third single to be taken from the album is at radio now.
